BANGALORE: Candidates who had come prepared to write their undergraduate final year physiotherapy exams were asked to leave the exam hall within an hour after the exams started on Thursday.
The Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) Bangalore had scheduled the exams on September 11 and 12. Accordingly, many students turned up to write the exams. However, all of a sudden, the university asked the colleges to postpone the ongoing exams.
Dr S Sachidanand, Registrar (evaluation) of RGUHS told Express, “We got calls from many colleges as they had not received the co-rejoindum issued about the changed timetable. Many students could not appear for the exams. Following this, we decided to postpone the exams scheduled to be held on Thursday and Friday.”
Meanwhile, RGUHS had placed the circular on its website postponing the exams to September 15, 16 and 18. The circular says; “In some centres, the students have written exams for the question paper code 2720 (neuro physiotherapy) and those scripts are cancelled.” Sachidanand also said the university will issue fresh question papers and answer scripts.
Students said, “It is really an a inconvience due to the communication gap between the colleges and the university.” The co-rejoindum issued was to alert colleges of the timetable scheduled for Thursday and Friday.
