Six Medical entrance exams on same day
There is an confusion among Medical aspirants, after six Deemed Universities in the country are conducting their entrance exams on the same day leaving the students with fewer choices.


Six deemed universities in India conducting the medical entrance exam for admissions to MBBS course on same day i.e June 02, 2013.

Top Institute Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research (Jipmer), Puducherry is conducting medical exam on June 2, 2013.

On the same day, universities like, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, St. John's National Academy of Health Sciences, Bangalore, Sri Ramachandra University, Chennai, Padmashree Dr. D.Y. Patil Medical College, Hospital & Research Centre, Pune, and Sri Siddhartha Medical College in Tumkur, Karnataka are conducting MBBS Entrance exams.

The entrance exams are mostly held on Sundays forcing the students to make a difficult choice. G. Padmashree, a class XII student who had applied for the entrance exam to Sri Ramachandra University, said she passed up the University exam for Jipmer. Her friend Aishwarya said she sent a mail to the University requesting that she be permitted to appear for the exam on another date. The university did not reply, however, she said.

A source in a city-based private college said every year the students had to contend with the problem. It is not just medical aspirants but those applying to paramedical courses too face the same problem, he said.

"The colleges/universities plan at least five months in advance and the exams are held in various cities. And the clash of exam dates is inevitable," he said.

Ramesh Dheman, whose daughter will appear for the various medical entrance tests, is already spending sleepless nights due to the clash of different examinations.

"She will definitely miss out on any one of the medical entrance examination, if the authorities don't heed our requests to reschedule one of the examinations. We have petitioned DU authorities and they are planning to constitute a board to look into the matter," Dheman says.
