Hopes Dashed After SC Quashes Order Awarding 196 Grace Marks to NEET Students Opting for Tamil

Chennai: R Bharathidasan, 19, is the uncrowned mascot for the movement leading the controversial medical entrance test NEET in the Tamil language.

Born into an agricultural family in Madurai, he decided to take a year off after his class 12 examination to prepare for NEET.

Looking at his NEET 2018 Score, he realised his chances for a medical seat were slim to none but good fortune came in the way of a Madras High Court order granting 196 marks for all students who took the NEET 2018 in Tamil language, on account of the 49 questions rendered invalid because of improper translations.

In the meantime, he got himself enrolled in the biotechnology course waiting for the legal hurdles to clear and hoping that the additional score will help him secure a seat in a self-financed MBBS course or dentistry institute under reserved caste category.

On Thursday, it all went downhill. The Supreme Court set aside the Madras High Court order, annulling chances for students like Bharathidasan to get into sought after colleges.

“I could have still fulfilled my wish to enter a proper medical institute. Now, there is no other option but to prepare for NEET 2019,” he said from Usilampatti, Madurai.

More than the euphoria and disappointment cycle the NEET controversy had created, Bharathidasan felt the dearth of Tamil language material for preparation as a big hurdle: “I am from Tamil medium and a lot of time is wasted on finding the Tamil words for English ones in the NCERT text books.”

Bharathidasan’s lament is not a lone rant. Advocate Ram Prakash, who represented Tamil NEET students and founder of NGO Tech for All, said, “NEET textbooks should be in the regional languages. That is not addressed in the Supreme Court order.” He added that a minimum of 800 students would have benefited from the Madras High Court order.

In its judgment, however, the Supreme Court categorically stated that the Madras High Court has blindly allocated the 196 marks: “It is said that there are some students who might have otherwise failed but for the addition of marks by the High Court. Most of these students have scored higher than those who wrote the examination in English and other regional languages. This is mainly due to the blind allocation of 196 marks to every student who wrote the exam in Tamil.”

Private tutors believe preparatory material in Tamil language needs to be honed and expanded further for students in the state to stand a better chance at NEET. Narayanan N, founder of Chennai-based TenSquare Academy, which holds coaching classes for NEET, said, “There is no level-playing field for Tamil medium students when it comes to NEET. It will take another 3-4 years for proper preparatory materials to come up in Tamil.”

While NEET presents a unique challenge for every non-English medical aspirant, Tamil students have a tragic memory: Anitha. The 17-year-old litigated against the conduct of NEET exams. She wanted allocation of medical seats based on twelfth grade scores and not NEET. The Supreme Court turned down her plea and she committed suicide in September 2017.

Politically, the suicide of Anitha sent ripples across the state, with the DMK-led Opposition and other parties mounting a scathing attack on the state and the Centre for “imposing” the NEET exam.

Bharathidasan has the dark history of the medical exam alive in his memory. Will it force him to give up preparing for NEET in Tamil and give it a shot in English? “No, I will take it again in 2019, in Tamil,” he said.

At least 2,008 women set to join IITs this year as Govt hikes reservation to 17%​

Mandatory 946 seats will be available exclusively for women who want to join IITs in the 2019 academic session as the government plans to increase the seats for women in the country’s top engineering institutions by bumping up the number of women-only seats by 167 seats — from 14 per cent (779) in 2018 to 17 per cent (946). Going by the recent trend, the number of women IITians can be speculated to be no less than 2,008.

The women-only seats, or supernumerary seats, were introduced in 2018 in order to increase the number of girl students in IITs, which continues to be heavily skewed in favour of boys.

In 2018, 1,062 girls made it to the IITs through the common merit list in the JEE (Advanced). But the government created 14 per cent, or 779 supernumerary seats, which took the number of girls in the IITs to 1,841, the highest so far. A total of 12,058 seats were on offer in the 23 IITs in 2018.

Sources in the Ministry of Human Resource Development said the success of supernumerary seats had prompted the government to increase it to 17 per cent in 2019.

The government is hoping that the creation of around 900 girl-only seats will bring a remarkable change in the gender disparity on IIT campuses.

“The plan was to take the total number of girls to 20 per cent in B Tech programmes in IITs by 2020-21 but we are targeting to achieve this in 2019 itself,” the official said.

A committee under IIT Mandi director Timothy A Gonsalves, which was formed to recommend ways to increase the enrollment of girls in undergraduate programmes at the premier technology institutes, had suggested creating supernumerary seats for women, which was accepted by the Centre.

In 2017, the girls’ admission percentage in B Tech programmes was a mere 9.3. But officials in the IITs said this year the presence of women was ensured in even those streams that were earlier shunned by them.

“While girl students often prefer computer, electric and electronic engineering to civil and mechanical, this year they were given more options,” a senior Joint Seat Allocation Authority said.

Dheeraj Sanghi, a senior professor at IIT Kanpur, said while creating women-only seat was “okay” to correct the gender imbalance at IITs, the authorities should also look at larger interventions such as ending gender biases at the examination level.

“What the government is telling girls is that while you cannot crack the entrance test, we will offer you seats through reservation. But why not end gender bias in the entrance test itself, making it easier for them to qualify?” he asked.

