Hindustan Times (Gurugram) - - Gurugram -

The Jawa­har­lal Nehru Univer­sity (JNU) on Fri­day de­clared that the com­puter-based en­trance ex­am­i­na­tions for un­der -grad­u­ate, post­grad­u­ate, MPhil and PhD cour­ses, sched­uled to be held in the last week of De­cem­ber, will be held in May 2019.

Last year, JNU had shifted the en­trance ex­am­i­na­tion from MayJune to De­cem­ber. This year, the univer­sity changed the for­mat of the en­trance ex­am­i­na­tion to mul­ti­ple choice ques­tions (MCQ). The move was op­posed by some fac­ulty mem­bers.

In his state­ment, JNU reg­is­trar Pramod Ku­mar said, “The VC in­formed the AC mem­bers that a vast ma­jor­ity of fac­ulty mem­bers have en­thu­si­as­ti­cally ex­tended their co­op­er­a­tion by sub­mit­ting MCQ papers to the ad­mis­sions of­fice in time… The AC took se­ri­ous note of non-co­op­er­a­tion and non-com­pli­ance by a few cen­tres and the School of Arts and Aes­thet­ics, which has de­clines to set a MCQ pa­per… The AC has rec­om­mended dis­ci­plinary ac­tion against de­fault­ing fac­ulty mem­bers as per the rules of the univer­sity.”

The JNU teach­ers’ as­so­ci­a­tion, mean­while, al­leged that no dis­cus­sion on for­mat of the en­trance ex­am­i­na­tion was al­lowed dur­ing the meet­ing on Fri­day.
