Decision to cut marks in MBBS entry test stayed - National

Dhaka: The High Court on Tuesday stayed the decision of curtailing five marks each of examinees appearing in MBBS admission test for the second time.

An HC bench comprising justice M Enayetur Rahim and justice Md Jahangir Hossain passed the order after hearing a writ petition filed by a Supreme Court layer.

Besides, the court also issued a rule asking the authorities concerned why the government’s decision to deduct marks from second time admission seekers would not be declared “illegal” and “unlawful”.

Health secretary, director general of Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS), director (Medical Education and Health Manpower Development), chairman of the Bangladesh Medical and Dental Council (BMDC) and Dhaka University’s vice-chancellor were made respondents to the rule

They were asked to respond the rule within four weeks.

On August 27, the Supreme Court lawyer Eunus Ali Akand filed the petition with the HC challenging the government’s decision.
