Students on social media were demanding to postpone NEET MDS 2022 exam which was scheduled to be conducted on March 6, 2022. Demand to postpone NEET MDS 2022 has been escalated after the health ministry decided to potpone NEET PG 2022 exam by 6 to 8 weeks on February 4, 2022. Following this, NEET MDS 2022 aspirants got irked as the authorities didn’t consider their issues.
The Ministry of Health has also increased the period of the NEET 2022 MDS internship by two months, allowing applicants to finish their internship by July 31, rather than March 31, 2022.
