The PU muddle only got murkier

 Even as the deadline for announcing revaluation results of II PU answer scripts is drawing to a close, several students are still clueless about applying for revaluation itself, as there are mistakes in photocopies sent to them.

While officials continue to promise that the problem will be sorted out, students are going through anxious moments owing to the errors.
The last date to apply for revaluation is June 9.

The results of revaluation are set to be announced on June 14. With only one more working day remaining for applying for revaluation, the photocopies have created unnecessary panic.

An instance is the case of Pavithra (name changed), a student from Mandya. While the student had applied for revaluation of Mathematics paper, what she received from the Department of Pre-university Education shocked her. Along with the photocopy of her script, she received certain pages that did not belong to her.

Speaking to Deccan Herald, the student said: “When I got the photocopy, I was shocked to see that one of the additional sheets that was sent to me did not belong to me. It was not even a Mathematics paper. Someone else's script of some other subject was attached as part of my answer sheet”.

The student and her father travelled all the way from Mandya and spent an entire day waiting for officials.

“At the end of the day, they told us that it would be sorted out by Monday. However, given the chaos surrounding the issue, we do not know whether it will really be resolved. This has caused us a lot of anxiety,” he said.

The student said that she has been given 39 in Maths, while she expects at least 70.
“I have got good marks in all other subjects. I got my answers verified by my teacher too. In the same paper, for one of the questions, where I have mentioned all the formulae, I have been given only four marks out of five,” she said.

27K applications
The department has received more than 27,000 applications for photocopies this year. Several errors in the valuation process had resulted in anxiety among students, leading to an increase in the number of applications.
