At the end of the meeting, Professor. Abu Yusuf Fakir told The Asian Tribune that the medical admission test would be held in the first week of April. Besides, it has been decided to conduct an admission test as per the previous rules.
According to meeting sources, after the meeting started, a member of the examination organizing committee raised the issue of organizing admission tests in a short syllabus. However, most members voted against it. As a result, it was decided to take the admission test in the entire syllabus as per the previous rules.
In this context, Prof. Abu Yusuf Fakir said that the issue of a short syllabus was raised in the meeting. But no one agrees with that. Therefore, the admission test for the 2021-22 academic year will be held in light of the complete syllabus. The admission test will not be in a short syllabus.
Incidentally, in the Corona epidemic, on April 2 last year, medical admission tests were held simultaneously across the country in the 2020-21 academic year. 1 lakh 22 thousand 874 people applied to participate in the admission test against 4 thousand 350 seats in 37 government medical centers. More than 1 lakh 16 thousand students were present in the examination. The results were released on April 4, one day after the admission test. 46 thousand 975 people passed it.
