Keeping the reports regarding the paper leak in the recently held BTech entrance test, Jamia Milia Islamia University has decided to re-conduct the examination for its BTech programme. The entrance test was held on June 13, and some of the teachers in the university have complaint that they have got emails of the engineering papers hours ahead of the actual examination.
In order to take precaution based on the reports, the university has also decided to cancel its entrance exam for Bachelor of Dental Sciences (BDS) that was scheduled for June 15.
According to Jamia spokesperson, Mukesh Ranjan, “A preliminary inquiry, based on the details available, hints at the possibility of a breach in the examination system with respect to BTech Entrance Test that was conducted on 13 June 2015. Keeping in view the interest of the students who took the entrance examination and to maintain highest degree of propriety and credibility of the examination process, the university administration has decided to cancel the above-mentioned test.”
According to Ranjan the fresh test of the B.Tech entrance tests would be June 27 and the BDS entrance examination test which was postponed would take place on June 25. Admit cards mentioning the following dates would be sent to the applicants for these two programmes by the university soon. All the required details would be put up on the website of the university and would be conveyed to every student through e-mails and SMS.
This year Jamia has for the first time joined hands with Computer Maintenance Corporation (CMC) which is a part of TCS (Tata Consultancy Services) for conducting the online admission procedure and other related works. Almost 39,654 students applied for BTech programmes this year and BDS invited 6603 candidates.
