6) Suppose a candidate has chosen Surgical Gastroenterology and Urology during the online application for NEET-SS 2018. Part A for both these papers will be same as these super specialties have the same feeder broad specialty qualification i.e General Surgery. Such a candidate will be taking the exam in the following sequence:


However, as part A2 being similar to Part A1, part A2 of the second paper will not display any questions and the computer screen will remain blank for a period of 45 minutes which is allocated to Part A2. It is hereby clarified that the marks obtained by such candidate in Part A1 will be utilized for generating the merit list for both the super specialty courses that the candidate has chosen.


7) Candidates opting for only one super specialty or eligible for a single super specialty are not allowed to leave the examination hall till the competition of the entire exam or 5:30 PM whichever is earlier.
