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.
The 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
