Bangalore varsity to adopt two govt colleges in City

Proposal to use OMR sheets for admissions

Observing that many students have secured slightly below the average marks in II PUC, Dr N Prabhu ev, Vice-Chancellor said, “Students are denied the opportunity to continue their education due to higher cut-off percent at several unaided affiliated colleges. To increase the enrollment ratio for higher education, the university held a meeting with the Department of Collegiate Education to adopt two government colleges - Government Arts and Science College and Maharani’s College. These will provide admissions to students willing to pursue graduation.”

The Council passed a resolution to constitute committees to check whether private unaided colleges are meeting the requirements of the varsity roster. A decision was also taken to demand a certain percentage of seats of undergraduate courses in the private unaided affiliated colleges for reserved categories. Another committee has been constituted to verify whether the private colleges are following the varsity norms on the fee structure. The Vice-Chancellor directed that both the committees should submit reports to the council within two months.

The council decided to give preference to the wards of defence personnel in doctoral programmes.

Autonomous colleges

 The council approved the amendment of statutes proposed by the Syndicate sub-committee headed by Dr Chethana, on fixation of fee structure for autonomous colleges. The Council also directed that the autonomous colleges should conduct mandatory governing council meetings throughout the year, and the proceedings of the meetings should be forwarded to the varsity.

The meeting approved the introduction of three-year B Sc in animation through distance learning, PG diploma in animation, bachelors degrees in Aerospace and Avionic engineering in University of Visvesvaraya College of Engineering (UVCE).The closure of nine colleges for poor admission was also approved.

The meeting agreed on the exit provision in the five-year integrated course in social sciences, enabling students to receive a certificate on par with the BA degree at the end of three years.

OMR sheets

The meeting lauded the proposal for introduction of OMR sheets in the admission process. The sheets will have details of the certificates submitted at the time of admission, course and the subjects selected along with biometric impression of the candidate. The details will be used until examination and announcement of results. “The new system of using OMR sheets will help in the significant reduction of the mistakes which occur during the announcement of result. Mistakes in the names of the candidates, change of courses, will be drastically reduced as the OMR sheets will be meticulously recorded” said Syed Jamal, Special Officer, Evaluation, BU, while presenting the proposal to the Council.
