Bhubaneswar: Uncertainty looms large over the fate of nearly 700 aspirants of Bachelor of Legislative Law (LLB) course at University Law College, over inordinate delay in publication of entrance exam results.
It has been a stressful period for hundreds of students who appeared for the entrance exam for 2018 batch as the college authorities are yet to publish the result.
According to reports, the entrance exam for LLB course at ULC was supposed to be held on July 22 and results were likely to be declared on July 30. But due to incessant rains, the entrance was held on July 29.
The ULC was supposed to declare the results ten days after the entrance. However, since a month has passed, the results are yet to be out.
It is learnt that alleged leak of question papers and malpractice in the exam are the main reasons behind the delay in declaration of the results
Besides, a candidate allegedly carried a cell phone into the examination hall where he was apparently texting the answers. Following this, other candidates created an uproar on the day of the exam.
Later, some candidates also shot a letter to the college Superintendent regarding the alleged irregularities and malpractices.
Source said, while a committee including the vice-chancellor (VC) and other lecturers had organised three meetings regarding the alleged complaints by the candidates, the authorities concerned are tight-lipped on the issue.
Expressing dismay some candidates said that there has been no clarity on the date of declaration of the results and the entrance exam is likely to be held again.
They are also likely to approach the High Court, said a source.
