Peshawar university reschedules exam

PESHAWAR, June 27(Dawn): After violent protests by candidates who have not been given their roll number slips for B.A and B.Sc examinations commencing from June 27, the Peshawar university administration has rescheduled the examinations.

The university also made some changes in the examination schedule due to 'unavoidable circumstances'.

In a press release issued here on Tuesday, the administration said papers scheduled for June 27, 28, 29 and 30 would now be held on July 30, 31 and August 1 and 2, respectively.

The university said the rest of the schedule would remain unchanged and papers would be held as per the notified date sheet. The candidates who had been protesting for two days broke the protective iron grills of the secrecy section and smashed its windowpanes.

They chanted slogans against the administration.

A few students were injured when police used tear gas to disperse them.

It may be mentioned that some 61,000 forms were submitted, out of which the administration had rejected 2,000 papers.

Sources informed that only 20,000 candidates received their roll number slips despite the fact that the university had assigned TCS for the first time to deliver the slips.

"My sister failed to receive her roll number slip in time so I had to come all the way from Dir district to receive her slip," complained Islam Din, brother of a candidate.

The university, on the other hand, denied any mismanagement in the delivery of roll numbers slips by the university.

The press release said the administration had tried to facilitate the candidates but some people did not want to follow the new computerized system of examinations as it had blocked 'unfair means'. The controller of examination said that effective arrangements were made to ensure transparency in the examinations.

The administration claimed it had set up separate counters on the campus for smooth and in time delivery of the roll number slips to the candidates.
