The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) – Super Specialty (SS) for admission in DM/MCh courses across the country is going to take place on March 10 at test centres across the country. The examination was supposed to take place on November 29.
The examination will be computer-based with 200 Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs). Selected candidates will be admitted to DM/MCh (Doctorate in Medicine/Master in Surgery) courses at medical colleges across India that are approved by the Medical Council of India (MCI). The questions will be based on the MD/MS syllabus accepted by the MCI.
The NEET SS examination will be a single window examination for admission in DM/MCh courses across the country and no state level or institutional level entrance examination will be valid. There are five institutes (AIIMS, JIPMER, PGIMER, SCTIMS, NIMHANS) that are out of the ambit of NEET SS, and will continue with their own entrance examination for the DM/MCh courses.
Before NEET SS, the All India Post Graduate Medical Entrance Examination (AIPGMEE) was conducted for admission in DM/MCh courses during 2014-16. The examination will be conducted by National Board of Examination (NBE). The registration for the examination was extended till November 7, 2016 and since then, applicants were keen on knowing the date of the examination.
