Jammer used in NMC exams for doctors, dentists

71% fail Saturday's exams

Seventy-one percent of MBBS and BDS graduates failed the Nepal Medical Council (NMC) examinations they took on Saturday.
One must pass the exams for registration with NMC to start practice. Just 262 of the 903 who appeared for the exams on Saturday will now get NMC registration.
NMC employs one invigilator for every 15 examinees. Representatives from health and education ministries, Nepal Health Professional Council and other organizations are also invited to observe the exams.
The answer sheets are checked by foreign nationals using machines. The staffers and officials deployed for examinations cannot leave the examination halls until the results are published.
NMC even use mobile jammer to prevent cheating during the exams. “We use jammer to ensure that nobody can manipulate the exams,” NMC Chairman Dr Dharma Kanta Baskota said. “Nobody is allowed to cheat. There is stringent checking before entering the exam hall. It is reassuring due to use of jammer.”
NMC forms a committee for conducting the exams and office-bearers are not involved in examination process if any relative is taking the exams, Dr Baskota claimed.
The NMC holds exams for MBBS and BDS, and MD, MS and MDMS at different times. It conducts three such examinations every year.
Those who failed on Saturday can appear in the next exams to be held four months later.
