Thiruvananthapuram: When exams of universities in Kerala came under the scanner due to re-printing question papers of previous years, Kerala University has made another gaffe. A student attending re-examination received the answer key instead of the question paper. The student, however, without mentioning the matter, filled the answer book.But the serious lapse came to light after the evaluator identified the mistake.

The fourth semester BSc Electronics student could not attend the scheduled exam due to Covid-19 infection. The re-examination of the paper Signals and Systems was held in February.

The Office of Controller of Examinations printed the answer keys of the exam by mistake. However, it came to the attention of the university when the evaluator asked for a question paper in addition to the answer book of the student and the answer key he received. Neither the student nor the invigilator had reported the matter during the exam. It is unclear if the invigilator was aware of the mistake.

The vice-chancellor has ordered an inquiry after the university cancelled the exam.
