Govt silence over PGMET status perturbs aspirants
SRINAGAR, Oct 15: Around 2000 MBBS-qualified-PG-aspirants continue to be in dark regarding the status of their Post-Graduate Medical Entrance Test (PGMET) with the authorities having assured them only verbally to conduct it at the state level.

Earlier this month, the government surprised the aspirants with its late declaration about the change in the status of the PGMET from state-level to national-level. On a short notice, the aspirants were asked to submit the forms for the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) to be conducted in November.

Later, after objections were raised by the aspirants, the authorities are said to have decided to stick to the state-level test conducted annually by the Board of Professional Entrance Examination (BOPEE). However, no formal notification has been issued in this regard, leaving the aspirants guessing.

“After the cabinet meeting, we were told by the College (Medical College Srinagar) authorities that the examination, like all previous years, will be held at the state-level and, consequently, we did not apply for NEET. But till date it is just a verbal assurance. We do not know what is going to happen in future…,” a female applicant said while talking to Kashmir Times.

“The website(of the NEET conducting body),” she continued, “still shows J&K in the list of the state going for the national-level test…It is so frustrating for all of us.”

The uncertainty about the date of the test is only adding to the applicants’ discomfort. Till date, the authorities are said to have changed two statements regarding the date of the test.

“First they said the test (state-level) will be held in February. Then they changed it to November on the basis that from next year the applicants may have to appear in NEET in the same month. But there is no official statement about the date of the examination. It is perturbing us further," a group of candidates shared.

While most candidates did not apply for NEET, several candidates from the previous batches might have already completed the formalities, adding to the frustration of candidates.

“There are candidates from previous batches we do not know anything about. There are candidates who do MBBS from Bangladesh and other places. And even candidates from Colleges in Jammu…We have no idea how many have applied for NEET already,” the group said, “The only source of information we have is the newspaper and word of mouth. There is no notice coming from the government’s side.”
