The MBBS entrance test may be administered on March 10 at government and private medical institutions for the academic year 2022–2023.
Following a meeting on Sunday between the presidents of medical colleges and the Medical Education and Family Welfare Division, the new information was made public.
“The admission test was initially set on March 10 following the announcement of the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and similar examination results,” Prof Dr Md Sharfuddin Ahmed said in a statement to the Dhaka Tribune following the conference.
The results of the HSC test will be released on February 8.
If it is not feasible to arrange the exam at that period, it will be given the following Eid-ul-Azha or in the final week of April.
The official announced that the exact date would be decided during a second meeting with the health minister on Monday.
