Timings in admit cards messed up
A major goof-up occurred during issuance of admit cards to students. In many admit cards the timing of the exams was printed wrong. For Group A and C students, exam is from 10 am but their admit cards showed exam time from 2 pm.
When students, who were regularly checking the university website for CET updates, informed the university about the goof-up on Monday, the university corrected the mistake. A public note was also uploaded on the university website suggesting the students to ignore the timings mentioned on their admit cards and follow the one mentioned on the website.
