New Delhi, Dec 8: The Vice-Chancellor of Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj Medical University of Lucknow has urged the Medical Council of India (MCI) to award degree to its Scheduled Caste students, who have failed to clear their final examinations after repeated attempts.

According to letter written by Prof. D. K. Gupta, Vice-Chancellor of the University on Dec 2 to Medical Council of India, "As many as 68 students had appeared in the Physiology supplementary examination in Oct. Only 30 were declared passed. The failed students include those who have appeared five to elevan times in the previous first professional examinations. It may further be pointed out that for the above mentioned MBBS first professional examination, the University appointed all external examiners after due deliberations and on the request of the failed students. Still most of them failed."

The VC requested Medical Council of India to grant their degrees based on their previous performances without taking any further tests.

The VC also claimed that University has conducted extra classes for failed students but still they could not clear their tests. "I want to get rid of the allegations of caste discrimination," he said.
