The Punjab and Haryana high court will on Tuesday pronounce its judgment on the Punjab Pre-Medical Entrance Test (PMET- 2015) conducted on May 17 by the Baba Farid University of Health Sciences (BFUHS), Faridkot.

The judgment was reserved by the high court single-judge bench on Thursday. During the almost three-month hearing, the high court bench of justice RK Jain accorded three-four hearing per week to the case and each hearing was conducted for up to three hours.

The petitioner had challenged the examination seeking its cancellation alleging that the question paper for the examination was in accordance with the prospectus issued by the university. They also submitted details of 40-odd questions which the petitioners had claimed were wrong.

During the hearing, the university had accepted that two questions were wrong and had announced that equal marks would be allotted to all students. However, it had maintained that it would not disclose the question paper and submitted that no other errors were found.

The third party in the case were those students who as per the result had scored good marks and had chances of getting an admission and had opposed cancellation of the examination.

Over 15,000 students had appeared in the test held on the campus of Lovely Professional University, Jalandhar, for around 1,000 MBBS seats.
