Baba Farid University of Health Sciences (BFUHS), Faridkot, on Wednesday announced the extension of the last date for admission to MBBS and BDS courses in all colleges for the academic session 2020-21 up to January 15.
The medical university has extended the last date of joining seats in provisionally allotted colleges during the mop-up round from December 30 to 31.
The stray vacancy round, which was scheduled to be held on December 31, was also postponed by the university.
“The detailed schedule for stray vacancy round will be declared on the website later,” Dr Ruhee Dugg, the university registrar, said.
The new academic session will start in February.
The National Medical Commission allowed the extension after getting a nod from the Supreme Court. Earlier, the NMC had filed an application in the apex court, seeking an extension as the time schedule prescribed in the commission’s regulation could not be followed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
