*Supreme Court to hear tomorrow plea to evaluate PG Resident Doctors on basis of internal/other assessment* The Supreme Court will hear tomorrow a writ petition filed by a group of 17 final year resident postgraduate doctors seeking alternative mode of assessment, considering the fact that many such doctors are still serving in COVID-19 duties. The resident PG doctors submitted that in middle of their routine COVID-19 duties, which usually range from 8 to 12 hours a day and upto 24 hours (depending on the nature of the duty), they "were shocked to note that their Universities started to announce timetables for Final Year Examination." The petitioners contended that the plea is not to seek cancellation or postponement of the final year examination, but rather calls for an alternative mode of assessment to be adopted. This may include assessment on the basis of practical examination and/or assessment on the basis of internal assessment. The doctors further submitted that expecting a doctor to sit for a theory examination, in absence of any preparatory leave and without a reasonable notice to prepare, is unjust and manifestly arbitrary .