NTA EXPRESSES WILLINGNESS TO CONDUCT CLAT 2019, SUPREME COURT YET TO TAKE FINAL DECISION

The National Testing Agency submitted had submitted an affidavit expressing its willingness to conduct the CLAT 2019 exam and onwards. NTA released the affidavit as a response to the Hon’ble Supreme court’s query asking for NTA’s willingness to conduct the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT). NTA has confidently submitted an affidavit stating its abilities to conduct the CLAT 2019 exam.

To this, the Bar Council of India which majorly also conducts the All India Bar Examination(AIBE) expressed its prerogative to conduct the CLAT 2019 exam. The Bar Council of India had expressed its interest to conduct the CLAT exam way before NTA. However, it is very unlikely that any of the NLU or Bar Council of India will conduct the CLAT 2019 if the Supreme Court agrees with the National Testing Agency.

In lieu of the majorly misconducted CLAT 2018 exam, the Supreme court had passed an interim in which it stated that it is not satisfied with the way the exam got conducted. Further, the Hon’ble court mentioned that the conducting body should have arranged facility of uninterrupted UPS and generator facility and directed Union of India in MHRD to appoint a committee to look into the matter.

The formed committee will also make sure that proper arrangements of the facilities are provided to the students so that the students do not face any blunders.

The supreme court also thinks that the idea of various NLU’s conducting the exam needs to be revisited. The Hon’ble court states that against the fee amount made over to the conducting body, the fee charged from the students is far in excess. The committee formed by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) in its report dammed NUALS Kochi for making 90-90% profit of the blunderous CLAT 2018 exam.

The committee believes that the CLAT Application form should not cost more than Rs 1500/- to the students. However, as of now no change with regard to the CLAT 2019 Application Fee has been seen. The CLAT 2019 Application form still going to cost Rs 4000/- to the students.

According to the provisions set by Law for the Bar Council of India such as the functions of Bar Council of India and the General powers of the Bar Council of India to make rules, it is evident that the answering respondent has the responsibility to make sure to promote legal education and maintain the standard of legal education. Only the Bar Council of India has the function of conducting the tests and MHRD has no responsibility in such matters.

In the interim, the Hon’ble court also stated that the Bar Council of India has been successfully conducting the All India Bar Examination since 2011. Insofar there has been no complaint with regard to the conduct of the AIBE Exam. However, the final decision for the conduct of CLAT 2019 exam is in the hands of the Supreme court.

Soon You’ll Be Able To Take IIT-JEE, CAT, And Other Competitive Exams Sitting Just In Your Home

National competitive exams like IIT-JEE and CAT are stressful enough on their own. But after students prepare for them for years and are nervous enough already, they also have to deal with ensuring they get to the venue on time.

national_exam_1542712309

In the near future, students answering these kinds of exams may at least have one less bit of stress to deal with. Since these are computer-based exams anyway, students may be allowed to simply log in and take the exam from anywhere

“In fact why just home?” asked Venguswamy Ramaswamy, Global Head of TCS iON, in a sit-down with GadgetsNow. “In future you can simply be at some beach or hills and take computer-based exams like IIT-JEE, CAT, and government service exams.

TCS iON is responsible for conducting around 80 percent of these PC-based national competitive exams in India, including service exams, and remote exams are a notion they’ve been suggesting. How exactly that can be logistically carried out is another question.

For instance, a student’s identity could possibly be verified via fingerprint using a companion smartphone app. There are two major problems though, like the one that comes up if the student doesn’t have a fingerprint sensor on any smartphone in their home. The other is how much this violates the privacy of someone’s personal data.

And if you instead decide to go with face scanning, that’s even worse. For one thing, your facial scan might be worse than giving away your thumbprint. Then there’s also the fact that face scans on regular cameras are nowhere near as precise as devices with IR blasters like the iPhone X upwards. This means they could easily fooled by a photo, a vulnerability students can use to cheat.

Hopefully though, TCS iON and the related authorities do give this some serious thought and find a way to implement being able to take national exams remotely. At least then test-takers would only have to worry about the stability of their home internet, and not whether they’re going to be late to the exam hall.

NEET 2019: Madras HC stays order regarding eligibility clause for medical courses abroad

The Madras High Court on Monday stayed a single judge’s order barring the MCI and the Centre from issuing eligibility certificate to students who secure less than 80 per cent marks in the qualifying examination to pursue medical courses in foreign countries.

A division bench comprising Justice M Sathyanarayanan and Justice N Seshasayee, hearing an appeal by the Board of Governors in supression of Medical Council of India, granted the interim stay and posted the matter to December 17 for next hearing. The bench also issued notices to the Centre, the Tamil Nadu Medical Council and the state government.

The appeal challenged the September 28 order of Justice N Kirubakaran, contending that the single judge had increased the minimum qualification marks from 50 per cent to 80 per cent without any challenge to the stipulation. The judge had erroneously re-legislated the provisions of regulation on graduate medical education 1997, it submitted.

Justice Kirubakaran had passed the order on a petition by foreign medical degree-holder Thamarai Selvan seeking a direction to the MCI to issue a certificate of provisional registration to enable him to take up the compulsory rotatory residential internship (CRRI) in the state.

He had pointed out that in the past 10 years, only 15-25 per cent of doctors with foreign degrees managed to clear the mandatory screening test, the Foreign Medical Graduate Examination, conducted by the National Board of Examination, to practise the profession in India and hence, directed increasing the minimum qualification marks.
