Observing that students must be given their question papers, the Bombay high court on Tuesday, 10th July directed the Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER) to show the MHT-CET 2012 question paper of physics and chemistry to a student to check if the key answers of these subjects are correct. A division bench of Justice Dhananjay Chandrachud and Justice Ramesh Dhanuka was hearing a petition filed by Ashwini Patankar (17), challenging the unusually low marks she secured in the physics and chemistry paper.
Her petition said that despite her excellent academic record in which she secured 97 marks out of 100 in biology, she got just 63 out of 100 in physics and chemistry. On 21th June, 2012, the DMER said after a verification of her original answer sheets and key answers of the question paper version 22, there was no change in Ashwinis marks. Ashwini was given a copy of her answer sheet and key answers. She noted that in the key answer sheet, the DMER had made a mistake in framing two questions and for which students were given full marks.
But Ashwinis plea said without a copy of the question paper, she did not know what the question was and if the key answer was correct. DMER officers told her that she cannot question the correctness of the key answers or whether it was wrongly fed in the computer. Ashwinis advocate Mukesh Vashi said, The Supreme Court in its 2011 judgment has questioned the secrecy of question papers when students have already read them. The judges, concurred with him, saying in view of this verdict, question papers in all faculties should be allowed.
