The Supreme Court has refused to do away with the online MBBS under-graduate entrance test for this year and has said that the standard of entrance examination for premier medical college AIIMS cannot be diluted.
Some candidates challenged the AIIMS online entrance test 2018 for MBBS courses to be held in May 26 and 27, 2018 in two shifts each day depending on the number of students taking the exam. The petitioners have also challenged the percentile system of ranking terming it is an opaque process
Keeping in view the difficulties in holding the off line exam and the advantage of the online exam, there was no merit in the Writ petition.
The Writ Petition is accordingly dismissed,” a bench of justices Arun Mishra and U U Lalit said.
Advocate Dushyant Parashar, appearing for AIIMS, said that the question paper for all the four shifts spanning over two days will have same difficulty level as certified by experts and the percentile system of marking is the best standard to judge the candidate. The counsel for petitioner Sneha Chandra Shekhar Fule and others contended that the online entrance examination to be conducted in four shifts in two days for the 807 seats will have different difficulty levels.
The total number of candidates taking the examination for 2018 are 4.5 lakhs and submitted a confidential report prepared by the competent authority to the court.
.The AIIMS MBBS online entrance examination 2018 is scheduled to be held on May 26 and 27 tentatively in two shifts each day.
The first shift will start at 9 AM to 12.30 AM while the second shift will start from 3 PM to 6.30 PM and the number of shifts and dates may vary depending on number of applicants/logistics etc.
