All candidates should not be given equal marks for invalid questions
6 Sep 2016

CHANDIGARH: A counsel for the petitioners in the Punjab PreMedical Entrance Test (PMET16) case GS Bal argued in the high court on Monday that all candidates should not be given equal marks for the questions, which were declared invalid. He argued that such a move would benefit even those who had not attempted these questions.

He was appearing for a petitioner, who had alleged that 11 questions were wrong in Set-II of the examination. The hearing would continue on Tuesday.

The arguments are in the final stage as counsel for Baba Farid University of Health Sciences (BFUHS), Faridkot, as well as those appearing for petitioners have completed their arguments. After conclusion of this round of arguments, the court would either reserve the judgment or pronounce it instantly.

The exam, conducted on June 10, was challenged on July 4. The petitioners have sought quashing of the exam stating that it was declared on the basis of percentile in contravention to the provisions stated in the prospectus. Some of the petitioners have also sought the re-conduct of the exam. It was alleged that 110 questions were wrong.

The BFUHS, on the other hand, said that the exam was held in two shifts, thus it was inevitable to prepare the result on the percentile basis to normalise the difficulty level. The government on specific queries from the high court had submitted that on each and every step, the university had taken due permission for changes.
