The MBBS and BDS admission tests will be held on 5 March and 2 April respectively in person.
Dr AKM Ahsan Habib, member secretary of the MBBS and BDS admission test committee and director of the Directorate of Health Education, confirmed the matter.
He said the decision was made at a recent meeting with the health minister in the chair.
Habib also said there was no chance to change the dates even if the coronavirus situation improved.
The Directorate of Health Education had sent letters to the University Grants Commission, the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology, and Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, requesting them to keep their exam venues free.
Last year, the MBBS admission test was held across the country on 1 October. Some 69,405 prospective medical students took the test against 10,404 seats.
Of them, 49,413 passed the test, including 26,531 males and 22,882 females.
There are 4,068 seats in 36 government medical colleges, and 6,339 seats in 70 private medical colleges in the country.
This year, the number of prospective medical students may increase further as there will be no Higher Secondary Certificate examinations. All 13 lakh examinees will receive certificates without exams.
Their results will be determined based on their Junior School Certificate and Secondary School Certificate scores, and will be published in December.
