As many as 40 students could not appear for the AIMS test for management admissions (Atma), after failing to provide required documents at the time of reporting for the exam at the Dhole Patil college of engineering, Kharadi.
Despite repeated attempts, the school management of the exam centre could not be reached.
Mahesh Sawale, a Pimpri resident said, “When we reached the examination centre we were asked to provide two extra copies of the hall ticket and registration form. We had one original copy with us.”
He further added, “There was no option where we could get the photocopies done nearby. We travelled more than three km in search of a photocopying centre and got it done. When we returned, the reporting time was over and the invigilators did not allow us to sit for the exam.”
“Despite our repeated requests, those managing the exam centre did not pay heed to any of our demands,” Sawale added.
Sujit Lokhande, guardian of a student who was also not allowed to sit for the exam, said, “This is absolutely irresponsible behaviour of the management of the exam centre. They even refused to talk to us after we returned with the photocopies.”
Lokhande accused the management of wasting a complete academic year of 40 students.
Atma is a credible, comprehensive and single-window test for admissions to numerous post-graduate management programmes like MBA, PGDM, MCA and MMS among others.
