BBA students accuse KU admin of framing ‘copy pasted’ question paper

SRINAGAR: The University of Kashmir has allegedly put the career of scores of students at stake by framing “out of syllabus” question paper downloaded from the internet in the ongoing undergrad 6th semester examination.
The aggrieved students of 2016 batch pursuing Bachelors’ in Business Administration (BBA) at different degree colleges of Kashmir and affiliated with the KU told Kashmir Reader that they could attempt hardly any question in the ‘Material Management’ Multiple Choice Question paper, which was held on February 2 as the varsity had “copy pasted the questions from an online portal”.
None of questions from the paper
figured in the KUs’ prescribed
book for the paper, they alleged.
“We had thoroughly gone
through the prescribed text, but
none of the questions was asked
from the book. We came to know
later from the internet that they
had just copy pasted the objectives
from the online site,” an aggrieved
student alleged.
In protest against the out of
syllabus question paper, students
from at least two colleges- GDC
Bemina and Women’s College,
Nawakadal boycotted the paper
altogether and walked out of the
examination halls, a student said.
The aggrieved students, who also
lodged a protest at Srinagar’s Press
Enclave on Thursday, demanded
a re-examination of the said paper
immediately in view of the impending
KU PG entrance test tentatively
scheduled by the varsity administration
by ending March.
They further alleged that the
concerned officials at KU, whom
they approached several times
since the gaffe, had given them a
cold shoulder.
“They in fact expressed helplessness
saying the Vice Chancellor was
out of station,” a student alleged.
The aggrieved students wondered
how their careers could be
put on the backburner at a time
when they were already running
late on their degrees by one
academic year altogether and the
overhead PG entrance test.
While Controller Examinations
at KU, Prof Farooq Ahmad Mir was
not available for his comments over
the matter, Registrar of the varsity,
Prof Nisar Ahmad Mir
