MU plans 'no additional sheet' for exams

The Mangalore University is contemplating implementing a ‘no additional sheet’ system in both UG and PG examinations which will be held in April/May 2011. Speaking at the Academic Council meeting here on Wednesday, Vice-Chancellor Prof T C Shivashankara Murthy said the main answer sheets for UG will have 40 pages and for the PG, there will be 44 pages. In fact, the questions will be framed in such a way that the answers will be accommodated within these main pages. The question paper will also clearly state that the answers should not exceed half page, one page or two page.

Permanent affiliation

The VC said the university will also review those colleges which have got permanent affiliations. As per the UGC guidelines, the permanent affiliation has to be reviewed once in five years. If the local inspection committee is not happy with the facilities, then the colleges will be asked to give a compliance report on fulfilling the conditions. The colleges should maintain quality of education, he added.

Cyber lab

Prof Shivashankara Murthy said a cyber lab will come up at the Mangalore University library with 50 computers. In fact, it will be increased to 100 computers in the next six months. The students can have access to internet facility in the library apart from the cyber lab at the science building of the university.

New colleges

As many as six new colleges have applied for affiliation from the Mangalore University.

They are Unity Academy of Education, Goal College of Information Technology, Mahesh College of Management, Kudroli, Paduva College of Commerce and Management, Nanthoor, Goretti College of Commerce and Management, Karkala, Paradise Institute of Hotel Management, Malpe. Kukke Shri Subramanyeshwara College had applied for permanent affiliation which was okayed in the Council meeting. The Council okayed the continuation of affiliation to 102 colleges and extension of affiliation to 41 colleges.
