Medical and Dental students of MUS started this petition to Medical University of Sofia

Exam period is meant to start on Jan 26th for the dental faculty of MUS and on the 12th of January for medical students. As we are approaching the date we see no improvements regarding the covid19 pandemic in Bulgaria and in Sofia specifically. The amount of new cases daily is extremely high and most students consider it reckless to perform exams like normal. 

Many parents have also expressed they will not send their children back to university as long as the situation is this bad. As some of the students may belong to at risk groups they consider coming back for exams very dangerous and unnecessary. It is after all a worldwide emergency, a pandemic and we as a medical university should act as role models and put the health of the students first.

Given that we are an international body of students, many of us would have to travel to get to university for exams and that would add to the risk. Many could face problems getting in the country due to the restrictions related to the pandemic.

It is an unfortunate situation however it can be resolved and all danger and problems can be avoided by taking the exams online. We urge the university to take action and protext its students. Time is sufficient to organize online exams, many other universities in Bulgaria and abroad have already done so successfully. We believe MUS wants what is best for us, both for our education and our health.
