"Following a detailed discussion, the board of studies has decided that the 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," a circular issued by the varsity on May 26 said.
"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," university Vice Chancellor Dr R S Sharma told PTI today.
Giving an example, he said a student can now write "heart ka daura" instead of heart attack in the examination.
These students also struggle to express themselves effectively in oral examinations, and at times it annoys the examiners, he said.
The varsity has 312 colleges teaching various courses including MBBS, Ayurvedic medicine and nursing affiliated to it. Examinations are held twice a year - in July and January.
