KGMU UNDERGRADUATE students have lost seven precious days of studies. They need to complete their final exams before March 31 to sit in the PGME-2007 exams. “Students need to take 800 hours of study in Anatomy in the first year and similarly 400 hours are to be spent attending lectures in Biochemistry and Physiology,” said a senior faculty member.

With a month of summer vacation, 10-day winter vacations, 52 Sundays and several other holidays there is little time for UG students to go on strike.

However, they are on strike since the death of their classmate Deepak Agarwal.

On the other hand, post-Graduate students need 80 per cent attendance. They too have gone on strike seven times in the last one-year. Their greater loss is not been able to study patients who came during the strike period.

“Every patient is of particular academic value for students. Once he is gone or treated a repetition is not possible. Unless, PG students have experience of practical cases they are not perfect,” said another teacher, condemning the frequent strikes by KGMU students.

The only way now is to take classes during vacations but that depends upon the availability of teachers. If the final result of UG students is not out by March end they may get late for the PGME exam.
