Kolkata: In what seems to be the repetition of the same question paper goof-up, the Political Science, second half of the Part 2 examination under the University of Calcutta was cancelled on Thursday.
According to the examination schedule, on Thursday was the Political Science examination of its first half. But during the examination, the students were given the second half question paper. This mistake was realized once all the question papers were distributed. As a result, chaos and panic spread among the students. The students then resorted to protest within their College Street campus. The students protested while Partha Chatterjee, the education minister was present within the campus for the inauguration of in-campus buses. While some students presumed to have appeared for the examination by studying the wrong syllabus, while the others considered this as a mockery and got annoyed.
Immediately after knowing the question paper goof-up, the University’s exam controller decided to immediately cancel the examination. He assured of seeing how such a mistake could have occurred. For this the examination remains cancelled. The authorities of the Calcutta University have assured to inform the rescheduled examination date soon.
Three days ago on June 5, the Bengali honours Paper IV was cancelled of the second year students after the question paper of the previous day’s exam, ie, third paper, was given to the students, instead of the actual paper. The rescheduled date of this exam is yet to be given.
