J&K govt orders inquiry into CET cancellation
Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir government has ordered an inquiry into the last month goof-up by the Board of Professional Entrance Examination (BOPEE) leading to cancellation and subsequent rescheduling of the Common Entrance Test (CET) this year.
Secretary Animal and Sheep Husbandry Department MA Bukhari was appointed as the inquiry officer yesterday and was directed to look into "various aspects related to the conduct of CET 2013 by the BOPEE on June 22 and 23," an official spokesman said on Thursday.
Last month, the BOPEE had to cancel the examination of Chemistry paper and postpone the Biology paper of the CET due to its negligence which led to the leakage of the Biology paper a day ahead of its scheduled exam.
The BOPEE took the action after it was reported that invigilating staff at one of the centres in Srinagar on June 22 had distributed Biology paper instead of Chemistry paper.
Due to the mess up, thousands of candidates aspiring to get into various professional courses like MBBS, BDS, Engineering, BVSc and BSc (Agriculture) were left in great distress, even as the BOPEE rescheduled the examination of both the papers on July 27 and 28.
The spokesman asked the general public to come forward with comments, views and suggestions so that the inquiry is taken to its logical conclusion.
"Comments, views, suggestions have been invited from the general public for purposes of facilitating the inquiry and for arriving at logical and reasonable conclusions," the spokesman said.
He said any person(s) in possession of any information or willing to provide any comments, suggestions or views may either furnish the same in person or through e-mail (ashcommsecy@gmail.Com) by August 2.
