Shocked by failure of 25 MBBS final year students in internal and practical examination, Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Medical College administration has decided to review the internal assessment process.In a meeting held on Friday, college administration raised concern over it as dean Dr Jyoti Bindal sought explanation from all the department heads.
Addressing the faculty members, Dr Bindal said, “Meritorious students who topped in entrance exam can get admission in MGM Medical College. What happens in these five years is that students who topped in entrance exam failed in internal assessments even after getting good marks in theory part.”
Dr Bindal directed department heads to review internal assessment system and decided to give internal assessment marks on quarterly basis so that students can improve in subjects they are weak by the time final assessment is carried out. College administration has decided to set accountability of teachers over poor marking and told them to monitor the performance of medicos.
Five MGM Medical College students succeeded in getting place among top 10 students as per list released by Madhya Pradesh Medical Science University.However, 18 college students failed in internal assessment while nine failed in practical examination.Later, Medical University cleared 18 students on the basis of Medical Council of India’s norm of no compulsion for obtaining 50 per cent mark in in ternal assessment.The university has also cleared some of students with grace marks on appeal made by college.
