"NEXT" PG medicos exit exam: TS Govt seeks Centre to pass 'failed' students

The Telangana state government on Wednesday, September 16, 2020, requested the Central government to award grace marks to all the PG medical students who had failed in the recently held Post Graduate exit exam.

Telangana Health Minister Etela Rajendar spoke to Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare Dr Harsh Vardhan and Secretary General, Medical Council of India (MCI), Dr Rakesh Kumar Vats in this regard on Wednesday.

Eatala said the PG medicos in Telangana had discharged their duties under a lot of stress during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

“The PG medicos in Telangana State have been serving Covid-19 patients since March. Each medico is ending-up spending anywhere between 10 hours and 12 hours while extending healthcare services to Covid patients. During such stressful times, they also had to prepare for their PG exit examination. The medicos deserve grace marks so that those who have failed by just a few marks can clear the exams,” he said.

Nearly 1040 PG medical students appeared for PG xams in Telangana. Of them, nearly 100 have failed.
