Third semester Biotech students appearing for their Plant Tissue Culture exam on December 15 observed the unseemly attitude of the Panjab university officials, as they were handed question papers consisting the questions of the Genetics exam.
Students reached the examination hall as per schedule and were handed over the question papers at 2:15 which is the official time. It is then that the students were baffled to see the questions. Not a single question but the entire question paper was of the exam held on December 8.
“It was very unprofessional on the part of the authorities” said Chandan Aggarwal, a student of Biotech from GGDSD College, “we had to wait for around an hour for the revised and correct question papers to come and were further given the allotted time of three hours to complete the paper” he added.
A few days back the students of B.com second year students were left in disbelief when their Business mathematics and statistics paper was not as per the guidelines of the Panjab University. B.com Students did protest in that case and we might as well see the biotech students complain about this not very good way of handling the exams.
Panjab University has been ranked as the best University in India, ahead of Delhi University by some renowned grading agencies and has even been ranked as the 25Th best university in Asia. Such behaviour of the officials during the exams is not what such high graded university offers. This is surely to dampen the image of the University.
