In a few days from now, the NEET PG Results 2019 will be declared. All the efforts that you put in the exam preparation shall be realized in terms of the rank that you get on the NEET PG result day. There are possibilities that sometimes your result may not be as you expected or otherwise. But in both the cases you need to plan for your future. Remember there is no going back now. You have already stepped on this path and the future will be based on how you move forward from here on.Whatever your result is, we are here to guide you as to how you can plan further progress based on the result outcome. Let us make some assumptions on your behalf as to how your NEET PG results may show up.
Let us start with a positive thought of you qualifying in NEET PG exam.
Let’s assume that you have a good rank in NEET PG 2019. Getting higher ranks is also troublesome at times as it opens wide choices of opportunities to choose from that leaves you confused sometimes. It is a critical decision and needs to be taken sensibly. However, the choice of specialization and the college that you choose will entirely depend on your NEET PG rank.
Assuming you get marks good enough to secure you the preferred PG medical specialization of your choice but at a lesser ranked college through the All India level. We suggest you to either choose a PG medical specialization which allows you to select the best college at those marks provided this specialization is also among your preferred choices or you even opt for a college at the State level counselling without compromising on the specialization. This is because the State level cutoffs are slightly lower than the All India level.
In a case where you are uncertain about the choice of specialization, we suggest to go by the list of PG medical specializations as per the previous year’s cutoff. We have given the list of preferred PG medical specializations based on their demand in previous article.
While choosing a PG medical specialization, it is important that the candidate keeps his personal interest and circumstances in mind. We suggest a PG medical specialization with a higher scope and a college where that particular specialization has a better practice.
It is always advisable to choose seats through All India quota as first preference and then the State quota in order to better your growth prospects. B-category or Paid category seats should be opted only when either your marks don’t support A-category seats or you are not getting your preferred PG medical specialization or college even with higher rank secured.
After declaration of NEET PG result, taking up a PG diploma course should be among your least preferences even if you are able to get a good specialization. We suggest you to prefer DNB course over PG diploma course given the scope of DNB in current day scenario and with government recognizing DNB as a full-fledged/equivalent to PG degree courses.
In the situation where your marks are not good enough to get you a degree seat under government merit quota, you need not lose your heart. You can still opt for a PG diploma course instead of losing a year. Passing PG diploma exam is relatively easier and makes you competitive at work with increased growth prospects. The reason we recommend to do PG diploma course after declaration of NEET PG results is because the NEET PG exam regulations keep changing almost every year and it is not certain that if you have qualified exam this year, you may do the same next year until and unless you are very confident about yourself.
These are our recommendations for various scenarios that you might face after declaration to NEET PG results. We have shown you different paths, but you have to decide which path is the most appropriate one to follow. So make a wise decision and embark on the most important journey of your life towards a brighter future.
In the worst case scenario when you have not been able to qualify in NEET PG 2019 exam even after putting in all the efforts, don’t get yourself into a negative state of mind. Dropping a year should be your last thought. We suggest you to explore various other better options that are still open for you.
We advise you to apply for other PG medical entrance exams in India viz. AIIMS PG and JIPMER PG that are conducted twice in a year (Jan & July). The application process for July session generally starts in the last week of February giving you enough time to decide.
It is also advisable to apply for International Universities recognized by the Medical Council of India which conduct their own entrance exams for selection of candidates to their PG medical courses.
In case if you take up any of the above options and are still unable to get through then don’t get demoralized. You should give yourself a second chance and attempt for NEET PG again in the next year with better preparation.
