The tests for admission into medical colleges and dental colleges will be held on October 6 and November 10 respectively.
The decision was taken at a meeting on the admission into MBBS and BDS courses under the academic year of 2017-2018 held on Wednesday with Health and Family Welfare Minister Mohammad Nasim in the chair, reports UNB.
The minister asked the authorities concerned to keep the medical coaching centres shut from September 1. He also asked for taking the help of the law enforcement agencies, if needed.
Besides, the intelligence teams will keep surveillance on the coaching centres, he said.
The government will take strong steps to prevent the leakage of question paper and distribution of fake question papers to the admission seekers, Nasim said.
