'How Can Patients Be In Hands Of Doctors Who Haven't Cleared Exams?' : Supreme Court Rejects PG Medical Students' Plea To Waive Final Exams

The Supreme Court on Friday rejected a prayer made in a petition filed by a group of Post Graduate medical students seeking the waiver of final exams in view of the COVID-19 pandemic situation.

A vacation bench comprising Justices Indira Banerjee and MR Shah observed that the Court cannot pass orders for waiver of exams as it was an educational policy matter.

"They will be treating patients. How can they be in hands of people who haven't cleared exams?", the bench asked during the hearing.

The bench has however issued notice to the Union Government and National Medical Commission on the other prayers made in the writ petition(Shashidhar A and others v Union of India and others)
