Srinagar: Scores of post-graduate students of distance education on Monday failed to submit their online examination papers after the website developed a technical snag.
The PG students of Urdu Department pursuing their degrees through distance mode complained that the submit button to file their papers did not work while they were appearing in online examinations. The disappointed students contacted examiners at Kashmir University who advised them to send an application to get the issue addressed.
“Today we were frustrated and disappointed after we failed to submit our papers. The submit button developed some problems and didn’t work,” the students said.
The students were appearing in the third paper of the course titled ‘Urdu Nazam’. The online examinations, they said began on July 21.
“The examiners sent links to us through University Groups and we appeared in 60 minute multiple choice papers. Much to the frustration and shock of students, the submission button didn’t function and we failed to submit the paper,” the students added.
The students claimed that the Coordinator Exams Dr Irfan Aalam told them to forget about today’s paper and prepare for the next one.
When contacted Dr Altaf said that these students need to submit an application or send a mail on [email protected] so that their grievance could be addressed.
“There may be some technological issues and the problems arising out of those can be addressed,” he said. (KNT)
