With Jadavpur University (JU) planned to begin classes from July 31 — trailing Calcutta University by 21days — and dates for composed tests put off by seven days, a few employees currently think about whether the modalities associated with the confirmation procedure can be done without trade off in such scramble.
According to the prior calendar, the typical hole between shutting of online application and confirmation tests was around 10 days. From that point, justify records are distributed inside the following 10 days. The affirmation procedure begins after another fortnight. Once the advising is finished, classes start following seven days. “Since time is greatly short now, the college should decrease the time between distribution of legitimacy rundown and start of the confirmation procedure. Indeed, even classes should initiate promptly subsequent to directing gets over,” said Partha Pratim Ray of the physics office.
It is here that few understudies are raising protests. “There are numerous competitors who are trying to take confirmation in JU college classes from regions and even different states. Shouldn’t something be said about them?” asked Avik Chakraborty, an understudy of human expressions workforce. Logic understudy Suddhasatya Guha Roy included: “The time between distribution of legitimacy rundown and guiding will be lacking for anybody with his/her name on the legitimacy rundown to touch base in Kolkata and take an interest in the affirmation procedure.
“The teachers had a meeting with the admission committee on Thursday. The admission process is time-consuming and there has already been a lot of chaos. The process requires a lot of space, but rooms aren’t available. There’s no idea regarding who will be the external teachers involved in the procedure. We do not know how the questions will be prepared.” He pointed out that the current ambiguity will not even allow candidates to know if the question pattern will remain the same or it will change.
According to English faculty member Nilanjana Gupta, the entire process not only takes a lot of time but also requires a lot of manpower and coordination. “The departments are trying their best to accomplish this task and I’m sure we will be able to pull it off,” she said. Dean of arts, Subhashis Biswas, also assured that the admission process will be smooth.
On Friday, Jadavpur University Teachers’ Association (JUTA) also expressed its reservations over the new admission process, which allows external experts to be involved in preparing question papers to correcting the answer scripts, and submitted a letter of protest to vice-chancellor Suranjan Das.
