Clash in B Com, CA exam timetable puts students in dilemma
April, 28th 2012
More than 4,000 students pursuing Bachelors of Commerce (B Com) in various affiliated colleges of Devi Ahilya Vishwavidhyalaya (DAVV) are in a dilemma as the exam timetable of B Com are clashing with that of the Chartered Accountant (CA) examinations scheduled to be held next month.
This has come to the fore at a meeting of principals with the varsity top officials here on Wednesday. Principals took up the issue on behalf of their students, who would soon appear for university examinations as well as CA examinations. The university had called the meeting of principals in the wake of successful conduct of examinations and to take views of college principals on the issue.
However, the matter took a turn when few principals raised the issue of the clash of examination dates of B Com and CA. The college principals rued that the varsity should take care of the examination dates as they give admission to the students promising that their schedule to appear for CA exam will not be affected. However, offending the principals view, DAVV registrar R D Musalgaonkar said, "We do not decide the time table keeping in mind schedule of other examination."
This annoyed the principals and they said the varsity should give them the task to make examination time-table.
DAVV also granted funds in advance to the colleges for conduct of examination.
DAVV vice-chancellor Dr Rajkamal also asked the principals to inform the varsity immediately if there are any problems related to question papers or problems during the conduct of examination so that appropriate action is taken on priority.
