Karnataka PGCET 2020: M.Pharm Students Waiting Eagerly for Entrance Exam Dates
Students who want to take admission in M.Pharm course are worried as the officials have not decided the date of entrance examination yet.
Usually, the exams are conducted each year around this time but this year students have not received any notification about the scheduled date.
Karnataka PGCET 2020 has announced the date of entrance examination for other courses like MBA, M.Tech, and MCA which is going to be held on October 13 and 14.
The officials said that they have not received any notification to conduct the exam.
They agreed that they conducted the M.Pharm entrance exam last year but they have not signed any MoU to conduct the examination each year.
Conducting exams is a time taking process so they need to be informed in advance.
However, when the Vice Chancellor of Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences was asked about M.Pharm entrance examination, he said that he has already informed KEA to conduct the examination in a written format.
He further said that since KEA organised the exam last year therefore it was obvious to conduct this year too.
Dr. S Sacchidanand, RGUHS Vice Chancellor said that he will send the notification again and will request the government to conduct the examination as per the scheduled date.
At the same time, students who have filled the application form are getting worried about lagging behind from students of other states and private colleges as they have already announced the dates.
Since the date of examinations are not announced yet, students are unsure about starting the preparation for the exam.
It should be noted that the term end examination of B.Pharm final year students are already completed on October 6, 2020 and as per the UGC guidelines, the new academic year must begin from November 1, 2020.
There are 70 colleges in Karnataka that offer admission for pharmacy courses.
