Aspirants for the B.Com course are in a fix as two prominent colleges of the city have fixed the same date for the entrance examination. Both National PG College (NPGC) and Isabella Thoburn (IT) College have announced the same date, June 22 - for the entrance, giving tough time to students and their parents. Even the timings of the two tests are overlapping. While the exam at NPGC is scheduled on June 22 from 11.00 am to 12.30 pm, in IT College, the exam will be held on the same date from 9.00 am to 12.00 noon. "We have approached both the colleges and no one is ready to shift the dates. We requested them to change the time, if not the date, but they aren't agreeing," said a worried parent.
A student who has secured above 85% marks in class XII said, "I do not want to take a risk. Hence, I filled up forms in both the colleges. And now, both of them are adamant on not changing the dates. We request them to look into the matter in the interest of the students.'' When asked to comment, principal, IT College, ES Charles said, "We have scheduled the exam from 9.00 am to 12.00 noon. We also got several complaints from the students and parents regarding clash of exams but as of now we really can't help as we have many outstation candidates appearing for the exam," adding that students who finish early can leave the examination hall and appear for the exam at National PG College. The college authorities claimed that they scheduled the exam first. "We first scheduled the exam on June 24 but it was clashing with some other exam. Therefore, we can't do anything,'' said Charles. Officials at NPGC too gave a similar comment. Admission coordinator Rakesh Jain said, "We had declared the dates well in advance and before IT College. We definitely think of the students but cannot do anything now.'' College officials also informed that this is not the first time that the exam dates for B.Com is clashing. "It is a routine affair every year. Only after we declare the date and time, IT keeps it the same,'' said a college official.
