The exam was scheduled on October 12.
The Bangalore University (BU) postponed its final-year examination for the ‘Principal and Practice of Auditing’ paper of B.Com programme yesterday following reports of exam paper being leaked and widely circulated on social media platforms.
The examination was scheduled to be conducted on October 12. However, two hours prior to the commencement of the examination, reports of question paper leak were doing the rounds.
“We have filed a complaint with cybercrime police. We do not know where the leak happened. The question papers are moved to centres as far as Kolar in the morning of the exam day itself. The leak could have happened any time. We passed on the information on postponement of exam to sitting squads of all centres by 1 PM,” stated K R Venugopal, vice-chancellor, BU in an official notification.
The university will announce the revised date for the examination on its official website soon.
The examination was scheduled to be conducted at 205 centres for more than 40,000 students from around 700 affiliated colleges.
