Jamia Millia Islamia will conduct fresh entrance tests for B.Tech courses on June 27, the central university announced on Monday.
The announcement comes after allegations of a paper leak surfaced. The university will issue fresh admit cards to all the applicants who had appeared for its earlier test on June 13.
The university’s preliminary inquiry into the allegations of leak suggested a possibility of breach in the examination system with respect to the entrance test.
“Keeping in view the interests 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 earlier test,” Mukesh Ranjan, spokesperson for Jamia Millia Islamia, said.
The university has also decided to reschedule entrance test for Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS). The BDS entrance was scheduled on June 14. It will now be conducted on June 25.
“Fresh admit cards will be issued to all the applicants for these two academic programmes. Necessary details will be put up on the university’s website and will also be conveyed to every examinee through e-mail and SMS,” Ranjan added.
This time the university had outsourced administering tests, including B.Tech and BDS. “We outsourced a few of tests to computer maintenance corporation, a subsidiary of Tata consultancy services to ensure smooth conduct. The paper was set up internally,” Ranjan said.
