Controversy shrouds JKSET Results: SC/ST aspirants allege discrepancies in evaluation process


Northlines Correspondent

Tawi: A cloud of uncertainty looms over the recently declared results of the Jammu and State Eligibility Test (JK SET), with a spotlight on potential irregularities affecting candidates from the Scheduled Caste (SC), Scheduled Tribe (ST) and Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) categories etc.

The revelation of discrepancies has cast a shadow on the fairness of the evaluation process, prompting heightened concerns among SC/ST/EWS candidates who alleged that they have been deprived of a place in the results and might have been compromised.

The issue was brought to the attention of the University of Jammu by a candidate from the SC category who raised serious concern over the subject-wise cum category-wise cut-off marks for the JK SET exam, urging a thorough review of the results to ensure accuracy and fairness.

The candidate, in her submission to the Vice Chancellor, highlighted a glaring oversight in the result sheets, in the faculty of Music beside few other subjects. The results for SC and ST categories in this subject marked ‘Na' status which God only knows whether it is “Not Applicable” or ‘Not Available' or something else, indicating an apparent error in the recording of candidates' scores. She has secured 160 out of 300 marks in Music and falling under the SC category, raised the issue along with another candidate, Pooja Devi, who secured 154 marks in Music and also belongs to the SC category.

Raising concerns about the fairness of the evaluation process, she urged an immediate review of the results, emphasizing that several SC and ST candidates who appeared for the JK SET exam might have been affected by this alleged fault in the University's processing system.

The aggrieved candidate stressed the need for a thorough examination of the results related to SC and ST categories, seeking a prompt resolution to ensure transparency and fairness.

“It is a mystery that when the University conducted the SET and aspirants from SC/ST categories took the Test and secured the meritorious marks, how come there be no cut off status in their respective categories for the Subjects they appeared for? The University of Jammu is expected to take a serious note of this issue and to review the results and take corrective measures to rectify the inaccuracies in the evaluation process,” said a retired faculty of the University on the condition not to be named.  Affected candidates await a swift and just resolution to this matter, hoping that the integrity and fairness of the JKSET results are maintained.
