General Consensus:

A common consensus on relevant issues related to the syllabus was generated with brainstorming and regular discussions as per the above-mentioned process involving all stakeholders related to the training of undergraduate academic programs.

  • Experts agreed to develop the syllabus for four groups representing all the undergraduate programs:
    1. MBBS/BDS/BSc Nursing/BASLP/ B Perfusion Technology
    2. BAMS/BSc MLT/BSc MIT/BPT/BPharm/B Optometry
    3. BPH (Bachelor in Public Health)
    4. BNS (Bachelor in Nursing Science)
  • A consensus was generated to have an entrance test paper with 200 multiple-choice questions to improve content coverage as well as to match with the recent practice. This will also help the differentiation of the candidates by minimizing the tie in the marks among the candidates.
  • Multiple choice questions (MCQs) will be of Single Best Response Type (Type A) with four options.
  • Adopt Criterion-Referenced Test with a 50% pass mark with no negative marking.

  • All agreed to include 20 MCQs from the Mental Agility Test for all the academic programs.
  • For the programs with eligibility also from PCL in Health Sciences, a consensus was generated to include 20 MCQs related to the specific subject as per the respective PCL programs.
  • The difficulty level of the items should be set from the time of item preparation as:
    1. Recall: 30%
    2. Understanding: 50%
    3. Application and above : 20%
