High drama was witnessed at Khalsa College for Women, when around 13 students reached the college to appear in the BA (Semester ) political science paper on Tuesday. The students were shocked to find that the college authorities had already conducted the exam on May 20.

Panjab University had revised the dates for several exams, but few students reached the college according to the old datesheet. Students who missed the exam alleged that the college authorities did not put up the revised date sheet on the notice board.

On April 10, the Panjab University had updated the datesheet of many courses and again on May 1 it revised the dates of a few papers.

Jagjeevan Kaur, a private student, said, “No college authority informed us about the revised datesheet. I was shocked to know that I have missed an exam. All the other students are also upset. If the University will not give us another chance, what will we do.”

Principal Mukti Gill said, “We have put up the revised datesheet on the college notice board and 305 students appeared in the exam on May 20. Due to change in dates for this exam, a handful students missed appearing in the exam.”

The principal added that they have informed the Controller of Examination, Panjab University, Chandigarh regarding these students and are hopeful that they will give another chance to the students.
