Paper leak: New dates for cancelled Rajasthan University (RU) exams announced

Jaipur: Thousands of post graduate students are waiting for Rajasthan University (RU) to announce new dates for exams which were cancelled following arrests of professors and employees of secrecy cell in the paper leak case.  RU announced that several exams would be re-conducted, but is yet to announce the revised dates.

Five of the papers which were cancelled are:

  • BA Part – 3 Geography First (April 10)
  • MA (final) Geography of water resources, their management and utility (April 11)
  • BA part – 3 geography second (April 12)
  • MCom (previous) SBST (advance cost accounting) (April 13)
  • MA (final) Advance Geography of India (April 17)

RU officials said that they are in communication with the SOG.

“Re-conducting these exams is a long process. It will take time. We will announce the new schedule soon,” said an official.

Sources said that RU wanted to avoid the last-minute surprises. It was waiting if SOG would reveal more paper leaks. If the agency did, RU would have to reconduct those exams as well. So the officials are waiting for SOG to complete the investigation.

The cancellation of examination papers will cause delay in results.  As the RU will reconduct all leaked examinations, results will be delayed.

“We are yet to announce the new dates for examination that have been cancelled,” said the RU officer.

The news that exams were cancelled came as a shock to thousands of RU students.

The move to cancel the papers have left thousands of post graduate students confused.

“We don’t know when RU will announce the new dates and if the papers have been actually cancelled,” said Rohit Prajapat, a BA student.

The vice-chancellor cancelled these examinations after receiving a report from examination planning and monitoring committee

A total of 19 people have been arrested so far in connection with paper leak cases.
