The Results of “ALL INDIA ENTRANCE EXAMINATION FOR ADMISSION TO MD/MS/PG DIPLOMA AND MDS COURSES – 2006” conducted by AIIMS has been released at http://www.aiims.ac.in/aiims/events/result/MDMS06-RSL.pdf
This is a part of the notification
The following is the list of candidates who have qualified for MD/MS/PG Diploma and MDS courses for admission to various Medical/Dental Colleges/Institutions in India against 50% open merit seats on the basis of All India Entrance Examination held on Sunday, the 8th January, 2006. The list is roll number-wise and the position in order of merit is given in parenthesis against each roll number. The list is subject to verification of eligibility criteria & original documents as given in the Prospectus. The Institute is not responsible for any printing error. The allocation of subject and Medical College will be done by the Directorate General of Health Services as per counselling schedule given at the bottom. Individual intimation in this respect is being sent separately. Result is displayed on the notice board of Examination Section, AIIMS, New Delhi and will be available on web sites www.aiims.ac.in and www.aiims.edu
I can understand that the list is subject to verification and also that the individual call letters are being sent seperately. What I am at loss to comprehend is the following line given in the result notification “The Institute is not responsible for any printing error.” If the results are published in a news paper, then we can understand that the institute is not responsible for printing errors. But how can an authority conducting examination shun out from their responsibility of maintaining reliability and validity of a result published in their notice board
Can’t the AIIMS people follow a simple procedure of verifying the result AFTER it has been printed. After all they are dealing with careers of doctors (each of them going to treat thousands of patients) and save innumerable patients.
Can a student say that he is not responsible for errors in his paper. Can an artist say that he is not responsible for the mixed up colours of his work. Of course mistakes can creep in. But is it not the duty of the authorities to check for mistakes and correct them. Does the AIIMS notification mean that we have bear with the mistakes. If they are not competent enough to check the validity of something they publish, what is the fun in conducting an exam. Why can’t they give the responsibility of conducting the exam to some one else
Who then is responsible for the missing questions in few question papers and missing ranks ? Who is going to bell the cat ??
