JNUSU alleges anomaly in conduct of entrance exam

Says candidates faced difficulties

The JNU Students’ Union on Monday wrote to University Vice-Chancellor M. Jagadesh Kumar alleging that there were several discrepancies in the conduct of the JNU entrance examination that was conducted as a computer-based test for the first time this year. The university had outsourced the conduct of the test to the National Testing Agency that held it between May 27 and May 30.

The JNUSU in its letter said that students had to face difficulties at all stages of the entrance examination right from the application process to the online test.

They alleged that the exam paper of BA 1st year cluster one of Russian, Spanish, French and German held on May 28 were found to be circulating on WhatsApp and that the BA paper that came was out of syllabus that was prescribed in the prospectus by JNU administration for students.

“The latest in the set of problems is the wide-scale errors in the answer key provided by the NTA. It is extremely unfortunate and unprofessional that the answer key of all the subjects from BA to Ph.D had errors,” the JNUSU said.

The JNUSU demanded that the administration immediately look into the concerns raised by them and that JNU’s time tested offline entrance system be brought back.
