Retired prof points out errors galore in II PU paper

Bangalore, April 14, 2013, DHNS:

A retired professor of commerce has pointed out errors summing up to 89 marks out of the 149 marks worth of questions in the accountancy paper of the II PU examination held last month.

A majority of the questions are structurally wrong, the others are plain confusing and some are mathematically wrong, K Ramaraya Nayak, a retired professor from Vijaya Teachers’ College Bangalore, observed.

For instance, in question 20, which was for 14 marks, “in the trial balance, it has been given as 1,000 shares of Rs 10 each and the amount given is Rs 1 lakh. The statement should have been either 1,000 shares of Rs 100 each or 10,000 shares of Rs 10 each,” Nayak said. This is but one such question. There are mistakes in questions 16, 17, 18, 19, 21, 22, 23 among others.

“The entire question paper is full of such mistakes. How is a student supposed to solve the problems if the statements are printed wrong,” he asked.

Nayak has demanded that the government conduct revaluation or give grace marks to students to compensate for the ‘damage’. He said he would approach the court to seek justice for students if the Department of Pre-University Education failed to take cognisance of the issue.
