Technical glitches in NIMHANS Exam, re-examination in May

Bangalore: The online admission examination for medical, non medical and doctoral course conducted by National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (Nimhans) scheduled for Sunday was cancelled due to technical glitches. A total of 5,800 students for medical, non medical and doctoral appeared for the online examination.

Speaking with dna, Dr Satishchandra, Director, Nimhans, said: “The examinations was held across 18 centres across the country. Due to technical glitches of service provider, there was a problem in logging in and students were not able to keep up to the time. The problem was with four centers in Hyderabad and Bangalore. In other centers there were no problems.”

“The exam was in four sessions. It started at 8.30am across all the 18 centers. Till the third session, things went on smoothly. The fourth session was to start at 2.30pm but till 3.30pm, students were not able to begin. This was when we realized that there was major problem and the examination had to be cancelled,” Dr Satishchandra said.

He said Nimhans had used the same service provider for six years so far, and it was the first time that such a problem had occurred. “We are conducting an inquiry. All the students have been communicated through SMS. Keeping in mind the hard work of the students and being fair to them, a re-examination will be held in May. Students will be notified about the date soon.
