'Attendance shortage': 11 engg students prevented from taking exams


This has made students of the college furious. It is said that five out of eleven students did not know that they had to attend the classes till the results were out.
Engineering students can be promoted to next semester if they pass four subjects but their promotion to the consecutive class will be withheld if they fail to clear the back log papers from first year and second year.

Likewise, Mechanical Engineering students Mohommad Nihal, Chirajith Shetty, Sagar Shetty, Dheeraj from Computer Science and Suma from Electronics had appeared for supplement examination to clear off their back logs. When the results came, they had passed in some papers only and hence they had paid the charges asking for revaluation of the papers in which they had lost. In September, these students went for ‘challenge revaluation’ as they could not pass the papers even after a revaluation. When the result of this ‘challenge revaluation’ was out, the students had cleared the papers but what landed them in trouble is lack of basic knowledge that they should be attending classes regularly while they wait for the results of revaluation and challenge revaluation.

Since all of these students have shortage of attendance, the college has denied them permission to appear for the examination to be held in December. A total of 11 students have been denied entry to examination of which 6 students have shortage of attendance while these 5 students say that they did not know that they were supposed to attend classes while they wait for the revaluation results. They say that college has no grounds to deny them permission to write examination.  “We have paid the fees for next year like any other student. We went for revaluation through the college itself. We were never told that we are required to attend the classes while we wait for the results. Couple of times when we attended the classes our names were not read out from the attendance register. During internal examinations, we were made to sit in a separate classroom,” inform the students concerned.
