PU master's students complain

LAHORE, July 21: The Punjab University's Registration Branch did not send roll number slips to all the candidates of Masters degree exams and many of the ones it had sent did not have the right details of the candidates, learnt on Friday.

Many candidates complained that they had received roll number slips with their names and details but not their pictures while some others said that they had received roll number slips of other candidates and not theirs.

PU Registration Branch deputy registrar Iqbal Khalil admitted that the branch had received many complaints of wrong details and pictures on roll number slips. He said his department had not made any mistakes in placing pictures on roll number slips. He said the institutions that sent registration forms had pasted wrong pictures on them. He said the PU had not withheld any roll number slip and had sent all of them on the correct addresses and in time. He said that the issue of wrong names on slips could have been the fault of university officials. He said the Registration Branch was solving candidates' problems regarding mix-ups. He said that in many cases the department had issued roll number slips instantly on complaints.

PU Controller of Examination Prof Taqi Zahid butt said that the PU's examination system was computerised and there was little chance of mistakes. He said the examiners had the right to take action against candidates with fake roll number slips. He did not rule out the possibility of mistake and said that the purpose of sending roll number slips beforehand was that if any candidate had a complaint, he could resolve the issue in time.

Rafaqat Ali, a student of MSc Zoology in Science College on Wahdat Road, said that the Registration Branch had sent him a roll number slip with his name on it, but the picture of someone else. He said that when he went to the examination centre, the examiners said that his roll number slip was fake and threatened to file a case against him. He said that when he contacted the Registration Branch, its officials told him to get confirmation certificates from the institutions from where he had passed his bachelor degree and intermediate certificate. He said he was not the only one who faced the problem, adding that many other students he knew also had such faults on their roll number slips.

Shumaila, a student of MA from Sialkot, said that she could not get her roll number slip on the due date and had missed her papers because she did not have her roll number slip. She said that she visited the university, but the officials were unhelpful and her trip was a waste of time.

Adil Aziz, A student of MA Islamic Study from Sargodha, said that the PU had sent him the roll number slip of one Amir Sultan and he came to Lahore to hand over the slip to Sultan.

An examiner at the PU's Examination Centre, requesting anonymity, said that he had received many cases of candidates with wrong pictures or wrong details on their roll number slips. He said that he had to expel such candidates from the examination centre since he could not accept such slips according to the rules. Daily times
