Undergraduate students from a number of colleges affiliated to Bangalore University staged a protest on Monday under the aegis of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad for a number of “goof-ups” in their results.
Karunya M, a second-year Biotechnology student of Maharani Science College, said: “Instead of marking the two sections under our biotechnology paper as ‘biochemistry’ and ‘biophysics’, they have been marked as ‘microbiology’ and ‘biostatics’ which are second semester subjects. Even though the full marks in biophysics is 25, one girl has got 28. There are numerous other such goof-ups,” said Karunya.
Another student, Kavyashree, studying BCom (fourth semester) at Maharani Commerce College, said: “In every other subject, I got above 70 marks. However, in my optionals I got only 18.
There are people who have failed in all their major subjects. More than 250 students from my college are facing this problem,” she said.
