IN A bid to stop fake examinees from taking the CPMT 2006, being conducted by the King Georges’ Dental University (KGDU), all state medical universities, including the KGMU, have decided to hold their terminal exams on Sunday. KGMU VC SK Agarwal said, “This is in the wake of CPMT.” He said that it would check fake candidates from taking the CPMT.
The CPMT examinations will be held on Sunday at 137 centres in 17 districts in UP and at one district in Uttaranchal. At least 86,705 candidates will take the examination. The district magistrates have been asked to look after the arrangements related to the examination. In each district, there will be one nodal officer to supervise the examination.
Why such an important decision was taken at the eleventh hour? Replying to this question KGMU V-C said, “It all happened because I was not aware that medical universities are conducting their terminal tests in the wake of CPMT on Sunday. When I came to know about it, I ordered the examination cell officials to hold the terminal test. Hence, it got delayed a bit. But the students, pursuing various courses, have been informed and we’re confident that it would be held peacefully.”
The decision to hold KGMU terminal examinations with that of the CPMT might create some ruffle. Reason: Earlier, the examination was scheduled for Monday.
But on Saturday, the varsity administrations decided to advance the terminal examinations and conduct the same on Sunday. As a result, there are possibilities that many students are not aware of the eleventh-hour decision and may not be able to take the internal examinations. However, Agarwal said that there was no reason to believe why examinees would not turn up for the internal examinations. He said that besides, the authorities are monitoring the activities of the hostellers.
PCOs to remain closed
District administrations, too, are leaving no stone unturned. Nodal officer ADM city (west) Jai Prakash Singh said that all PCOs around the vicinity of the examination centre would remain closed on Sunday.
Power cut exempted
The UPPCL has decided to exempt all the 17 districts from power cuts on Sunday in view of CPMT. The PCL issued orders to this effect on Saturday. The cities that will get uninterrupted power supply are Lucknow, Kanpur, Agra, Bareilly, , Noida, Ghaziabad, Muzaffarnagar, Meerut, Aligarh, Moradabad, Varanasi, Gorakhpur, Jaunpur, Faizabad, Allahabad, Jhansi and Saharanpur.
