 Kochi: It's a cascade of problems awaiting the just-graduated doctors attempting DNB CET and All India Post Graduate Medical Entrance Examination (AIPGMEE) – 2015. Most of the candidates are frustrated from the clash of exam dates after the rescheduling and deferment of DNB CET scheduled from November 27 to 29, apart from technical glitches faced at the exam centres.The DNB CET scheduled on November 29 at some centres has been deferred and rescheduled to December 6. Ironically, the last exam of All India Post Graduate Medical Entrance Examination (AIPGMEE) – 2015 for the admission to various MD, MS and diploma courses also falls on the same date. Many students will now face a clash of dates due to this. AIPGMEE is scheduled from December 1 to 6.

Many students, who reached the exam centre to appear for DNB CET, were turned away by the authorities citing technical glitches. However, the National Board of Examination, which conducts these tests, has rescheduled the test only for some centres. The students of rest of the centres are in a dilemma as they are yet to get any official intimation about the rescheduling of the exam.It may be noted that the AIPGMEE exams scheduled on December 1 and 2 have also been postponed citing unavoidable technical reasons. According to officials, individual communication is being sent to all the candidates whose test has been deferred.

Test for all these candidates will be conducted by NBE before December 20, 2014, according to official communication. However, it has been clearly mentioned that there will not be any deferment or rescheduling of AIPGMEE test on December 3 to 6 though DNB CET for some centres has been rescheduled to December 6.Prometric is conducting these exams for NBE and technical glitches have always been a problem for the candidates right from the registration procedures. However, there has been no effective measure taken to solve the issue.
