NEW DELHI: The All India Democratic Student Organisation (AIDSO) has requested the Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) to allow the NEET 2023 aspirants to upgrade from the second round to the third round of Post Graduate Entrance Test (PGET) 2023.

The organisation has also requested to delay the results till all India NEET PG round 3 seat-allotted candidates report to the respective colleges. Such candidates will be filtered out of KEA counselling and then the results of KEA PGET 2023 round 2 will be published.

According to the organisation, the MCC round 3 and PGET round 2 counselling 2023 dates are coinciding with each other, seats that become vacant in the state counselling due to the shifting of candidates to the central counselling would directly go to the mop-up or third round of PGET counselling 2023.

“ Students with better merit and ranks would not have a chance at those seats as they are forced to take up the seat at the end of round 2 itself. Hence upgradation to round 3 gives all students a better chance at getting the best college and course for them and does justice to their ranks/score obtained in the NEET 2023 examination” an official notice from AIDSO read.

As per the student's body, delaying the round 2 PGET results till the last date of MCC NEET PG round 3 counselling will result in weeding out candidates that have been allotted in the NEET PG and choose to leave the KEA counselling, the seats which remain vacant after that would be processed for the Karnataka state candidates.

AIDSO further said, “ This will affect 1000 and more students across the state. It is essential to ensure that all aspirants have an equitable chance of securing admissions based on their true potential and capabilities. This proposal must be considered with utmost diligence keeping in mind the aspirations and dreams of countless NEET 2023 candidates.”
