Admission Interviews for Mass Comm. will now be Videotaped

According to a Jamia press release dated June 11, interviews conducted for admission to  courses in the AJK Mass Communication Research Center will be video recorded starting this academic session of 2012-13.

The stated objective for this practice is “to ensure greater transparency and accountability in the process of selection.”

Although the recordings are to ensure greater transparency in the process, the press release does not say whether interviewing candidates can request to see their interview recordings if they so desired. And neither does it say what recourse can a candidate have in case she feels justice was not done in assessing her interview. Will the candidate have the option of getting her interview re-evaluated, is yet to be known.
