KATHMANDU, July 15: The Tribhuvan University has taken action against four teachers for copying questions meant for examinations of various grades. Those facing action will be barred from teaching at any colleges under the TU for three years and denied involvement in any examinations during the period, the meeting of the TU Executive Council said in a statement.
The teachers have been charged with copying BBA (sixth semester) question paper (MGT 203: Organizational Behavior) that took place on July 6 and copying BBA (sixth semester) question papers (SOC 202: Nepalese Society and Politics) and (SOC 201: Sociology for Business) that was organized on July 9.
The same question paper (Organizational Behavior) was made by Modern Nepal College, Sorhakhutte for its pre-board examinations three months ago. "The question paper made by Modern Nepal College has been copied and submitted to the Office of Dean, TU. The teacher in question is found to have violated academic values and standards," read the statement.
The question paper of SOC 202: Nepalese Society and Politics that was made for bank examinations in the past has also been copied.
The meeting also decided to punish those involved in copying the MA (Third semester) question paper (Public Economics) that took place on June 1 and MA (First semester) question paper (International Politics).
Similarly, the TU has formed a high level committee under the leadership of Prof Dr Bhojraj Aryal to make examinations more systematic and decent after studying problems and shortcomings seen in the management and conducting examinations.
