The University of Mumbai woke up to the fact that dispatching question papers a day before the examination was an unhealthy practice that had gone on for too long. So, Thursdays, 26th April, 2012, T.Y.B.M.S paper for Operations Research was sent to exam centres 15 minutes before the paper was to begin. The Board of Examinations (BoE) that met on Thursday, 26th April, 2012, at the university’s Kalina campus deliberated on several models for sending the question papers to all its exam centres. We have discussed several means through which question papers can be sent just an hour before the exam begins to all our centres, said pro vice-chancellor Naresh Chandra.
There are, however, several questions that the BoE currently has no answers for. One, if all vehicles are loaded with the question paper packets at the same time and how would they reach colleges in Konkan in time On the other hand, with the vagaries of power in rural Maharashtra, can a copy of the question papers be sent electronically The BoE also discussed the manner in which the states SSC and HSC boards deliver question papers : it sends them to a main centre in the locality and then asks faculty from the nearby schools or junior colleges to pick up their sets an hour before the exam. After the International Finance paper leaked on Wednesday, 25th April, 2012 the university took back all question paper packets; they have been store din a room so that the inquiry committee can assess them and trace the source of the leak. The seal of the packets that were returned from Wilson College and Rutumbara College, sources said, were broken.
The university on Thursday, 26th April, 2012 called all 58 T.Y.B.M.S exam centres around 12 noon and informed principals that they would be supplied with new question papers. The printing press was alerted and the second question that was kept in reserve was printed afresh and distributed, except to far-flung centres where the question was e-mailed or faxed, said university officials. The entire exercise was conducted between 11.20 AM and 2.45 PM.It was done to understand the university’s preparedness, added Chandra.
