Zoology question paper lands up on WhatsApp!

According to sources, the Zoology (Hons) paper was shared by students using social networking app WhatsApp. The college authorities came to know about the same half an hour before the examination was scheduled to be over. A complaint was registered by college authorities in Maurice Nagar police station against six students who were allegedly involved in sharing the exam paper.

“A complaint was registered by college authorities against four boys and two girls. The matter has been refereed to DU’s internal committee. Action would be taken when matter would be handed over to us by the university,” said a source at Maurice Nagar police station. Though the complaint has also been forwarded to the University, the administration has completely shirked off its responsibility in the matter.

“The matter has been reported to the Unfair Means Committee in the examination department. Since the incident happened at college level, so it’s up to college to conduct any investigation on the same,” said Malay Neerav, DU’s media coordinator and Joint Dean Students’ welfare.

When asked about the paper being available on WhatsApp and thus possibly to a larger group, he refused to give a reply.

In this year’s semester examination, the lacklustre performance of the examination branch has repeatedly come to light, starting with old question paper given to students of B.Com of School of Open Learning during the annual examinations in June being distributed to the students appearing for winter semester examination.

After that, third semester students of B.A (Honours) Hindi were given a paper which was completely out of syllabus. It was also reported that Micro Economics paper which was meant for visually challenged students was tougher than what was given even to general category students. Even after several attempts, Khalsa College principal, Jaswinder Singh, was not available for clarification on the matter.
