Medical pupils seek re-registration for nearer centres

October 7, 2012

With several city medical students getting centres for the first ever National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) for post-graduation courses in far-off places in the north, students who applied on the first day of registration are now seeking re-registration. Students claim they were not informed about the possibility of seats being increased at centres where there are a lot of transactions. However, the testing agency claimed that re-registrationwill not be possible.

A press release issued by Prometric said that students were informed about the increase in the number of seats when the demand is more. An aspirant said, “One of my friends told me that the organizers of the exam mentioned on a social networking site that they would increase the capacity in areas with heavy demand. The only message we got on the registration site on selecting Mumbai as the centre was that the seats are full.”

Another student said, “The organizers should not have claimed the seat allocation was on a first-come-first- served basis. If we had any inclination that they would increase the number of seats later, we would not have hurried to pick a centre.”

The first NEET PG is being conducted by the National Board of Examination and Prometric India is providing the technical support. Soumitra Roy, MD, Prometric India said to PG Times, “NBE has said that candidates are allowed to register only once for NEET-PG. Prometric does not have a Twitter account. We are adding seats where feasible, based on the demand.” On the first day of test registration, 38,000 candidates registered.
