Students throw weight behind DUTA members

New Delhi, Oct 11, 2012, (PTI) :

They are unhappy about several university decisions

Several students on Thursday turned up to show solidarity with the Delhi University Teachers Association members who are on hunger strike, demanding a dialogue with the administration over academic changes being made at the university.

Students complained about errors in their final exam results. “We are clueless about the evaluation process in the last semester exams. With hardly any time to finish the course, several students from my class were seen running around to get their marks rectified, and wasted at least two months,” said a Ramjas College student.

BA programme students from Gargi College complained about the entire class being failed in German language paper.

“Firstly, the results were declared two to three months after the new semester started. And then we get the information that the entire class is failed. This is too much mental stress. Then after several months the examination branch said it was their mistake,” said Shivangi, a second year student.

Last year, authorities put up a new set of reduced marks on the website a few weeks after the first semester results were initially declared. Later, DU clarified that it was a technical glitch.

Students were also questioning the new rule under which students have to write their name and other details on answer sheets as it reveals their identities. “Why is DU even giving scope for any kind of bias while marking? The vice chancellor has announced that three evaluators will check our copies. But how can the students be sure that the marks they get are what they deserved,” said Rajat, a student from Shri Ram College of Commerce. He also complained about the increase in re-evaluation fee to around Rs1,000 per paper.

“When we asked about the semester system and hike in re-evaluation, VC just kept nodding assuring that it will looked into. He talks about innovation projects, world class university. Tell him to first check the declining infrastructure,” said Umair, a student from Sri Venkateswara College.
