Pune, November 10, 2020: After the Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) administration conducted the retest examination for students on November 5, 6 and 7, several students have raised issues of facing technical glitches during the course of the retest examination as well.

According to the data received from Maharashtra Student Welfare Association(MSWA), as many as 310 students have demanded to reconduct the examination for the third time as they still faced errors.

However, the SPPU administration has made it clear that no retest will be conducted for any of the pupils

Clarifying on this matter, Mahesh Kakade, Director of Examination and Evaluation, SPPU, said, “On November 5, we were expecting 11,500 students registered to give the online exam. However, only 5,088 students showed up. On November 6, 24,500, students registered but only 10,076 students were present. On November 7, 38,900 filled the google form, but only 13,200 turned for giving the exam. This means that students are playing with the sentiments of the university.”

Kakade further said, “I will verify all the students who are raising that they still faced glitches and claim that they didn’t receive the email. I will make the students stand in front of the exam lapses committee. If they are found guilty of providing wrong information, they will be charged under a legal case upon various sections of the Maharashtra University Act.”

Sharing his thoughts on this issue, Vaibhav Edke, President, MSWA, said, “If the university does not conduct retest examination for these students, we will protest against them, this is the last option that we have.”
