Indore: Can a student secure 31 or 32 marks out of 30. Yes, if the person is enrolled in Sri Aurobindo Institute of Medical Sciences (SAIMS). In a major goof up three MBBS prefinal year students have been allotted more than the maximum marks in practical by Madhya Pradesh Medical Science University (MPMSU).

As the goof up came to light, varsity officials shifted the blame to college administration for sending wrong marks. As per reports, three MBBS pre-final year students of SAIMS have secured 31 and 32 marks out of 30 in ophthalmology practical exam.

“Students Amrita Gupta and Snigdha Sharma secured 32 marks out of 30 in practical exam,” sources said. One more student has got 31 marks in the same exam. Surprised over the numbers allocated to the three students, the college has lodged a complaint with the university. Screenshots of the marksheets were sent to the registrar and vice-chancellor of the university by students and college administration alike.

Meanwhile, Registrar of MPMSU Pushpendra Singh Baghel said, “We have come to know about the goof up in allocation of marks to students of SAIMS. We have found that wrong marks were sent by the college. University is not at fault. The marks were uploaded by data entry operators of the varsity.” He said that the university has prepared a corrigendum for the same and it will be issued in a day or two. Despite repeated attempts no college authority could be contacted for their version.


Not a single student from government medical colleges made it to the top 10 list as result of pre-final exams was declared by the university on Sunday. A professor of MGM Medical College, on condition of anonymity, alleged, “We are surprised that no student of our college made it into the top list. In the last few years, the university seems to be favouring students of private medical colleges. The goof up in marking indicates that students of private colleges are getting more than the maximum marks in practical exam.”
