Colleges to get new 'exam manual' soon

To create a clear picture regarding examination procedures, Mangalore University in consultation with a committee of experts has prepared an ‘examination manual’ which may be dispatched to various colleges soon. 


Till date, the Mangalore University did not have a standard examination manual and used to follow the exam regulations framed by the Mysore University.

However, as the regulations were framed when the old examination pattern was in use, many did not match the current examination procedures. Hence, the Mangalore University decided to create a exam manual and formed an expert committee in March 2011. Speaking to Deccan Herald, Mangalore University Vice-Chancellor Professor T C Shivashankar Murthy said that this manual will be a landmark in the history of the University as it has not been prepared earlier.

The manual is ready and has 10 chapters and goes up to 106 pages and an additional 100 pages as annexures. Most of the chapters give a clear idea on the rules and regulations to be followed during the exam such as pre-examination preparation procedures, procedures to be followed during exam, post examination procedures, malpractices, duties of exam chief superintendent, deputy chief superintendent, room superintendent, convocation among others. 


The committee that was formed in 2011 consisted a panel of the Former Registrar of Evaluation, Principals of different colleges, Teachers Association President. The committee has worked almost for a year, said the VC. The exam manual was presented before the syndicate meeting held on Wednesday and it has been approved in-principle. However, the syndicate will go through the manual and will point out modifications if necessary in the next syndicate meeting to be held in two weeks. The manual will be then presented before the academic council meeting to be held on September 26. After the council's approval, it will be dispatched to various colleges as a standard exam procedure guide, the VC added.
