PRIVATE STUDENTS in capital seeking to appear for examinations of summer 2007 of the Barkatullah University might face difficulty in finding examination centres of their choice with number of colleges – mainly those in New Bhopal, refusing to entertain private students.
The registrar of the BU, Dr Sanjay Tiwari said that government colleges, save the autonomous colleges, couldn’t refuse to entertain private students as candidates appearing from their college.
Still the colleges are actually sending back private candidates with the excuse that their quota of students is full.
The registrar also assured that the university had taken everything into consideration and the private students would not face problem regarding exam centres.
However there are reports that, apart from the Government Sarojini Naidu Girls’ PG College (Nutan College), State Law College and MLB College – that are autonomous – Naveen College and MVM College have also refused to entertain private students who wanted to opt for these colleges as exam centres.
They have reportedly told candidates that there are slots available with them and that they are short on staff and infrastructure.
However, the registrar said that conducting exams and supporting the entire process is responsibility of affiliated colleges and they cannot shy away from the responsibility.
