MUHS issues Dress code for upcoming MBBS exams

The dress code will be put in action during the winter semester exams, starting November 27.

Nashik: Taking strict action to prevent cheating during examinations at any of its affiliated medical colleges, the Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS) has come out with an inimitable “dress code” for medical students.

The dress code will be put in action during the winter semester exams, starting November 27.

Below is stated list of conditions, as mandated by the Maharashtra University of Health Sciences in its recent official notice:

For male students:

  • Half-sleeve shirt/T-shirt, faint colour shirt and full pant
  • Small buttons for shirt, no permission for design buttons, rings, chain or any ornaments during the examination period.
  • No permission for watch, mobile/cell phone, head phone or any electronic equipment(s)
  • No permission for apron, cap, sun glass, money purse, valet during the examination period.
  • No permission for shoes, use only chappal/slippers

For Female Students:

  • Half-sleeve shirt/T-shirt, faint colour shirt and full pant or sari or salwar kamij.
  • Small buttons for shirt, no permission for design buttons, rings, chain (except mangalsutra) or any ornaments during the examination period.
  • No permission for watch, mobile/cell phone, head phone or any electronic equipment(s)
  • No permission for apron, bangles, rings, pin, chain, neckless /ornaments, hand bags or purse/money purse during the examination period.
  • No permission for shoes, use only chappal/slippers

The circular also adds, “The dress code is a must for all students, including those from religious minority institutions under MUHS’ jurisdiction.”

The code issued by Controller of Examinations, Dr Ajit Pathak is intended to leave no chance of cheating through papers and notes.  Certain clothes have been prohibited and besides, it is clearly specified what to wear during examinations. “The clothes should be simple and designer-wear would be prohibited” added the notice

Many medicos have stated that MUHS’s directive on wearing slippers or chappals instead of shoes would not have much of a bearing on them. The colleges’ authorities have also supported the dress code.

Nilesh Bastewad, former Secretary of Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctors, felt students would not have a problem with the dress code. “But it is better to create awareness among students about the same and take their reactions so that there are no problems during the time of the examination,” he stated while having a conversation with TOI on the recently issued dress code by MUHS.

Ajay Chandanwale, the dean of B J Medical College and Sassoon General Hospital, said, “The notification regarding the dress code has been declared by the MUHS and it will be honoured by the college administration. It will help in reducing conflicts between students and the examiners. Further, if there are any suggestions from students regarding the dress code, those too will be sent to the MUHS for consideration.”

MUHS Registrar Dr K D Chavan told TOI that the decision was taken after a series of brainstorming sessions at various levels for the past three years. “We have followed a certain set of rules applicable for the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET), through which students qualify for medical courses. These rules are widely accepted in academic institutions,” said Dr Chavan.
