SRINAGAR The students have complained of getting poorly printed examination papers of Skill Enhancement Course during an exam of the second year graduate course here and even alleged that some papers were provided on Whattsapp at the centres here.
Students complained that not only did Kashmir University forgot to send examination papers, but later after send them on WhatsApp that too an hour late. The papers were of Skill Enhancement Course under Regional Planning and Development. When these papers were printed, they were unreadable.
A grim situation was faced by 4th-semester students of 2nd year batch 2016 at different examination centres including Government College for Women Maulana Azad Road, Amar Singh College here after the goof up.
The students also said that the answer sheets were taken away from them almost half an hour before.
These students who were visibly frustrated narrated the ordeal here.
We were left petrified on Thursday as the Kashmir University had forgotten to send the question papers of the Skill Enhancement Course under Regional Planning and Development subject to the examination centres. The paper was scheduled to be held at 2 pm. The duration of the paper was 2 hours but papers were snatched from us half an hour before. It was hard to decipher the paper due to its poor pint quality. It was bound to happen as the Varsity had sent the paper through WahtsApp, the students said.
We are sure that our paper was set hurriedly and sent through WhatsApp. How can Kashmir University officials be so callous and play with the future of the students, they said and demanded stern action against the officials.
The protesting students who were carrying question papers in their hands demanded re-examination of the said paper.
Controller Examinations, KU, Prof Farooq Ahmad Mir said that he would look into the matter.
