Good news for RGUHS’ dental surgery students

The Rajiv Gandhi University of Health and Sciences (RGUHS) has postponed the Bachelor of Dental Surgery exams to September, a move that comes as a big relief to the many students who wanted the exam to be postponed due to lack of time for preparation.

The exams were originally slated for August, but many students complained that they were unable to prepare due to lack of time and a disruptive education due to covid. They also said that the online classes carried out were ineffective while there was no clinical exposure as well.

RGUHS sent out a circular on Monday about the revised timetable. The exams would begin on September 1 while the practice exams are scheduled from September 19.

Sanjay Raj, Secretary, National Students’ Union of India (Karnataka) said, “On Friday July 22, we met the Registrar (Evaluation) of RGUHS along with BDS students and discussed regarding the postponement of the examinations and on Monday, RHUHS issued the circular of postponing the exams. We are thankful to the vice-chancellor and registrar (evaluation) of RGUHS for understanding the difficulties and grievances of BDS Students and postponing the examinations. “

‘No time to prepare, syllabus unfinished’

A online survey was carried out by the AIDSO group on the postponement of exams. Out of the 1,250 students in the state, 917 signed the Google forms and responded to the survey.

One of the students added that the extra time would help immensely. “Since it is a month, we will get more time or prepare for the exams. We had a very short time to prepare for exams with the exams dated in August. There were time constraints and even the syllabus was not completed. Now, we have ample amount of time to prepare for theory and practical. “
