The new rules were introduced by KGMU a year before and after approval from the executive council, the action was taken against the students.
The admission of four MBBS students at King George’s Medical University (KGMU) was cancelled after they could not clear exams in over a decade’s time.
King George’s Medical University (KGMU) in Lucknow has revoked the admission of four students who have failed the MBBS exams for over 20 years. The students, who were admitted to the university in 1997, 1999, 2001, and 2006, respectively, were unable to clear the exams despite being given several opportunities.
According to KGMU spokesperson Dr. Sudhir Singh, the students were also debarred from the campus for failing to attend classes for all subjects they were to take the exams for. The new rules were introduced by KGMU a year ago and were approved by the executive council.
“The rules have been made according to directions from National Medical Commission (NMC). Students who do not fulfill rules are facing action,” said Dr. Singh.
The decision to revoke the students’ admission has been met with mixed reactions. Some people have praised the university for taking action, while others have criticized the decision, saying that it is unfair to the students who have been struggling to pass the exams.
The NMC has set a 10-year time limit for students to complete their MBBS degree. After 10 years, students who have not passed the exams are required to leave the medical college.
The revocation of the students’ admission is a reminder of the importance of academic rigor in medical education. It is also a reminder that students who are struggling to pass their exams need to be given the support they need to succeed.
