Friday became 'Friday the 13th ' for first year MBA students studying in various colleges affiliated to University of Pune. Students were suppose to give online examination of certain subjects but due to slow server, they were forced to put their pen down and quit the examination.
However, authorities were quick to bounce on students' complain, and they have decided to re-conduct the examination once the speed of the server is re-stored.
BE Khedkar, Dean, Management faculty says "The online examination scheduled for morning was conducted smoothly, with around 11,368 students taking the 25 marks objective test. When the same number of students appeared for the same examination in the afternoon, the server started getting slow. After hearing lots of complain from the students and trying really hard to restored the speed of the server, we decided to cancel the examination. Since, lots of students fail to give the examination, the University of Pune has decided to re-conduct the examination after re-storing the speed of the server."
According to the vice-chancellor of Pune University, Wasudeo Gade, few glitches are very common in any examination and there is no full proof plan to make all examinations a smooth ride. He explained The university has undertaken massive online reforms as proposed by the government. Some minor glitches are bound to happen as everybody is new to the system. We are taking utmost care that such errors are not repeated in future."
