Anxiety or stress is something you go through during the exam. The constant postponement and delay have put the candidates in a tough spot. The main reason for stress of the aspirants is that NEET PG 2020 was taken late. The counselling of the NEET PG 2020 was done till last week of September. So, the students got less time for studying and they were also burdened with the pressure of the pandemic. The aspirants who give NEET PG work somewhere either as interns or juniors. The preparation time students have got was also less. The reason behind the mental pressure of the students is job pressure, pandemic and delay in the examination but the positive thing is that the aspirants have got extra three months for their preparation. The delay in the date is impacting those students who will cross their MBBS in 2020. As per the government, the last date for completing the internship is 30th June, 2021 which will not be possible for some students. As the final exams are not conducted by some colleges, this has created a lot of confusion and chaos among the aspirants.
