The All India Institute of Medical Sciences, AIIMS, which will conduct Postgraduate, PG exams from June 11, 2020, has announced that candidates having no record of Corona infection–who never came in contact with such patients, would be allowed to sit in the exam. Those doctors and nurses who are involved in treating COVID-19 patients as frontline warriors, won’t be allowed to appear for the exam this year, the Institute said.
AIIMS conducts exams for post-graduate nursing, MD, MS, DM and MCH courses every year. This time, the exam would be held at 150 centres across the country.
As per the Institute directive, asymptomatic candidates will also not allowed to appear in the exam.
A NDTV report states, candidates need to sign a declaration on their admit cards stating that they never came in contact with Corona patients and if the information furnished by them proves wrong, they would be held legally liable.
“Only asymptomatic people with no history of contact with a COVID positive case can appear,” read the rules released by the institute.
The decision by the institute to hold the PG entrance examinations on June 11 was notified on June 1. Admit cards were issued on June 6, 2020.
