Adesh University (AU) has decided to conduct a separate medical entrance test for admission to MBBS and BDS courses while Baba Farid University of health sciences (BFUHS ) will conduct a separate joint entrance test to fill all seats in the two courses in all colleges across the state.
AU has already started selling its prospectus for the courses, while BFUHS will do so soon. Adesh University is conducting the on May 25 while BFUHS on May 17.
AU has about 150 seats in the MBBS course. Last year, the all- India pre-medical test was conducted by the Central Board Of Secondary Education (CBSE), but this year, the state has decided to conduct its own pre-medical entrance examination to fill the seats in MBBS and BDS courses across the state.
However, the high court has allowed BFUHS to hold centralised counseling to fill the state quota seats in the state.
