“The result of NEET-MDS 2023 was declared on 10th March 2023. In accordance with the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Govt. of India letter No. V. 12025/14/2023-DE dated 21st September 2023, the minimum qualifying percentiles have been lowered [in pursuance of the 2nd Proviso in clause 7 (1) of DCI’s Master of Dental Surgery Course (1st Amendment) Regulations, 2018] for NEET-MDS 2023,” read the official notice by NBEMS.
The NEET MDS 2023 examination initially scheduled for January 8 was later conducted on March 1 in a computer-based test (CBT) mode. It served as the gateway for students aspiring to pursue Master of Dental Surgery (MDS) programs for the 2023-24 admission session.
This year, a total of 76 examination centers were established across the country to facilitate the NEET MDS 2023 examination. This postgraduate entrance exam comprises two parts: Part A with 100 questions and Part B with 140 questions.
For aspiring students, there are approximately 6,200 seats available, divided equally between 50% All India Quota (AIQ) seats and 50% state quota seats. This revision in the qualifying cut-off criteria provides a fairer chance for students from various backgrounds to pursue their dream of mastering dental surgery.
