Mangalore University may award grades to LLB repeaters


At present only those who complete their 5-year LLB course in the first attempt will be given classes (like first class, second class, etc). Those who clear their papers in repeat attempts get only ‘pass class’ in their marks cards.
The varsity Academic Council approved the amendments to the regulations governing 5-year LLB degree programme during its meeting held at Mangalagangothri on Wednesday.

Vice-Chancellor Prof K M Kaveriappa said the approved regulations would be sent for the Governor’s approval soon. Once the regulations get the Chancellor’s nod, the new system would be introduced, he added.
As per the existing clause, “...while declaring the class at the end of the 10th semester, the aggregate marks secured by the candidate in all the VII, VIII, IX and X semesters shall be considered provided he/she passes the first to 10th semester exams in the first attempt.” A meeting of the Board of Studies for Law held on September 14, had recommended that class could be declared “irrespective of the number of attempts”.
The Academic Council approved the draft regulations for the Centre for Study of Social Exclusion and Inclusive Policy.

New courses
The Council also approved a PG Diploma course in Human Resource Management at Govinda Dasa College, Surathkal. The VC said that it is the only college in Mangalore University to offer the course.

The Council also approved MSc (Medicinal Chemistry) and MCom (Insurance and Bank Management) in SDM College, Ujire, MBA (International Business) in University College, Hampankatta (as an evening course), Diploma in Animation and Visual Effect at National Computer Centre in Mangalore and Sachi Institute of Multimedia in Udupi.
The Council also gave its nod to change the course title MA in Communications at St Aloysius College in Mangalore as Master of Communication and Media Studies.
Registrar (Administration) Prof K Chinnappa Gowda and Finance Officer Prof P S Yedapadithaya were present.

Centralised revaluation system
Registrar (Evaluation) Dr Shivalingaiah said the varsity will introduce centralised revaluation system for the undergraduate degree courses soon.
He also informed that the results of the II and VI semester exams of BA, BCom, BSc and BSW courses (held in May) have been announced and are available on the university website.
