There is two computer laboratory (for 15 students at a period) with full access of internet, library with study section, audiovisual room for practical of anatomy and physiology. 

Programme Regulation


SEE with GPA at least 2.0 and grade C in English, Math and Science. OR

School Leaving Certificate (SLC) or Equivalent Certificate with English, Science and Math  OR

SEE or SLC or equivlent degree and TSLC with 66.67 percent from CTEVT or 68.33 percent from TU are eligible to apply.Admission is based on merit list of entrance examination conducted by CTEVT. 


It is beneficial to a student to be attending 100% in all subjects. However, under unavoidable conditions the students must have not less than 80% attendance in the theory classes and 90% attendance in practical classes to be eligible for the internal and external examinations.

  3. Illicit drug use, bearing arms on campus, threats or assaults to peers, faculty or staff will result in immediate suspension.

Evaluation Scheme

  1. In all courses, the students must achieve at 40% minimum in theory, and 60% minimum in practical before proceeding to the next level of instruction.
  2. A minimum of three internal examinations will be given for each course. In order to sit for the external exam in any course, a student must achieve (in aggregate) a passing mark for the internal examinations.
