Kerala Governor Arif Mohammad Khan has requested a report from Kerala and Kannur universities over recent examination blunders.
Students taking the B.Sc electronics test "Signals and Systems" at Kerala University were given the answer key instead of the question paper. The exam took place in February, and not a single student brought up the topic during the exam. When the answer sheets were delivered to be valued, the error was found.
Meanwhile, exams at Kannur University have been postponed when it was detected that the previous year's question papers had been replicated this year.
The report was described as a "regular matter" by a Raj Bhavan official because the Kerala Governor is the de facto Chancellor of state universities. "On the basis of the reports, action will be taken. The Raj Bhavan is intervening in university matters on a regular basis "According to the official’s statement.
The university goof-up has come up at a time when the Kerala Governor is at odds with the state government over matters such as the administration of state universities and the appointment of Vice-Chancellors.
