Participate in MECEE BL 2025 Even Without 12th Grade Results

The Medical Education Commission (MEC) has announced that students who have participated in the 12th-grade exams can now participate in the Medical Education Common Entrance Examination for Bachelor Level Programs, abbreviated as MECEE BL (MBBS, BDS, BSc Nursing, BASLP, B.Perfusion Technology, BAMS, BNS, BSc MLT, BSc MIT, B.Pharm, B.Optometry, BPT, and BPH). This marks a significant change from the previous requirement, which mandated that students must have completed their 12th-grade exams to be eligible for the medical entrance test.

Application Process and Eligibility

Applications for the MECEE BL are now open. Students who appeared for their 12th-grade exams in the last Baisakh can apply using their exam admit cards. This new arrangement aims to streamline the process and make it more convenient for regular students.

Special Arrangements for Regular Students

Prof. Dr. Anjani Kumar Jha, Executive Vice President of MEC, highlighted that special arrangements have been made to accommodate regular students. Due to delays in 12th-grade exam results, students often had to wait to participate in the integrated entrance examination. This year, even if the results are not yet released, students can still take the exam.

Requirements for Medical Education Courses

To be eligible for various undergraduate medical courses such as MBBS, BDS, BSc Nursing, and Pharmacy, students must have studied physics, chemistry, and biology in their 12th grade. They must have passed these subjects with at least 50% or a 2.4 GPA.

Exam Dates and Schedule

The integrated entrance examination for undergraduate medical courses is scheduled from 2081 Bhadra 1 to 2081 Bhadra 5 (August 17, 2024, to August 21, 2024). This new timeline ensures that students can proceed with their medical education without unnecessary delays.

Key Points:

  • New Eligibility: Students who passed the 12th-grade exams can now apply for the medical entrance exam.
  • Application Open: Applications for the integrated entrance exam are open from Wednesday.
  • Special Arrangements: Regular students can participate in the entrance exam even if 12th-grade results are delayed.
  • Course Requirements: Must have studied physics, chemistry, and biology with at least 50% or 2.4 GPA.
  • Exam Schedule: The entrance exam is set for August 17-21, 2024.

By allowing students to participate in the MECEE BL before the release of their 12th-grade results, the MEC is making significant strides in reducing wait times and facilitating a smoother transition into medical education. This initiative underscores the commission's commitment to providing accessible and timely opportunities for aspiring medical students.
