News item about BDS students flashed in Sun tv news channel & news published in Deccan Chronicle dt.30.1.2012, Dinakaran dt.30.1.2012 & Dinamalar dt.30.1.2012

Yesterday, (i.e) on 29th January 2012, a news item has been flashed in SUN TV News channel that the Bachelor of Dental Surgery Students of this University has alleged that the University is conducting the BDS supplementary examination from 1st February 2012 onwards, when the writ petitions filed by the BDS students challenging the publication of revised result is pending before the Hon’ble High Court of Chennai. The revised results are published as per DCI norms. When the matter is pending before the Hon’ble High Court of Chennai, how the University will conduct the University supplementary examination from 1st February 2012 onwards. Therefore, the students want that the University examination should be postponed until the judgement delivered by the Hon’ble High court of Chennai, on the above matter. Further, the students have stated that they will go on one day strike on 31st January 2012 for the above matter.

In this connection, it may be stated after the revision of MBBS result as per MCI norms, the University has furnished an Undertaking to the Hon’ble High Court of Chennai, that the University will revise BDS result as per DCI norms and Indian Medicine and Homoeopathy courses as per CCIM and CCH norms. Therefore, as per the undertaking furnished by the University to the Hon’ble High Court of Chennai, the revised BDS result has been published by the University on 24th December 2011.

Similarly BDS candidates those who have filed writ petitions in the Hon’ble High Court of Chennai, had earlier passed when the results are published as per the University norms and some of the students had later failed in one or two subjects after the university had revised the results as per DCI norms. The above tricky situation is due to awarding of grace marks to the students by the university. Earlier the grace marks of five marks has been awarded in only one subject or divided into two or three subjects. But as per the DCI norms, the grace marks (of 5 marks) is awarded to the candidates who have failed in only one subject and passed in other subjects. If the candidate has failed in more than one subject, the grace mark should not be awarded (as per the Council).
