BANGALORE : After allegations of malpractice in post-graduate and under-graduate medical examinations, the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) is now faced with cases of malpractice in the recently held Master of Physiotherapy (MPT) examination.
The results of the MPT exams conducted in April/May were announced on October 7, but 90 per cent of the students were failed.
In May, soon after completion of the examination, the university authorities received an anonymous letter alleging malpractices in the examinations and stating that colleges were involved it. The letter cited code words and symbols given by colleges to the irregular students so that they could identify themselves to evaluators. These include marking cross lines on one page of the answer script in blue and red ink, signs like XOX within bold lines, a code saying CONTENT BOX, arrow marks (^) and pencil markings, the letter said.
According to RGUHS sources, “The evaluation was conducted thrice and there is no policy of revaluation.”
The syndicate members have now decided to seek a detailed inquiry at the meeting to be held on October 17.
