Now, cut-off %age lowered for BDS

Faridkot, September 8

To fill the 507 vacant BDS seats in 12 private dental colleges of the state, Baba Farid University of Health Sciences (BFUHS) on Sunday lowered the cut-off percentile or qualifying marks for admission.

The qualifying percentile for general category candidates has been lowered from 50 to 40. For the SC/ST/OBC candidates and persons with locomotory disability of lower limbs, this qualifying percentile has been lowered from 40 to 30 and 45 to 35, respectively.

Dr Raj Bahadur, Vice Chancellor of BFUHS, said the qualifying percentile has been lowered as per the directions of the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. In consultation with the Dental Council of India (DCI), the ministry had lowered the qualifying cut-off percentile for admission to BDS course by 10 percentile for each category, said the VC.

Out of the total 1,110 BDS seats in 12 private dental colleges in the state, 507 seats were declared vacant on Saturday evening, the last day to complete counselling-cum-admission for MBBS and BDS seats in the state.

Despite many dental colleges offering huge waiver in the tuition fee on Saturday to woo students in BDS course, a large number of seats remained vacant as a number of candidates in various categories failed to secure minimum qualifying marks for admission.

Now, after the qualifying cut off being lowered by 10 percentile, it is likely that in the fresh round of counselling, more candidates will participate, who were hitherto considered ineligible.

Huge vacancy

The qualifying percentile for general category has been lowered from 50 to 40. For SC/ST/OBC and persons with disability, the same has been lowered from 40 to 30 and 45 to 35.
