JNUSU protests amidst Entrance Test irregularity allegations

JNU to Reopen the Campus from 2 November in a Phased Manner

The Jawaharlal Nehru Student’s Union (JNUSU) has demanded an inquiry and resignation of the Vice-Chancellor with regard to the alleged irregularities in the varsity’s online entrance examinations.

The union has stated that at least two question papers of programs under the study of Linguistics Centre were found copied from different available sources online. They also happen to state that the questions in the exam paper for the Centre for Economic Studies and Planning (CESP), MA program, were substandard and sourced from the web.

The Jawaharlal Nehru University had recently introduced an online entrance examination for various courses for the current academic session to be held by the NTA (National Testing Agency). JNUSU has been critical of the move ever since it was announced. It claims that a lot of questions were found to have been copied from various websites and UGC-NET papers. Many questions that appeared were vague, often phrased poorly and some had more than one correct answer out of the given options, the student’s union claimed.

In related news, earlier, a student had written to the vice-chancellor of the varsity claiming that the exam papers of BA first year were leaked and circulated on WhatsApp. Also, the students who appeared for the political science paper noticed that the question paper was almost exactly the same that of a practice paper found on a website online. In conclusion, the rising voices of dissent have claimed that students, in general, have had to face difficulties at almost all stages of the entrance examination process right from the application up until the online test.

Hence the JNU student union has demanded an immediate judicial probe into the matter. The JNUSU is adamant about the restoration of JNU’s time tested offline entrance system. They demand the stepping down of the JNU vice-chancellor for the shocking leak, massive copying of question papers from online question banks whilst ruining careers and lives of students
