Sixth spherical to fill 494 BDS seats attracts clean
Faridkot, Could 14
For the primary time ever, not even a single scholar appeared earlier than the counselling committee that had organised a walk-in session to fill 494 vacant BDS seats in 10 dental faculties right here as we speak. This counselling was held by Baba Farid College of Well being Sciences (BFUHS) right here.
Why zero turnout
As an alternative of choosing BDS, most college students wish to have one other go at MBBS by showing in NEET-UG-2022, slated for July 17
A lot to the shock of the committee members, not even a single scholar appeared for the BDS course being supplied to these with marks as little as 138 (basic class) out of whole 720 in NEET-UG-2021 take a look at. For SC/ST and OBC classes, the cut-off is 108 marks. This was the sixth spherical of counselling to fill 494 vacant seats out of 1,000 in faculties throughout the state.
The rationale for such a excessive variety of seats going vacant is being attributed to the inordinate delay in conducting NEET-UG-2021 for MBBS and BDS programs because of the Covid pandemic.
Typically, the admission course of for these programs is accomplished by September 30, however the course of for NEET-UG-2021 had been delayed by over seven months.
So, as an alternative of choosing the BDS course, most college students wish to have one other go on the MBBS course by showing in NEET-UG-2022, slated for July 17, mentioned sources within the BFUHS. Even the admissions for MS/MD had been delayed by about 12 months with the method for NEET-PG-2021 being accomplished on Could 6, 2022, as an alternative of Could 31, 2021.
