There seems to be no end to the goof ups haunting the Panjab University corridors.


After the recent blunder, where Punjabi exam of BA final year got repeated, now students from the department of laws have submitted a representation to the controller of examination (CoE) for a similar 'blunder' in their exam.

In their Environmental and Wild Life Protection Law exam held on Friday, they have alleged that it was out of syllabus and not as per the prescribed examination pattern.

They submitted that the unit I contained 4 sub-parts and according to the syllabus two questions should have been from section I and two from section II.

However, in the question paper, three sub-parts of question I were from section I of the syllabus and section II was not considered at all.

Students alleged that some parts of the paper were out of syllabus and questions for as many as 30 marks were not as per the prescribed pattern.

PU authorities have, however, said that they would look into the representation.

The Punjabi paper for BA final Punjabi got repeated on April 27. Besides, mathematics paper for BA and BSc had also repeated earlier. Also at one instance, the cost accountancy paper of B.Com was out of syllabus. Students since then have been protesting, after which the university authorities decided to hold the exam again.
