BU inks pact with BangaloreOne on revaluation

Last updated: 23 November, 2010
Bangalore, Nov 23, DHNS:

Students can approach the centres for photocopies of answer scripts

Bangalore University. File photoStudents of Bangalore University (BU) can shortly head to any of the 65 BangaloreOne centres to apply for revaluation or photocopies of their answer scripts.

In a student-friendly measure, the BU has decided that candidates applying for revaluation or photocopies of their answer sheets need not come all the way to its Jnana Bharathi campus. All they have to do is visit their nearest BangaloreOne centre and pay the requisite fee (no additional charges) in cash or as a demand draft (DD). Within 20-25 days, the photocopies will be delivered to their respective colleges by speed post. 

Announcing this at a press conference here on Tuesday, Vice-Chancellor N Prabhu Dev said the varsity had just signed a memorandum with BangaloreOne for the service.


“BU will bear the service charge of Rs five payable to BangaloreOne”, he said. Currently, the revaluation fee is Rs 315 per subject.

The V-C also announced that exams for subjects such as Indian Constitution, Environmental Science, and Computer Fundamentals would be conducted in Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) mode. Students will have to write answers on the OMR sheets.

Evaluation will be performed by the computers.

“Once the exam is over, answer keys will be immediately made available on www.buuniv.in and www.schools9.com”, he said.

The University has spared colleges from submitting internal assessment marks and OMR sheets for practical marks physically. Now, they can do so online.

Astute move

BU has finally buckled under pressure from teachers on the minimum number of answer sheets to be evaluated per day. But in doing so, it has acted shrewder.

“Nobody will be forced to correct more than 24 papers. But they cannot value more than 36,” Dev said. Earlier, the V-C had defended the decision taken at the last meeting of the Academic Council saying “quite a number of evaluators were assessing more than 36 scripts a day”. 

According to T R Subramanya, Registrar (Evaluation), if teachers had agreed to accept the BU decision, they would have been in profit. “We have evidence that many of them were evaluating as many as 48 scripts daily,” he said.

With most undergraduate exams ending by Tuesday, BU will commence valuation of papers in English, B Com and BBM from November 25. Evaluation of Kannada papers will start on November 30.

Mid-day meals

This year, mid-day meals will also be provided to nearly 3,000 post-graduate students. The meal consists of rice, ragi ball, sambar, and buttermilk. “Students will have to register for Rs 100. For every meal, they will have pay Rs four”, the V-C said. The scheme will not be open to hostel students as they are already provided with meals at the hostel.
