To start with, final-year undergraduate students of different streams like allopathy, dental, homeopathy, nursing, unani, ayurved, etc. will appear for the exams. Later, the varsity will announce the exam dates for other years. State governor and chancellor of the varsity Bhagat Singh Koshyari had given his nod to the university to hold the summer exams after state medical education minister Amit Deshmukh met him recently at Raj Bhawan.
Varsity vice-chancellor Deelip Mhaisekar has worked overtime to prepare the exam blueprint with various stakeholders after the varsity announced cancellation of all health science exams in May due to coronavirus outbreak. He also co-ordinated with the central medical councils on the issue.
Varsity’s controller of examination Ajit Pathak said, “The reason why the university is starting with final-year exams is that after these students pass out, they can start internships at different hospitals and serve as Covid warriors.”
