Delay in question paper distribution stirs protest
Sukkur: Girl candidates of B. Com-I protested on Tuesday
against a 40 minutes delay in receiving question papers of business
statistics and mathematics in the examination centre established at the
Government Girls Degree College of Sukkur.
According to angry
students, no reason was given for this inordinate delay from the scheduled
time of 9am.
However, sources said late arrival of the external concerned had caused the delay.
The candidates were expecting a compensation of 45 minutes, but they
were shocked when the external told invigilators to collect answer
sheets 10 minutes before the closure time.
No one came to their rescue, they complained.
Some girls protested and asked for extra time to complete their paper,
but the external did not budge an inch and the staff continued to
collect their copies by force.
The external also threatened
some of the protesting students that if they did not keep silent, they
would be charged with copying, cheating and misconduct.
paper of business statistics and mathematics paper is considered to be
the most difficult paper among B.Com part-I papers, so the delay caused
considerable agony and resentment.
Invigilators informed the
protesting students that the delay was caused due to the late arrival
of the external and it was not their fault.
Many girl students
were seen weeping as they were unable to fully cope with the paper hours.
Madam Aftab, who is in-charge of the examination centre, first avoided
listening to the students but after some time, she told them to contact
the university authorities for this problem.
A number of
students came in contact with journalists on this issue. This
correspondent rang a number of times Shah Abdul Latif University
Vice-Chancellor Nelofar Shaikh on her cell phone, but failed to receive
an answer. Dawn
