SHARES

Amidst the second wave of the coronavirus and the subsequent lockdown, several examinations have been either postponed or cancelled. In view of the situation, the MBBS examinations will now be conducted in the month of June.

Meanwhile, Medical Education Minister Amit Deshmukh confirmed the same. He further stated that as a result of the pandemic, the students were facing many difficulties in getting to and from the examination centre. In addition, many students have been infected with COVID-19 as well leading to the decision of postponing the examinations to June. On the other hand, about 450 trainee doctors from various government medical colleges in the state and 350 of their contacts have been infected with COVID-19 in the recent past. Therefore, the decision to postpone the examinations till June is touted to safeguard the students till the number of cases comes down. 

Earlier, on April 15, Maharashtra University of Health Sciences conducted examinations for medical students from April 19. After discussions with the Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, the decision was made to hold the examinations in June.

According to reports, about 50,000 students will appear for the exam. Given this number, the possibility of the spread of the coronavirus at present cannot be ruled out. Moreover, in the past, there was a demand from the students that this examination should be postponed.
