THE TAMIL NADU Dr. MGR MEDICAL UNIVERISTY, CHENNAI
MEDICAL PG EXAMINATIONS RESCHEDULED
The examination process involves several measures including printing of answer scripts, movement and transport of answer scripts, checking and printing of question papers and steps taken during the conduct of written and practical examinations, like invigilation, CCTV operations, paper distribution, patient examination and others. Movement of examiners from and to the examination centres also will have to be considered. The post-conduct activities will involve transport of completed answer-scripts and evaluation procedures.
All the aforementioned measures and steps may involve physical contact, transport and density of those involved in the field.
In addition, most of the hospitals across the State of Tamil Nadu (both Govt. and private sectors) are involved in COVID Management. The resurgent COVID wave requires focussed involvement of the health sector.
This is an emergency situation where all other routine and regular activities may be rescheduled in an effort to save lives.
Keeping in mind the current situation and its load on the health systems of the entire State, the Tamil Nadu Dr. MGR Medical University has decided (after detailed discussion with all those concerned) to reschedule the Medical Post-graduate Degree/Diploma examinations which have originally been scheduled to commence on 17.05.2021.
This University also wishes to offer its wholehearted support and co-operation to all the COVID warriors.
The rescheduled dates will be announced later.
