Offending photo irks examinee

09, Apr 2018 By shakeel ahmad

An offending picture on the admit card jolts examinee just a day before the start of the examinations. She beseeched the authorities concerned to issue an admit card with her genuine photo. It was not the first case of its kind as a similar thing had emerged six months ago.

We used to grumble at the unexpected change in our photos on the voter’s identity card. But now on a different experience has come to pass with the applicant’s photo. An examinee of Bihar’s L N Mithila University has received her admit card bearing a woman’s picture in the lingerie.

This was quite embarrassing for the girl student appearing at the graduation level part-3 examinations. It was nothing but an unpleasant incident in the unending darkness. When she was grappling with the exam-time anxiety that kind of sudden alteration her admit card photo brought her in an intrinsically weak position.

Being a Home science (Honours) student of SMJ College at Khadejih in Madhubani, about 145 km away from Patna she lodged her formal complaint with the LNM University authorities pleading for a fresh admit card carrying her photo.

She was definitely shocked to see the offending picture. It

At the first instance, the college administration cleared that whatever irregularities were informed had not been done at its level as all the examination related issues were dealt by the university online.

There also came clearance from the university’s examination controller over the mistake though he in his orders directed to immediately change the picture with that of the examinee.

All the onus of that erroneous act was fallen on the agency which was roped in to issue admit card online. A written clarification was also sought from the agency concerned. This blunder was caused due to some grave lapse at a level.
