This year, Rajasthan Medical University had conducted RPMT online for the first time, without proper resources and deliberation. This had raised several issues at the time of and after the exam. 44,000 students had appeared for the RPMT 2014 exam which was conducted on May 28, 29 and 30. The exam was conducted online even though there were not enough computers for the candidates.
59 questions in the original RPMT 2014 question paper had wrong options. Hence, students were given bonus marks for those questions. Free marks created such a big issue that the RPMT exam had to be cancelled. The Rajasthan government had asked the Supreme Court to permit it to conduct the exams again. After hearing the case, Judge H L Dattu bench gave its permission to the state government.
