High Court Asks For Revision of Himachal PMT Result

Shimla: With answers to some questions for the 2011-12 Pre Medical Entrance Test (PMT) changed after they were scrutinized by a special moderation committee of HP University, the High Court has asked for reworking the final results.

Some students had approached the High Court over an alleged wrong stand taken by the university on some of the contentious questions.

A division bench consisting of Chief Justice Kurian Joseph and Justice VK Sharma directed HPU to rework the answer sheets of the PMT test for admission to MBBS and BDS courses in the state for the academic year 2011-12 on the basis of the new answer key.

All the questions in disputes were referred to a special moderation committee consisting of experts. On basis of the committees report, the court asked for making changes in the answers plotted by the students in the examination.

The PMT prospectus had declared publication of answers to the questions asked in the competitive examination and had also mentioned that an opportunity would be provided to candidates for submitting objections that would be scrutinized by an appropriate body of the university.

Several examination candidates had objected that certain questions were out of syllabus, in response to some question multiple answers were possible, certain questions were fully wrong and some were wrongly deleted.

However the court refrained from passing any observations with regard to conduct of examination as it was brought to its notice that All India Examination pattern was expected to be implemented from next year.
