DIMAPUR, AUG 16 (NPN) | Publish Date: 8/16/2020 12:37:27 PM IST

 The Eastern Nagaland College Students’ Union (ENCSU) through its media cell expressed surprise at the directorate of technical education (DoTE) making forms available online and collecting fees from individuals wishing to appear for the Nagaland State Entrance Examination (NSEE) 2020 for selecting candidates to allied training courses without any prior notification. 

Claiming that many candidates were not satisfied with the way the department had gone ahead in selecting NSEE candidates based on marks obtained in NBSE without any prior information, the union in a press release said the directorate could have notified in advance and should not have troubled the candidates to collect forms online and deposit examination fees, if it had no plan to conduct the exam. 

ENCSU said it was totally aware about the current pandemic situation in the State, but added that it was ethically and morally wrong to take undue advantage of the situation as the directorate could have still conducted NSEE online.

Pointing out that many students did not continue their degree courses and opted for coaching classes just to appear for NSEE, the union asked the directorate whether the directorate would compensate these students who wasted a year just for this exam. It also wanted to know from the directorate on what basis it had fixed the marks criteria for various allied courses. 

Asserting that all aspirants deserve a fair chance and opportunity, ENCSU demanded immediate intervention of the State government in the matter to ensure justice to students.

The union also appealed to the selected candidates to be aware of the situation while taking admission, while asking the government to respond before the completion of the admission process. 

It asked the government to redress the issue without delay and deliver justice to all the deserving students before the classes start in various colleges.

It may be mentioned that DoTE had on August 5 had stated that candidates wishing to undergo courses in agri and allied and paramedical courses against the State’s allotted seats that NSEE would not be held due to the current pandemic situation and restrictions.

Accordingly, DoTE director Er. Arjun Singh the Common Selection Board (CSB) on August 4 accorded the Merit List 2020 which was determined as per the approved Methodology of Normalization of Marks based on NBSE marks as BASE for selection of the candidates.
