Medical hopefuls in a sweat over distant exam centres

Written By Unknown on Senin, 28 April 2014 | 22.23

MUMBAI: Ranjita Jadhav (name changed), a student from a junior college in Sangli, will be travelling all the way to Mumbai this weekend to appear for her medical entrance exam.

Her centre for the All India Pre-Medical/Pre-Dental Test (AIPMT), which is conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), is at one of the Kendriya Vidyalayas in Colaba. Jadhav will travel to Mumbai a day before
the test.

While filling out the forms for AIPMT, students are expected to mention three city codes according to their convenience.

Options available for aspirants in the state include Mumbai, Panaji, and Bangalore.

"I chose Mumbai as it was the closest to Sangli. I would have preferred a centre in my town to avoid travelling," she said. To make matters worse, Jadhav has to return to her hometown for another medical entrance exam, the one conducted by the state on May 8. Most of her friends are travelling to Mumbai
for the exam, but at different centres.

The father of a Pune student, Sohail Lakdawala (name changed), says his son has been allotted a centre at Ram Ratna Vidya Mandir school in Bhayander. "It was tough to locate the school, which is near Gorai beach. I had to spend last Sunday in Mumbai to find the centre before the exam. I do not want my son to get hassled on the exam day," said Sohail's father.

"His classmates have got centres in Navi Mumbai, which is still better than having a centre in Bhayander. Most students plan to either stay in a hotel or with relatives or friends for a day," he added.

In Mumbai, the students claim that there has been "random" allotment of exam centres. A student living in Dombivli got a centre in Powai. "Though I do not have to travel a lot, some of my friends have been
randomly given centres," Amit Kothari (name changed) said.

"Another friend from Dombivli has got a centre at Goregaon, another classmate was allotted a Panvel centre. There are centres in Dombivli too, but we do not know how the centres were finalized," he added.

A circular on the AIPMT website states: "Though every effort will be made to allot a centre in one of the places selected by the candidate, the board reserves its discretion to allot a centre." The website mentions that centre allotment is made by "computer and there is no human intervention".
