The medical aspirants have to reach the examination centre on or before 1:30 pm. It would be appropriate to do a recce of the examination centre to confirm the location, distance etc to avoid any problem of reaching late.Only those candidates who will wear “cultural/ customary dress at the examination centre, they should report at least an hour before the last reporting time i.e.12.30 noon”.
