Dozens of students staged a protest at Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad (JNTUH) on Monday for the technical goof-up in the recently declared E-CET results.
The TS-ECET qualified students raised slogans against the university and demanded a re-examination on Monday afternoon even as the university officials were busy in declaring the Telangana Eamcet results inside the UGC-HRDC auditorium on the campus. The students were not convinced with the May 20 results. They claimed that the result was incorrect. "I attempted all the questions in the examination. But when I checked the OMR sheet, it showed that almost 60 questions were shown as not attempted," said a student Mohammed Abiq.
"Out of the total 200 marks, answers for questions totalling only 80 marks have been released by the university. We are not sure about the answers of the other questions," said another student.
The exam which was conducted online on May 6, was delayed due to some technical glitch. While the exam was scheduled to begin at 2 pm, it started only at 5 pm at several centers. Students alleged that at some test centres such as St Peters and Vardhaman engineering Colleges, among others, the examination went on till 9 pm.
Many of the students also raised concerns over the release of primary key.
Reacting to the allegations, the JNTUH vice-chancellor Venugopal Reddy said that there was absolutely no problem with the OMR sheet. "The results are final and there will be no re-test," he added.
Over 22,450 candidates appeared for the exam to secure a lateral entry into various courses such as BE, BTech and BPharm.
