#PGIMER Entrance Exam

PGIMER Answer Key 2020 – Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) Chandigarh is unlikely to release PGIMER 2020 answer key. The offline entrance exam will be conducted on November 24, 2019, for the January session. As per the norm, the exam conducting authority will release the result of PGIMER 2020 the very next day, or within 24 hours of the conclusion of the exam. So, the PGIMER applicant can directly check their results on November 25, 2019 instead of waiting for the answer keys. Considering there is little time between the exam and declaration of result, even coaching institutes don't generally publish PGIMER answer key 2020. In case an answer key of PGIMER 2020 is released by the coaching institutes, it is advisable that the candidates do not rely on it as it may not be a credible source. Generally, the answer key is not published when it is a computer-based test. However, PGIMER 2020 is a pen and paper-based test and yet the answer key of the entrance exam is not released. Also, admission authorities don't allow candidates to take PGIMER answer keys with them. Go through the rest of the article to learn full details of PGIMER answer key 2020.

PGIMER is a national-level entrance exam that is conducted twice every year for admission to MD and MS programmes. The exam is conducted once in January and again in July. PGIMER 2020 January session will be conducted for admission to a total of 223 MD/MS seats offered by PGIMER, Chandigarh.

Candidates must have completed a one-year rotatory internship by December 31, 2019, for the January session.
Each candidate applying for PGIMER 2020 must have a permanent/provisional registration certificate issued by the Medical Council of India.

So, unfortunately you cannot appear for PGIMER 2020.
