Dimapur, April 28: The circulation of fake Under Graduate Examination routine in the name of the Nagaland University by some miscreants caused uproar among college administrators and students in the State.
The All Nagaland College Students’ Union (ANCSU) was quick to condemn the same and inform that the UG exam routine being circulated in various social media platform is fake.
In a press release, the union strongly condemned the circulation of fake exam routine in the name of Nagaland University by some miscreants, which, it said, has severely disturbed the entire college fraternity.
ANCSU said it has confirmed (through telephonic conversation) from the Registrar, Nagaland University (NU) that no revised/new UG Exam routine has been issued by the NU as circulated in various social media platforms.
“At a time when the situation is unfavorable to everyone, targeting the students’ community with such invidious intention is highly condemnable and deserves befitting punishment under relevant law,” the union said while appealing to the law enforcing agencies to immediately book the culprits. It also called upon the students’ community to be vigilant of such hoax messages.
Meanwhile ANCSU has lauded the various agencies for coming forth to help the students community during the lockdown period. It also appreciated the various college authorities for extending all possible helps to the students at this time of unrest; particularly KROS College, Kohima for its exemplary gesture of notifying that the admission fee (both academic & hostel) will be exempted to students seeking admission to 1st semester, 2020. It hoped that such gesture will embolden other colleges to do the same or more.
The union informed that the University Grants Commission (UGC) has constituted two committees, one committee to look into issues related to examination and academic calendar, and another to look into issues related with promoting online education. The two committees have submitted their report on April 24 to UGC.
ANCSU informed the students’ community that after the final guidelines/advisories are issued by the UGC, the Nagaland University (NU) would notify the needful. It hoped that the NU will consider the facility limitations of the State and take appropriate steps to facilitate the exam and academic related matters. (Page News Service)
