National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) Nagaland, the student wing of the Indian National Congress (INC), has sharply reacted to the Directorate of Technical Education (DoTE)’s decision to not conduct Nagaland State Entrance Examination (NSEE) 2020 for selection of candidates to undergo courses in Agri & Allied and Para-Medical.

DoTE though a press note had informed the conduct of NSEE 2020 was not considered to be held due to the current COVID-19 pandemic conditions and restrictions and instead the recommendations of the constituted Committee on the Methodology for determining the Merit List 2020 was approved.

Accordingly, DoTE said the Common Selection Board (CSB) of August 4, 2020, accorded the Merit List 2020 determined as per the “approved Methodology of Normalization of Marks” based on NBSE marks as BASE for selection of the candidates.

NSUI state unit said that the directorate’s decision has not only flouted the rules, but also shattered the dreams and the career of hundreds of students.  

The student body queried as to what prompted the department to give away the seats without conducting exams through the NSEE. 

NSUI also demanded the nullification of the notification no. DTE/ESTT-2/12/2018-19(pt) issued by the DoTE and ensure free and fair test at an appropriate time. It said that the provisional candidates were selected basing on the normalization of marks obtained in HSSLC. 

However, it said that there had been no mention of such procedure for selection anywhere in the NSEE application form 2020. NSUI also said that the directorate’s notification has “come as a shock” for the hundreds of students who were preparing for the entrance examination. 

Further, NSUI maintained that many students have taken a year gap to prepare for the exams while taking coaching classes. It stated that students from the weak economical background, who could not fare well in the board exams, had put in extra effort to get through NSEE for further studies.
