MUHS Says Final Year MBBS Exams Will Be Held in the Offline Format Starting March 8

Even after parents and students approached the Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS) requesting online examinations for final-year MBBS students, the MUHS has said that it will carry on with the in-person or offline examinations on March 8. The university said that the parents’ request for an online exam was unfeasible. 

The concern on the part of parents and students comes as many colleagues have tested positive for COVID-19 over the past few weeks. 

The university has said that asymptomatic students can write their examinations in a separate room in isolation at the dedicated examination centre.

Mumbai is currently experiencing a new spike in cases which experts believe is fuelled by the resumption of suburban local trains. Meanwhile, vaccinations are being conducted in full swing across the city with the BMC readying all civic hospitals to vaccinate as many people as possible. 

Seniors over the age of 60 and those aged above 45 with comorbidities are eligible to receive the vaccine shot from their local centres since March 1. On-site registrations are also provided at some centres to make it easier for seniors to get inoculated. Citizens can reach out to the BMC via the toll-free number 1916 for further details.
