Bharat Bandh call forces JU to postpone entrance test
Jammu , May 30: University of Jammu has postponed the much awaited Jammu University Entrance Test (JUET 2012) by a day in wake of ‘Bharat Bandh’ call given by various social and political organisations against hike in petrol prices.
Earlier JUET 2012 was scheduled to start on May 31 and now it will commence from June 1.
Sources in the University said that as the normal life in Jammu and adjoining areas is expected to remain paralyzed in wake of the call, the administration has decided to postpone JUET by one day. They said the main date-sheet will remain same and only the test that was scheduled on May 31 will be held on June 5. The JUET 2012 will be completed on June 14.
Pertinently, the test for Sociology, Masters of Library Sciences, Music, and Biochemistry was scheduled on May 31, but keeping in view the possible inconvenience to the admission seekers to reach the examination centres due to strike, the University administration postponed the tests of first day and rescheduled these papers for June 5.
The examination will be conducted in eight examinations centres including Bhaderwah, Jammu , Kathua, Poonch, Rajouri, Reasi, Srinagar and Udhampur in various colleges and schools.
Around 16,000 candidates are appearing in the Test for around 2,000 seats in 33 departments.
