MP University Allows Students To Write Their Exams In “Hinglish”

What a relief for students hailing particularly from rural areas, who are not well versed in English! A recent circular issued by the Madhya Pradesh Medical Science University (MPMSU) on May 26 says that it has allowed the use of ‘Hinglish’ for students in their oral and written exams.

Following a detailed discussion, the board of studies has decided that students of all colleges will have the option to answer questions in their examinations in English, Hinglish (a mixture of Hindi and English) and Hindi,” said the varsity, as mentioned by the PTI report.

Citing an example, the vice-chancellor of the University RS Sharma said, if a student wishes to write ‘hart ka daura’ instead of ‘heart attack’ in the exams, then there will be no marks deduction.

On Thursday, Sharma said to PTI, “The decision is being hailed by students and other concerned people as it is bound to help medical students, especially those hailing from rural areas.

The students belonging from rural areas cannot express themselves properly while giving their oral exams, even if they know the correct answer, and this used to annoy the examiners.

The Madhya Pradesh University comprises of 312 colleges, which has several courses affiliated under it including MBBS, Ayurvedic medicine, and nursing. The exams are held twice a year — in the month of July and January, said the report.

Life is beautiful when you come across people and become part of their simple yet wonderful journey. Writing gives me a sense of belonging and freedom to express myself. I believe there is endless good to look forward to.
