Open letter to Controller of Examination, NU

What is wrong with our university today? It is in our conscience that something is wrong with the system. We the Bachelor of Education (B.Ed) batch 2012 of Nagaland College of Teacher Education (NCTE) Kohima started our academic session on 1st February 2012. We appeared our first semester examination from 25th June to 5th July 2012 and our Second semester i.e. final examination from 10th December to 12th December 2012. It may be mentioned here that the result of First Semester Exam was declared in the month of February 2013 i.e. six (6) months after the exam. Also the result of the Final Semester was declared only in the month of July 2013 and we waited for more than another six (6) months to get the result, where as the University Grant Commissions (UGC) rule is only for sixty (60) days i.e. two (2) months.

We were hoping that everything would be fine after the long wait but we are saddened to disclose that they were many unexpected mistakes found when we went to collect our mark sheets. It can be said that the errors cannot be referred to something as “printing mistakes”.
Some of the “worst” mistakes which were found on the mark sheets that really make us annoyed and disappointed are:
1. There were lots of spelling mistakes on the candidates’ names.
2. The candidates who were present on the examination day were marked absent.
3. The final semester exam was held in the month of December where as it was wrongly entered as June.
4. Registration numbers were wrongly entered.

Therefore, we urge and appeal the authority to look into the matter seriously and rectify the same at the earliest because it gives a clear picture that the University is playing with the students’ career. And the question that strikes our mind is for how long do we have to wait again?
