A goof up derailed the exam process at Gujarat University (GU) on Wednesday (Dec 7). Students appearing for the BA first semester exam for Gujarati were in for a shock. Their question papers had failed to make it to exam centres. A subsequent inquiry revealed that the correct question paper had not yet been printed.
On Wednesday examinees were in for a surprise. They were given the question papers for Thursday (8th Dec). This mistake was repeated in 65 colleges, affecting 3,500 students. GU had to cancel the exam and reschedule it for December 9. The incident annoyed the students as they raised their voices against the goof up and for being kept on tenterhooks for an hour before the exam cancellation was announced. This issue has got college administrations demanding their pound of flesh. Recently, GU had imposed a Rs 1 lakh fine on a teacher who set a paper and put the same question twice. Then there were 10 colleges which were fined for not making exam invigilators available. We think, now GU should initiate disciplinary action on its own administrative staff and those responsible for this goof up which has affected so many students, said the principal of a college that was fined recently. GU authorities are quick to take credit for any achievements, but here the goof up seems no body’s business or responsibility, said a student. On Wednesday at 2.30 pm when students were at their exam centres, college authorities opened the sealed envelopes containing the question papers they realized that instead of the Gujarati language paper, another paper had been sent instead. GU officials later conducted a probe into the matter and found that the paper-setter had sent Thursday’s paper instead. We might initiate punitive action against the paper-setter. Our probe has revealed that both the paper-setter and authorities of the exam department were at fault. The paper-setter will be served a notice and other officials responsible for this problem will be pulled up, said GU officials.
