DNA IMPACT: Admit card glitch forces University of Rajasthan to postpone 3 exams


University of Rajasthan has postponed the dates of first three final undergraduate examinations, as a response to issues related to admit cards of several students.

The exams scheduled to be held on March 08, 09, and 10, 2018, will now be conducted on a future date which has not been decided yet.

“It is decided that these exams will be conducted later. This is because some students were unable to download their permission letters. Others, who had downloaded the letters, had lots of mistakes in them like wrong subject and different spelling of the names. The delay will give administration time to solve the issues,” said HS Palsania, chief proctor, University of Rajasthan.

In addition to this, the university has withdrawn the fees being taken for the downloading of permission letters or making any rectification on the same.

“Students were charged Rs 150 for correction and Rs 500 for the hard copy, which has been withdrawn now. Everything will be done free of cost,” Palsania informed.

It is to be noted that several students protested at the University on Tuesday for the issue, after which the decision was taken collaboratively by chief proctor, controller of examination (CoE), and convener of examination.

“Students protested all day until action was taken on their demands. They can now give an application to CoE to receive admit cards,” said Vinod Jakhad, a student at RU.
