Faridkot, July 6

Facing shortage of eligible candidates to fill all 139 MDS seats in 12 dental colleges in the state, the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and Dental Council of India (DCI) have lowered the minimum qualifying marks and percentile for the admission.

As 83 of the total 139 MDS state quota seats remained vacant after the first round of counselling conducted by the Baba Farid University of Health Sciences (BFUHS) last month, the qualifying percentile for the MDS has been lowered from 50 to 31.065 for the general category. For the SC/BC and handicapped candidates, the qualifying percentile has been reduced from 40 to 21.065 and 45 to 26.065, respectively.

The cut-off score for the general category candidates has been reduced from 286 to 220 marks. For the SC/ST and handicapped candidates, the revised cut-off score is 188 and 204 marks, respectively.

The BFUHS on Monday also invited candidates for the second counselling.

Though the result of NEET-MDS was declared on January 15, the admission process is yet to be completed due to the lockdown. —TNS
