Last year, TCS had entered into a partnership with the renowned university to administer online tests at its affiliated test centres.

Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education, Professor Martin Williams addressed the issue in a letter to teachers and exam officers, saying that the university has conducted a thorough investigation into the issues to better understand how and why they occurred, media reports said.
