Univ exam goof up - where does the buck stop?


Mumbai- Mumbai University had scheduled Meteorology paper of M.A. in Geography on 21st November which created chaos among students. This was because different papers of same subject were given to the students. Palghar, Dadar and Bandra college students got a paper based on old syllabus while Ghatkopar’s Somaiya college students received paper based on a new syllabus. Chhatrabharti Student Union’s head Lokesh Vidya Punjaji and Rashtrawadi Students Union’s head Kiran Sawant met controller of examination Deepak Wasawe who said, “We upload same set of papers across examination centers. This goof up is from colleges end and not from us. However, we will take the needed action and students need not to worry”. Despite this fiasco, same problem occurred at Bandra’s National College on 26th November during an Economics paper. However, when the student’s union met the controller of examination he once again got away with the same excuse.
