National Board of Examinations today notified 19th convocation in major newspapers, to be conducted on 24th of September 2018. This convocation is going to be after a gap of 4 long years after 2014. However as per sources only gold medalists are invited to attend the convocation this time and rest of the candidates will be receiving their degrees through speed post contrary to the earlier NBE convocations when all passed out candidates were invited.
Earlier NBE have sent e mail invitations to all gold medalists of Board specialty, Super specialty and FNB in last few days. And today NBE have notified officially to the major English newspapers of India. However there is no notification on NBE website yet and NBE convocation website is out of order as of now (Click here).
As per the information bulletin of the national board of examinations all qualified candidates will have to pay the enrollment fees and they will get degrees in the convocation. Depriving all such candidates of the right of convocation and charging them full fees of convocation and declaring them in absentia is highly unethical and unprofessional of the board.
