KTU drops exam outsourcing

Kochi: The maiden venture of APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University to outsource the exams on the line of Health University has failed as the University forced to drop the move following strong protest of University employees and students. The University decided to withdraw the exam outsourcing process in a meeting chaired by the Education Minister P K Abdurab held today at Thiruvanathapuram.
In the meeting it was decided that the University would conduct the first semester exams in the conventional mode after the Christmas. However, the second semester exams would be delayed further.
The Employees Union suggested to entrust Keltron to develop the software for conducting the computer-based exam. But, the suggestion was also dropped. Education Minister P K Aburab, Additional Chief Secretary K A Abraham, representatives of University Employees’ Union and Students’ Union participated in the meeting.
The issue began when the University decided to outsource its examination process to private agency in order to avoid the inordinate delay in announcing the results. The university authorities claimed that the examination process was outsourced to a Bengaluru-based private organisation named Merit Track in a transparent manner. The agency had already conducted many examination including CBSE exams. Though the University authorities clarified that the role of agency is limited to providing technical support, it failed to convince the University Employees and students.
