 Supreme Court Approves Objective Type Exams for Filling Up Medical Seats

A Bench consisting of Chief Justice K.G. Balakrishnan and Justice P. Sathasivam has approved plans by the CBSE to conduct objective type of exams for both preliminary and final examinations in the all India quota for admissions to medical/dental courses in 2009.

Under the current system, preliminary exams are of the objective type, while the final ones are non-objective. In its application to the apex court, CBSE had said that conducting non-objective type of exams was time consuming,


"Due to the introduction of non-objective type pattern of examination, not only are the candidates under tremendous stress, but there is also inevitably a large element of subjectivity involved in the evaluation," it had added.

The revised scheme will be applicable from 2009 onward and will consist of 200 questions of the objective type in preliminary exams and 120 questions in the final exams.
