MBA paper leak forces University of Pune to conduct re-exam
The board of examination of the University of Pune decided yesterday that it will conduct a re-examination of the Management Information System (MIS) paper of its MBA programme on June 14.
The question paper of the exam, which was held on May 10, was leaked through WhatsApp.
“An inquiry conducted by the police has substantiated allegations of the Management Information System (MIS) paper leak. Therefore, we have decided to conduct a re-examination of that paper only. The concerned examination thus stands cancelled,” said Dr W N Gade, UoP vice-chancellor.
Around 12,000 first-year MBA students, studying in different B-schools affiliated to UoP, will have to re-appear for the paper.
The exam for MIS was conducted last among the six first-year MBA subjects and students had alleged leaks in the first four papers too.
According to students, the UoP ‘changed’ the question paper of the fifth subject, Operations Research, after allegations of the first four leaks were reported in local newspapers.
