Health and Family Welfare Minister Mohammed Nasim on Monday asked the authorities concerned to close all medical coaching centres from September 1 ahead of Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) and Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) admission test for 2018-2019 sessions.
Nasim gave the directives to the health directorate to arrange a fair admission test with transparency, said a press release.
He urged the medical admission seekers and their guardians not to pay any heed to any rumour of question paper leakage and to lodge complaint to the law enforcers if they get any allegation of question paper leakage.
“Stern action will be taken if anyone involves with question paper leakage and use social media to spread it,” he said.
“There is no chance of question paper leak. Besides, the exam papers will be evaluated through computerised system. So, there is no chance of irregularities in the admission process,” Nasim said.
The minister said the law enforcers will remain alert to foil any unfair means in the admission test.
The admission test for MBBS course for academic session 2018-19 will be held on October 5 and BDS on November 9.
