will the neet pg/mds cut off be reduced twice a year ...? has it ever happened before ...?
The cut offs are usually reduced when the no.of Candidates qualified for the first time are lesser than the no.of unfilled or vacant seats. I 2019 as well, DCI reduced the cut offs just like in the previous years. But there has been no mention of the cut offs being reduced twice in the same year. This year as well for NEET MDS 2020, the cut offs have been reduced by 18.935 percentage which is approximately 66 marks across all Categories. Now the new Cut offs are as follows:
General PWD: 26.065
And the revised marks are as follows:
General PWD: 204
It doesn't look like the cut offs will be further reduced. Nevertheless, please follow the official website for more information. You can also refer our article for more information: https://medicine.careers360.com/articles/neet-mds-cut-off
Hi, I am from kerala and i got allotted in the 2nd round of counselling for DNB ENT in Secundrabad and i if i rejects and continue for 3rd round will i get Paediatric or ENT in the 3rd round in kerala or some other near states?
Since you have not given us your rank in your NEET UG we will assume you have done fairly to be allotted a DNB ENT seat in the second round of counseling. With MD Pediatrics in the 3rd round will be difficult but there is slight chance in ENT. DNB may feel like you are doing a doing a lesser program but gathering knowledge is the same for both. Your keenness to learn will be rather defining in both, also find out if the college in Secundrabad has a high patient volume – this is most important when it comes to learning.
What MCI says about MS ENT : The purpose of MS ENT is to standardize Otorhinolaryngology teaching at Post Graduate level throughout the country so that it will benefit in achieving uniformity in undergraduate teaching as well and resultantly creating competent ENT Surgeons with appropriate expertise.
What MCI says about DNB ENT: Practice the specialty of Otorhinolaryngology ethically keeping in mind the requirement of the patient, his community and people at large. Demonstrate sufficient understanding of basic sciences related to Otorhinolaryngology and be able to integrate such knowledge in his Clinical practice. Diagnose and manage majority of conditions in Otorhinolaryngology
So MS is about treating and surgery and DNB is about treating only. Now if surgery is important for you then you need to take a chance, if not DNB and later think about MCh if needed.
NB – If you ever intend to take up teaching then MS or MD is needed.

NEET PG COLLEGE PREDICTOR-https://medicine.careers360.com/neet-pg-college-predictor
will there be neet pg in 2022 or not
MCI which stands for Medical Council of India has been replaced by NMC which stands for National Medical Council. And NMC did propose scrapping of NEET PG in gavour of a more friendly approach called NEXT. In this, Candidates will be considered for PG admissions based on the marks scored in their Graduation instead of an Entrance examination. And NMC has decided to allot 3 years to come up with the guidelines and implement it. This was proposed in 2019 and so we do not know whether it would be implemented in 2022 or not. We need to wait for official information regarding this.
