আঞ্চলিক প্রশ্নে ফের ভুলের শঙ্কা রইল নিটে
এই সময়: আগামী বছর ৫ মে অনুষ্ঠিত হবে নিট (ন্যাশনাল এলিজিবিলিটি কাম এন্ট্রান্স টেস্ট) পরীক্ষা। স্নাতক স্তরে ডাক্তারিতে ভর্তির এই প্রবেশিকা পরীক্ষার জন্য বৃহস্পতিবার থেকে শুরু হল অনলাইনে ফর্ম ফিলআপের প্রক্রিয়া। আগামী ৩০ নভেম্বর পর্যন্ত এই সুযোগ উন্মুক্ত থাকবে www.ntaneet.nic.in ওয়েবসাইটে।
পরীক্ষার ফি ও সময়সূচি-সহ বেশ কয়েকটি বিষয় আগামী নিটে বদলেছে। তবে সবচেয়ে বেশি যে বিষয়টি নিয়ে সমালোচনা হচ্ছে তা হল, এবারও বাংলা-সহ অন্যান্য আঞ্চলিক ভাষায় ভুল থেকে যাওয়ার যে আশঙ্কা রয়েছে, ঠারেঠোরে কার্যত তা যেন স্বীকারই করে নেওয়া হয়েছে নিট পরীক্ষার প্রসপেক্টাসে। সেখানে সাফ বলা হয়েছে, আঞ্চলিক ভাষায় কোনও ভুলত্রুটি থেকে থাকলে তা পরীক্ষার্থীকেই নিজের উদ্যোগে শুধরে নিতে হবে সংশ্লিষ্ট ইংরেজি প্রশ্নটি দেখে।
স্বাভাবিক ভাবেই ছাত্র-শিক্ষক-অভিভাবক মহলে প্রশ্ন উঠছে, আঞ্চলিক ভাষার প্রশ্ন যাতে নির্ভুল থাকে, তা নিশ্চিত করতে ব্যর্থ হয়েই কি নিট পরিচালনাকারী কর্তৃপক্ষ ন্যাশনাল টেস্ট এজেন্সির এহেন আচরণ? এই প্রশ্ন ওঠার কারণ হল, গত বারই নিটের আঞ্চলিক ভাষার প্রশ্নপত্রে অজস্র ভুল ছিল। ১৮০টি প্রশ্নের মধ্যে বাংলাতেও ছিল ১৮১টি ভুল। বিষয়টি নিয়ে আদালতে মামলা হলে বিচারপতিই প্রশ্ন তুলেছিলেন, কেন ইংরেজির মতো একটি বিদেশি ভাষাকে এত গুরুত্ব দেওয়া হচ্ছে? নিট কর্তৃপক্ষ অবশ্য সন্তোষজনক জবাব দিতে পারেননি। কেন্দ্রীয় সরকারের তরফে আশ্বাস দেওয়া হয়েছিল, আর এমন ভুল হবে না। কিন্তু এ দিন প্রকাশিত নিট প্রসপেক্টাসের সপ্তম পৃষ্ঠার সি অনুচ্ছেদের ষষ্ঠ পয়েন্টে দেখা যাচ্ছে লেখা রয়েছে— যদি কোনও ভুলভ্রান্তি বা সংশয় থেকে থাকে আঞ্চলিক ভাষার প্রশ্নে, তা হলে ইংরেজি প্রশ্নকেই চূড়ান্ত বলে মানতে হবে। বিষয়টি প্রকাশ্যে আসার পরেই শুরু হয়েছে সমালোচনা। রাজ্যের স্বাস্থ্য-শিক্ষা অধিকর্তা প্রদীপ মিত্র বলেন, ‘কেন ইংরেজিকে অগ্রাধিকার দিয়ে আঞ্চলিক ভাষাকে কম গুরুত্ব দেওয়া হচ্ছে, তা খতিয়ে দেখা হবে। প্রয়োজনে চিঠি লিখে বিষয়টি জানতে চাইব।’
ছাত্রছাত্রীদের নিটের প্রস্তুতি করায় এমন একটি প্রতিষ্ঠানের কর্ণধার পেশায় চিকিৎসক অমিয়কুমার মাইতিও প্রসপেক্টাসে এমন কথার উল্লেখ দেখে বিস্মিত ও ক্ষুব্ধ। তাঁর প্রশ্ন, ‘আঞ্চলিক ভাষাকে নিটে অন্তর্ভুক্ত করা হয়েছে সুপ্রিম কোর্টের নির্দেশে। শীর্ষ আদালত কখনও বলেনি আঞ্চলিক ভাষাকে খাটো করে দেখাতে। অথচ সেটাই করা হচ্ছে!’ তবে তিনি খুশি, এ বার সকাল ১০টার বদলে দুপুর দুটোয় পরীক্ষা শুরু হবে বলে। কেননা, অমিয়ই এ ব্যাপারে চিঠি লিখেছিলেন কেন্দ্রীয় স্বাস্থ্য মন্ত্রকে। তাঁর আশা, এতে ছাত্রছাত্রীদের সুবিধাই হবে।

Med entrance exam time deferred by 4 hrs
Translation Error Worry Persists
The National Testing Agency (NTA), which will conduct its first medical entrance examination, has decided to postpone the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) from 10 am to 1pm in 2019.It will be held between 2pm and 5pm.
Students will immensely benefit because till this year, candidates under slot 1 were required to reach the designated exam centres by 830am. Students in slot II had to reach between 9.30am. Students who failed to reach the centres on time were refused entry and those who reported at 7.30am were not allowed to eat or carry tiffin till the exam was over.
Now, there will be no slots. Instead they will be given a deadline of 1.30pm. Amiya Maity, former teacher of SSKM hospital said, “This will be of great benefit of candidates.” Amitabha Saha – who had registered for NEET 2018, but had missed the opportunity for reaching the examination centre late by 15 minutes – said, “I could not reach on time as I had to travel 25km from North 24 parganas to a different district for the exam very early in the morning,” he said.
This year 18% GST and service charge will be levied on top of the exam fee.
Maity said NTA was not ready to take responsibility for translation errors. “Students from regional states are being discouraged to appear the exam in languages other than English,” he said.
This year, too, the exam will be conducted in 11 languages. “In case of any ambiguity in the translation of any question, its English version shall be treated as final, “the notification read. “Over the last three years, there have been several translation errors. I lost marks as I could not follow the English version,” said Saddam Mirza, a NEET aspirant.
Times View: t may be difficult to accommodate all demands but an all-India entrance exam should not be unfair to any section of students. All stakeholders should be given a proper hearing.
