KU fails to upload revised SET key in 2 months

Even after the passage of more than two months, the Kashmir University has failed to upload the revised key of State Eligibility Test (SET) held on March 11. The failure has delayed the results, leaving candidates high and dry.

“The inordinate delay by the varsity has raised apprehensions of further misconduct in the exams. As many as 72 days have passed since the exam was conducted," said Aamir, an aggrieved candidate.

Another candidate while questioning the credibility of the varsity said the delay in uploading revised key of SET exam will play a spoilsport as they are not able to apply for various academic related posts.

"SET qualification is prerequisite for academic posts," said Azhar, another candidate.

Following the inordinate delay, the candidates say there have apprehensions that KU may further create confusion in revised key or at the time of declaration of results.

"Given our past experience in this exam, KU may further make the process murky and that will be disastrous for us," Azhar said.

The KU on March 18 uploaded flawed answer key of all subjects which raised many questions on the varsity administration.

The answer keys of Music, Physics and other subjects uploaded on the university website did not give correct answers. According to candidates, more than 80 percent of answers were shown wrong in the keys.

The varsity had to face criticism, forcing them to clarify that it was not “involved either directly or indirectly in setting the question papers or framing of keys”.

Dean Academic Affairs Musadiq Suhaaf said the keys were sent to experts outside the state for review and majority of the keys have been received back by the University.

"A few keys are still awaited for which I have asked the coordinator to remind the experts. I expect it will be done within a week," he said.

He said once all the keys are received they will be uploaded on the website and results will be also declared.

"We are conscious about the fact that students had to wait for long but we don’t have any control on experts," he said.
