While appreciating the introduction of the Online delivery of question papers by the Nagaland University, the Private College Teachers Forum Kohima expressed disheartenment at the continued errors by the Nagaland University and those engaged in printing question papers.
Referring to the online delivery question paper-fiasco, Forum president C. Sivinir Terhujah and general secretary Gopal Chetre expressed sadness that it was implemented without conducting any trial for the benefit of centers where exams were to be conducted and where no proper facilities were available “until the last moment”.
Besides non availability of facilities and not conducting proper training for adopting the new system, the Forum also pointed out that the NU authorities have been making continual errors in almost all question papers.
Citing examples, the Forum said the heading pattern of question papers was not at all uniform as the question papers did not even have University code, which was mandatory.
Secondly, the Forum pointed out that question paper headings were different and having mistakes even in the subjects and paper numbers.
Also it expressed disappointment over the state of University affairs where Modern Indian Language (MIL) for Tenyidie exams for BA-II had to be postponed and that questions for elective Tenyidie Paper-I were set only for ’90 marks’ instead of ‘100 marks’ .
Besides this, the Forum also expressed sadness that question papers had ‘unaccountable clerical errors’ and sent to examination centers “without undergoing proper moderation and proof reading” thereby containing untold mistakes, while some of the question papers did not even have the question numbers or marks.
In the light of the above anomalies in the examinations already conducted,the Forum said it was apprehensive about the question papers for the remaining subjects.
The Forum said in consideration of the welfare of the career of thousands of students in general and the reputation of the only UGC recognized University in the state, it urged upon the University authorities to properly examine the question papers before being sent for conduct of examinations.
