There is panic among students who wish to join Makerere University medical school after learning that the university administration has canceled the academic year 2020\21 for Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) for failing to implement the regional standard requirements.

In a letter signed by Alfred Masikye Namoah, the university academic registrar revealed that the first year students for 2020\21 academic year have been deferred following guidance from the joint East African medical and dental council.

“The university is making good progress to address the issues and meet the requirements by the council for the next inspection expected in July 2020,” the letter reads in part.

He noted that in the meantime, the university will recall the advert for students who wanted to do BDS and advise them to amend their applications to other choices available.

He guided that those on government sponsorship will be shifted to other choices that they applied for on their application forms if they meet the cut –off points for Makerere University.

When contacted for comment, Dr. Muhammad Kiggundu, the director of communications and public relations said that he still needs time to study letter and be briefed on the matter. He promised to give us a comment next week.
