One of the parent said, “My son was going to attend the exam paper for MBA third semester backlog on Tuesday and the exam was slated to begin at 1 pm. However, as he was trying to log-in, the message 'No test active, please contact your administrator' was displayed. I called the help centre, we were told that this is a common problem, we need to wait. The exam was he finally at 7 pm.”
On Monday, a delay of over two hours took place in downloading offline question papers as MCQ (Multiple Choice Questions) option was also given but questions were missing from the paper itself resulting some technical glitches on the first day of the online-offline final year degree examinations.
