NEET PG 2023: Today, the Supreme Court of India has rejected the plea to postpone the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test – Post Graduate (NEET PG) 2023, which has left many aspirants feeling disappointed and concerned. The NEET PG 2023 exam is set to take place on March 5, as per the original schedule.
During a hearing at the Supreme Court today, ASG Aishwarya Bhati stated that the demand to postpone NEET PG 2023 was only made by a minority of students. Bhati also mentioned that only 6,000 students had applied after the extended internship deadline, out of a total of approximately 2.03 lakh applicants in the first window.
After hearing both arguments, the bench of Justices S Ravindra Bhat and Dipankar Datta denied the plea to postpone the entrance test and refused to entertain any further requests to postpone NEET PG 2023. This decision has left many aspirants feeling disappointed and concerned about their future.

Abhishek, Neha, and several other NEET PG candidates are claiming that their ongoing internships have left them with insufficient time to prepare for the exam. Lakhan Prakash Gupta, currently interning at Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College, Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), stated that his daily hospital duty of 20-24 hours has caused him stress and left him with no time to study. Candidates are also alleging that the National Board of Examinations (NBE) failed to take suggestions from state authorities and medical institutes, indicating a lack of management and accountability.
The National Board of Examinations (NBE) had issued admit cards on March 3, but many candidates took to Twitter to discourage others from downloading them. According to them, the NBE released the admit cards merely to demonstrate to the Supreme Court that candidates have no problems with the exam date. “I refrained from downloading the admit card in the morning because we were aware that the NBE was attempting to convince the Supreme Court that we were okay with the exam date, which is not true. I tried to download it now, but the website is down due to heavy traffic,” said Singh.
Choudhary also mentioned that his NEET PG examination center is located more than two hours away from his hometown. “I live in Saharanpur, and my exam center is in Meerut. Even if I raise any objections, they will only tell me to travel there early in the morning, without understanding the stress of appearing for such a significant exam in a different city.”
