Dental and medical schools are prepared to handle two first-year batches.

Current MBBSBDS students will complete their terminal examinations near the end of February . New batch of candidates is set to enroll in colleges in October after completing NEET counselling .

Mangaluru: When the new batch of candidates will arrive at the campus, the medical colleges in the area will face a rough time, with the current MBBSBDS students still in their first year.The overlapping academic year will force many medical colleges to restructure their teaching schedule hours and, in turn, put a wrench in the community's ability to accommodate students in hostels as well as classes.The current first-year MBBSBDS students will complete their terminal examinations near the end of February.The new batch of applicants is set to enroll in colleges in October after completing NEET counselling.

There are 150 applicants on the list for the job.Each batch of students must have less than 30 students to learn because there is a development model for competency-based medical education (CBME).Because of this, the college has already decided to schedule classes in the morning and afternoon for topics such as anatomy that call for dissection.In addition, it places a strain on curriculum resources, who have to volunteer extra to run the program, he said, adding that the first two months will be a difficult time for medical colleges.

Nevertheless, some colleges have confirmed that they are able to handle the additional batch on their campus.The university is aware of the connections between two batches.We have the facilities to accommodate them.For the upcoming MBBS class, there are classrooms, teaching staff, as well as hostel facilities.

It would be an inconvenience for a long time, according to Dr. Antony Sylvan DSouza, dean of Father Muller Medical College, but the college is able to deal with it.
