IIMs promise 'fair outcome' to all candidates

  A release issued by them has stated that candidates who have not been rescheduled on account of genuine reasons will be given a new date in 15 days’ time.

“There are still some candidates (numbering a few thousand) who could not take the test due to genuine reasons and the test has not been rescheduled for them yet. A new test date will be announced in about a fortnight to provide an opportunity to all such candidates to write the test,” a release issued by the Directors of IIMs stated.

Further, they stated that they have already begun the process of assessing the disruptions and will address the concerns of affected candidates who have already sat for the test.
“We have put in place a process to identify and assess the impact of various types of disruptions noticed and reported during the entire testing period; these are being addressed to ensure fairness in testing” the release said.

The release also admitted that candidates suffered a variety of disruptions such as malfunctioning systems, missing charts and graphs, and other technical problems.
However, they have put aside concerns that some candidates gained an unfair advantage on account of the schedule.

“The test papers have been designed by experts to ensure that no one gets an unfair advantage. Statistical methods are commonly used to equate difficulty levels across the test papers,” the release said.
