AKTU drops MCQ Test plans to issue model questions 

At the same time, some of the candidates are demanding for the model test papers. Moreover, the lack of proper public transport, it has been quite impossible to travel from one place to another in short while. No domestic or international flights are running nowadays due to the long term pandemic prevailing across the country.

In the context of this, AKTU has planned to take MCQ exams and set the duration of the exam in that way. But some of the candidates refused to accept the proposal. Therefore, the university has planned to issue model test papers for the preparation of the candidates easily.

Prof. Rajeev Kumar, Controller of the Examination, in his statement notified that the date sheet of the examination will be released as soon as possible. All these efforts were being made to allow the examination centres nearby to the candidates so that they would have to travel less and reach there on time.
