Indore: In order to prevent cheating malpractice during the final year MBBS and BDS exams examinations, the Indore based Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya (DAVV), a deemed Medical University, has constituted a three-member flying squad as invigilators.
Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Medical College (MGM Medical College) which is affiliated with the DAVV; has been chosen as the examination centre for Indore candidates this year.
Final year MBBS and BDS exams will be conducted in the third week of February and over 500 students in total are going to appear for the exams. Hence to keep a check on these many students and ensure that these students don’t cheat during the examinations, the DAVV constituted a 3 member squad for invigilation.
Confirming the decision, Deputy Registrar (Examinations), Prajwal Khare told TOI, “We always make a flying squad for all examinations as a preventive measure and the number of the flying squad depends on the number of students appearing for the exam. As this is a small examination, we have made only one flying squad.”
The flying squad will be given instructions to take stringent actions against those found cheating.
“We have decided to conduct final year examination of MBBS and BDS in the third week of this month and we will be announcing time table. There are around 250 students of MBBS and 250 students of BDS, who will be sitting for the examination,” the Controller of Examinations at DAVV, Dr Ashesh Tiwari added.
The university will announce the time table for both the examinations soon.
Medical Institutes across India are now actively taking strict measures to prevent cheating bids during examinations. Recently, the Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS) issued a dress code and decided to conduct the MBBS examinations under CCTV vigilance.
