Mass Failure: 42 MBBS students file petition with KUHS against 2 medical colleges
22 MBBS students from Thiruvananthapuram Medical College failed in General Medicine paper and 20 students failed in Paediatric paper at the Kozhikode Medical College.
Thiruvananthapuram: Following the declaration of their results, the disappointed MBBS students, who failed in their final year examinations, have filed a petition with the Kerala University of Health Sciences (KUHS) petition against two of its affiliated medical colleges alleging foul play in mass failure.
Over 42 students have failed in their final year MBBS examination. As mentioned in a recent report by Deccan Chronicle, 22 MBBS students from Thiruvananthapuram Medical College of the batch 2014 failed in the practical examinations for the General Medicine paper while 20 MBBS students from the same batch at the Kozhikode Medical College failed in the Paediatric paper.
The students from the two medical colleges alleged victimization. Most of the students on the list were those who had earlier complained against a particular faculty member who was later transferred to the other medical college, reports Deccan Chronicle.
Consequently, the aggrieved students have petitioned the Kerala University of Health Sciences alleging foul play in the mass failure.
The Medical dialogues team earlier reported 34 MBBS students of the 2013 batch of Government Medical College, Kozhikode out of the total 200 failed in the final year examination in March 2018. 30 of them failed in the practical exams in General Medicine.
The students had alleged that the mass failure was accounted to irrelevant questions that were asked from the students during the examination which led to a state of confusion and nervousness, resulting in failure. There were allegations that some of the external examiners and a few of their internal counterparts posed irrelevant questions during the practical examination for subjective evaluation while the theory papers had an objective centralized valuation system.
