Controversies[edit]

Internal working of University is not transparent. Examination Department of this University is a mess. Question papers for semester exams are not designed as per syllabus. Question papers were changed during examination up to 3 times in some cases as questions were not as per syllabus prescribed by the University.[1]

Examination Centers were changed a day before the examination which causes inconvenience.[2]

There are instances where Question Paper with maximum marks of 0 are given.[3]

Sometimes question paper doesn't even specify the exact number of questions to be answered and their weightage.[4]

Since almost every other Private College in the state is affiliated to this University care must be taken while choosing the College as such incidents will directly affect every student.
