GAAMA urges Gujarat govt to adopt students exchange programme in GAU.
To spruce up interest in Ayurveda through academics, Gujarat Ayurvedic Aushadh Manufacturers Association (GAAMA) has proposed the Gujarat government to take up initiatives towards adopting foreign students exchange programme in the Gujarat Ayurved University (GAU), Jamnagar. This demand comes in the wake of growing interest among the foreign nationals in understanding, studying and doing research in the stream of Ayurveda by coming in to India for the same.
GAAMA feels that the government should tap this opportunity to generate interest in Ayurveda sector, by providing better platform to the interested students by way of government affiliated students exchange programme. This they believe will not only help in attracting more students to India, but will also play a greater role in placing the Indian ayurvedic students to foreign university to get shared experience on ayurvedic education.Read more......
Banaras Hindu University (BHU) MD/MS Ayurveda Entrance Exam Cancelled.
VARANASI: The entrance examination of MD/MS, Faculty of Ayurveda, Institute of Medical Sciences (IMS), Banaras Hindu University (BHU) has been cancelled after a group of students raised their voice that the objective question paper of the examination was misleading and had the correct answers printed in light shade. According to director IMS Dr RG Singh, "It is probably the printing mistake and so a
re-examination would now be conducted on August 4."
The question paper was printed in four sets in Hindi as well as English carrying 180 questions. According to students, each question had four options including one correct answer. The students have claimed that the correct answer was printed in light shade while rest of the paper was printed in black colour normally.
"This trend was visible in the English translation of the questions, since we answered most of the questions in Hindi, we could not notice the trend. After a while, during answering questions that required referring English translation, we caught the trend", informed a student.
After the examination, most of the students discussed about noticing the similar trend, they went to see the director of IMS, Dr RG Singh. Some students also staged sit-in-stir in front of vice chancellor's residence..Read more......
