Srinagar : The students of Bachelor’s in Multi Media Production and Mass Communication (BMMMC) on Wednesday alleged Kashmir University of setting ‘out of syllabus papers’ in the ongoing second semester exams.
The students said that their two core papers viz Communication Research and Print Media Production were ‘out of syllabus’ and ‘above their standard’,
“The questions asked in these papers hardly matched our syllabus. It seemed like they haven’t even taken the syllabus in consideration.” Aaliya Shalla, a student from Govt Degree College Baramulla alleged.
“We were asked to name authors of statements, which weren’t related to our paper. It’s sheer injustice to not ask anything related to subject in the exam.” she added.
Students also hit out at the ‘unorderly’ set-up of Kashmir University, “First, the leaking of papers and now asking out of syllabus questions. It seems Kashmir University doesn’t bother about the students. Their system is unorderly and pathetic.” Faizan Qureshi, another student said.
Disappointed with the papers, the BMMMC persuing students are demanding the re-examination of these two papers,
“None of us could answer the questions well because we had no idea whatsoever about them. There is no better way than to hold re-examination of these two papers,” Aqib Nazir, student from Baramulla said.
When contacted, KU’s controller examination, Farooq Ahmad, he said that, “we will call experts and see whether the questions were out of syllabus or not.
The issue will be properly investigated but students need not to worry, they will be given marks for the question if the paper setter was at fault,” he said .
