New Delhi | Jagran Education Desk: A circular is doing rounds on social media platforms claiming that the NEET PG 2022 exam has been postponed to July 9. However, the National Board of Examinations (NBE) termed the letter as fake and clarified that the NEET PG 2022 exam will be conducted as per schedule, i.e. May 21.
"It has come to the notice of NBEMS that some unscrupulous elements are circulating false and bogus information using spoofed notices in the name of NBEMS," read a statement issued by NBE.
"All NBEMS notices issued July 2020 onwards bear a QR code. Scanning the QR code will redirect the user to the said notice on the NBEMS website," it added.
