The postgraduate National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET PG) 2021 will be conducted on 11th September 2021, said Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya on Tuesday. The announcement comes a day after the date of the NEET UG exam was announced by Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan.
“We have decided to conduct NEET Postgraduate exam on 11th September 2021,” Mansukh Mandaviya tweeted.
NEET PG was earlier scheduled to be held on April 18. However, it was postponed because of the spike in the number of Covid-19 cases. The decision was taken keeping in mind the wellbeing of the young medical students. The new date for the examination has been announced just a day after the date for NEET UG 2021 was announced. The registration process for the NEET UG exam started today evening at 5 pm. Interested candidates can visit the Ministry of Education’s National Testing Agency (NTA) website for all the details.
