Thiruvananthapuram: The trial allotment list for Plus-One admission in Kerala was published hours before the announced time on Friday, leading to the crash of the Higher Secondary Education department website
Earlier, it was announced that the trial allotment would be published at 2 pm. However, it was published early in the morning itself. However, the early release did more harm than good as the server crashed when thousands of students logged into the website at the same time.
By evening, the IT cell of the Higher Secondary department said that the website was up again. But, the students still couldn’t check the allotment list.
Meanwhile, applicants are allowed to edit the Plus-One application only until 5 pm on 31 July. Many have demanded more time to make up for hassles and delays brought about by the hanging of the server.
SAY exam
The ‘Save An Year’ examination for Plus-Two students that was held on Friday too was jeopardised as its website too depends on the same server.
This exam was scheduled in the morning and afternoon sessions yesterday. The authorities of the exam centres download the seating arrangement for each exam, the mark sheets and the slips that have to be pasted on the answer sheet parcels from the exam website on the day of the exam.
The teachers struggled to download these as the website crashed. The deputy directors, meanwhile, instructed them to conduct the exams as usual and send the answer sheets to the valuation camps without the mark sheets.
Meanwhile, the department authorities refuse to explain why they published the trial allotment earlier than announced if they could foresee such crisis.
