As question papers leaked, IoM cancels MBBS entrance exam


Kathmandu, November 20, 2017: The Institute of Medicine (IoM) under Tribhuvan University on Sunday finally cancelled the MBBS entrance examinations held on October 14 after it was confirmed that the question papers of the test were leaked, reports The Kathmandu Post.

The IoM took the decision four days after the TU Executive Council authorized the IoM to take the legitimate action on the issue. Acting on the report of police investigation, medical council and the probe committee of the university, the Executive Council had concluded that the question papers were leaked and the entrance examination was undisciplined.

“We have decided to cancel the entrance exam of October working on the directive from the TU Executive Council. The new dates will be fixed very soon,” said IoM Dean Dr. Jagdish Chandra Agrawal.

Earlier on October 14, over 15 students and fraudsters were arrested from various examination centres for using sophisticated wireless devices to cheat in the entrance exam.
