Students in a fix following errors in OMR sheet

Students who appeared for the Common Entrance Test (CET-MBBS Stage II) are facing a harrowing time regarding admissions to various undergraduate medical courses. The revised results of the examination, conducted by Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University (GGSIPU) were declared on June 20, as the previous result, declared on May 27, was evaluated using a wrong answer key. The revised results have altered the marks and thus the ranks of the applicants.

The university declared a revised result after the acknowledgement of complaints from the students. They have also pointed out typological errors and said that essential data were missing in various questions in the chemistry paper. 

“There were many complaints. A committee was constituted to analyse the question papers as well as the answer keys and errors were found in both. We have revised the result based on the committee report,” said Rajiv Kale, Registrar.

In the process of revision of results, some students have gained ranks while some others have lost out on marks. There is uncertainty amongst students regarding procurement of seats in a medical college. The students requested the university to allow them to review the Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) sheet for clarifications.

“The only way to verify the answer sheet is to travel to Delhi and pay Rs 1,000 for reviewing the OMR sheet. Trains are full and the notice period is too short. The counselling begins on June 29. We have already left seats in other states in response to IP University and now, are at a loss,” said Madhav, an aspirant. 

“The scrapping of All India Pre-Medical Entrance Test (AIPMT) has also led to a mad rush to secure at least a seat in a college,” he added.

The officials claim that they have acknowledged the errors and taken measures to neutralise them. 
According to the notification uploaded on the university website, answers to as many as 11 questions of chemistry paper have been identified as incorrect and have been replaced with correct answers. A corrected answer key has been used for <g data-gr-id="34">revaluation</g> too. 

A number of questions from both physics and zoology have also been rectified and re-evaluated.
