Students were shocked to find that Part-B of the Discrete Time Signal Processing question paper, which should five (either/or) questions, had only four questions. Question number 13 (a) and 13(b) were missing.

Confused over this, students informed their exam hall invigilators, who in turn alerted the Additional Controller of Examinations (ACOE).Halfway through the exam, students were issued separate pieces of papers containing the missing question. ACOE authorities said they spotted the error during the review in the previous evening and rectified it for College of Engineering, Guindy but could not correct it for MIT as the papers had to be sent the previous evening.

Baskar, deputy controller of examinations, MIT, said there was a technical glitch when the question paper setter converted the word into PDF. “Question no.13 (a) in the last line of page one got deleted as it went beyond the margin,” he said. ACOE authorities clarified that printouts containing the missing question were sent much earlier and MIT faculties did not distribute it till the students alerted them.
