First-year of MBBS 2021-22 batch to be completed in 11 instead of 13 months: NMC

The National Medical Commission (NMC) has announced that the academic calendar for the current batch of undergraduate medical students (2021-22) will be three months shorter due to the delay in admissions this year.

According to NMC’s announcement on its official website – – the academic session for MBBS will begin on February 14 and end in June 2027, including the mandatory internship.

NMC has made it clear that, despite the delay in admission this year, “the academic curriculum for undergraduate courses must be completed within the allotted time as prescribed by regulations,” the official notice said.

To ensure that the quantity and quality of the curriculum is not compromised, NMC has decided that the foundation courses will be taught outside normal class hours, or on weekends and public holidays. “The basic course is taught after normal class hours or on weekends/holidays. For example, the first professional (year) is compressed to eleven months instead of thirteen. The holidays for the first, second and third professions have also been shortened by one month. That is why each professional training phase has been shortened by only one month,” the NMC notification reads.

This change was caused by the delay in shooting this year. The NEET-UG 2021 exams were supposed to be held in May 2021, but ended up taking place in September. After that, on February 1, the first round of seat allocation in the state was announced by the State Common Admission Testing Unit (CET).
