National Board of Examinations finally broke its silence on NEET PG scam calls for rank improvement. However they still filed to justify how students data was leaked from their office. The press release stated “National Board of Examinations (NBE), an autonomous organization of Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of India, had conducted NEET-PG 2018 on 07/01/2018 for admission to MD/MS/PG Diploma courses. NEET-PG 2018 was conducted on a computer based platform in 150 cities in a single session format. NBE has received complaints that tout/agents are alluring and misleading the candidates to help them in securing a good merit position / marks if money is paid to them. NBE has taken this very seriously and has filed a complaint with the local Police, Cyber Cell & Crime Branch of Delhi Police. Candidates are cautioned not to be misled by any such false and bogus claims. It is clarified that NBE does not make any phone calls to any candidate or issues any communication regarding the change of rank obtained in any of the exams conducted by NBE or for any other such thing which is against the provisions of law. NBE has declared the result of NEET-PG 2018 on 23/01/2018 in respect of 128917 candidates who had appeared in the exam. In the result NBE has provided the marks obtained by each candidate. Tie breaking of candidates having same marks & same number of correct responses in NEET-PG 2018 shall be done on the basis of marks obtained in the MBBS professional exams. This is unlike previous NEET-PG and AIPGMEE where only date of birth was utilized as a tie-breaking criteria. Due to candidates making incorrect MBBS marks entries in the online application form and in order to ensure that the tie-breaking is accurate, NBE has given a onetime final opportunity to all the applicant candidates to make corrections in their MBBS marks through the online portal and submit their scanned MBBS Professional mark sheets as a proof of the same for the purpose of verification by NBE. Tie-breaking and generation of the merit list shall be done thereafter in accordance with the criteria mentioned in the Information Bulletin. As per NBE Public Notice dated 29/01/2018 which is also available at NEET-PG website www.nbe.edu.in, the merit list shall be declared by 15/02/2018. NBE shall also publish the number of questions attempted correctly and incorrectly by the candidates at the time of declaration of the merit list. (Click here)
