Early Times Report
SRINAGAR, May 16: Chaos and confusion was written on the faces of the candidates who appeared in the entrance test of the Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Kashmir couple of days back.
Sources told Early Times that the university authorities failed to classify the question paper set out for the subjects at the time of entrance test held on May 14 at the university campus. The glaring error from the university authorities virtually puzzled the students and they were at total loss.
"In the past the question paper for both the mathematics and statistics subjects was one but it was properly classified. While 80 questions related to the mathematics the rest 80 were of the statistics subject. The aspirants were asked to attempt either of the two according to the preference set out by them," said sources.
Sources said for the entrance test for this year no such provision was made and 160 questions were put to the aspirants without any differentiation whatsoever. The aspirants were totally confused since they could not figure out the choice among the two subjects.
"There was total anarchy at the examination centre and the students were the ultimate sufferers. For no fault of theirs the students were left stranded between devil and deep sea. In such a manner valuable time of the students was lost," said sources.
Sources said the Dean of the concerned departments did not communicate to the examination authority that the paper should be set in such a manner that the candidates chose between either of the two subjects. On their part the examination authority also did not devote their attention to the issue and printed the papers as sent by the concerned department.
Sources said that many of the aspirants left the examination centres and the authorities were left baffled. These aspirants accused the varsity authorities of playing with their career and said that the university authorities acted in a care free manner.
Sources said that it was only after severe criticism that the university authorities cancelled the entrance test and announced that the test would be conducted afresh.
