Irony! Braving COVID-19 threat, students appear in exams but get wrong question paper

Early Times Report

Jammu, Sept 24: Braving COVID-19 threat, hundreds of students of 6th semester of 3-year graduation course on Thursday reached colleges to take examination but found wrong question papers, forcing the Jammu University authorities to cancel the examination.
Though the Jammu University authorities termed the mistake as “human error” but students asked when they make any mistake on answer sheets such as writing a wrong roll number, they lose one year but when the wrong is committed by University, it takes excuse of human error.
According to students of Jammu University 6th Semester, as per date sheet the examination of Ability Enhancement Compulsory Course (AECC) was scheduled to be held on 24th of September. The course is of 4 credits and as per one time exemption, students have to attempt only 16 marks out of the total 40 marks. In the AECC pattern, students can opt out of five languages Hindi, English Dogri, Urdu and Punjabi.
Out of five languages, students who opted for English language are many and when they got the question papers it turned out to be of English literature rather than English, which is of 6 credits and 80 marks. When the students across several colleges of Jammu province, which fall under Jammu University, informed the supervisory staff, they took up the matter with Jammu University authorities, which in turn cancelled the exam.
Sources said that the problem was caused by a printing error on the packed envelope of the question papers. The code of AECC is UENTS-601, while the code of English Literature is UENTC-601. On the packets the code of AECC UENTS-601 was printed while on the question paper copies, the code of English literature UENTC-601 was printed.
Controller Examination of Jammu University Prof. Rajnikant said that in the confidential section of University, during the packing of the question papers the error occurred. “An enquiry committee has been constituted, which will submit report in three days”, Prof. Rajnikant said.
About the scheduled examination of English Literature as the question papers have already been opened, Prof Rajnikant said that the examination would be conducted after all the exams but the committee would decide about it and the decisions would be notified on the University website.
Though the University claims that it was an error in printing but sources said that English literature has few hundred students but AECC (English) has few thousands students. “The printing of English Literature question papers is also done as per the estimation of AECC and it was error in printing and not during the packing”, an insider alleged, adding that whenever there would be error on part of students, the University authorities are reluctant to rectify the same but when it comes on their part they take the refuge in human error.
