Madhya Pradesh: In an atrocious error committed by the Madhya Pradesh Medical Science University (MPMSU) released last week, three MBBS prefinal year students of Sri Aurobindo Institute of Medical Sciences (SAIMS) have been allotted more than the maximum marks in the practical examination. Their mark sheets reflect them as having scored 31 or 32 marks out of 30.
As the carelessness came to light, varsity officials shifted the blame onto the 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.
Taken aback at the mark allocation to the three students, the college lodged a complaint with the university. It sent Screenshots of their mark sheets to the registrar and vice-chancellor of the university. Students are believed to have done likewise as well.
Meanwhile, Pushpendra Singh Baghel, Registrar of MPMSU told FPJ, “We have come to know about the goof up in the 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.”
As word about the blunder spread the university decided to have the college shoulder responsibility for it by blaming them for sending the wrong marks. Vice-chancellor of MPMSU Dr RS Sharma said, “We were too surprised with wrong marking to the students and probed the matter. What we have found is that SAIMS administration had sent us wrong marks. They have sent us marks out of 40 but it marking should have been done from maximum 30 marks.”
“We have summoned the college administration to give an explanation for sending wrong marks and also asked them to send new marks out of 30,” Dr Sharma told FPJ
