Tilka Manjhi Bhagalpur University
BHAGALPUR: A new News was on the ears of Bihar, when 94 students of the Tilka Manjhi Bhagalpur University (TMBU) could not write their last paper of the second semester postgraduate Hindi exam, as the question papers were not printed.
The second semester postgraduation exam schedule was announced in the second week of March. While exams of three papers had been conducted, it was the final paper which was held up Tuesday, as question papers could not be printed.
University sources, quoting the controller of examination, said the question papers were also not sent to him for initiating the printing process.
The vice chancellor has served a show cause notice on the controller of examination and the head of Hindi postgraduation department.
TMBU public relations officer (PRO) Ashok Thakur said the head of the department (HoD), Hindi, had blamed the goof up on the confusion created by introduction of the choice based credit system (CBCS).
“The CBCS was introduced to allow students flexibility to choose any subject (from science, arts or commerce streams) in the fourth paper. The Hindi HoD has claimed that printing of question papers could not be initiated as he was not aware which subjects the students opted for in the fourth paper,” Thakur added.
Earlier, shortage of answer books in the university had contributed to the delay in the degree part II examination by almost a year.The TMBU has struggled to adhere to its examination schedule.The university is yet to announce the new examination date.
