Hall ticket delay gives tense moments to law students

Around 400 law students had anxious moments as the University Law College delayed issuing admission tickets for the final examination beginning on Monday, June 19.

 Dr V Sudesh, principal and dean, University Law College, Bangalore University, however, told DH that the delay was caused by technical glitches in the software portal.

“We distribute admission tickets online. We were supposed to distribute them yesterday (June 15) but there was a delay as the server of the portal was down due to a transformer burst in Sadashivnagar,” he said. Dr Sudesh said the company that processes all its examination work, repaired it in the morning and all students were distributed hall tickets at 4 pm.

 However, the students claim they received the admission tickets only by 7 pm. Nikhil, (name changed) was more worried about whether the exam would happen or not as he had not received the admission ticket. He said, “It is not the first time we are facing this problem. Every time we have an exam, this problem arises. Not only this, we are also made to spend time paying examination fees and other related work only at the fag end of the semester when we are busy preparing for the exams.”

 Denying the allegations, Sudesh said, “I had made alternative arrangements for permitting students with the student’s copy, if we were unable to distribute the admission tickets today. A student copy is a document that contains the details of the exam that the student is appearing for.”

 However, the students demand that the officials put an end to all these problems.
