Urge university to set right the problem immediately

 The National Students and Parents Association, Udupi district, has demanded immediate action from the Mangalore University to set right the mistakes it has committed during evaluation of answer scripts.

Speaking to mediapersons here on Friday, Prashasti, a final year student at UPMC, Ud                upi, charged that the evaluation process was totally misleading and brilliant students have ‘failed’. The examinations took place in the month of November and the results were delayed.

The results were announced on February 22. The students, who scored distinction in all pervious examinations, are shocked by their poor performance, she claimed.

Prashasti said most of the students have ‘failed’ as per the university’s evaluation. However, the university is yet to issue marks cards.

It is injustice and she is in confusion as she wants to apply for MBA entrance examination.

She claimed that the low marks have brought down her confidence level and added that she is unaware how to pursue further education.

She said she used to score anywhere between 75 per cent and 80 per cent marks always. But now, she is shocked to see her results which have drastically decreased to 50-55 per cent, she added. 

Prajwal from MGM College alleged that most of students have not received the mark cards in his college yet. Nine students, studying in first year BA, have just scored 42 out of 150, which is the passing marks.

Fee paid

Some BSc students have not received their results and it is that their results have been withheld for non-payment of the fees. However, they all have paid the fees. The marks’ entry is not made for the vocational column of the BCom final year students, he charged.
Prashasti alleged that there is no response from the university despite calling it several times.

Adding to the woes, the university officials have stopped picking up the calls.
The situation is dreadful as the students are uncertain about their future, she claimed.
She said the students have decided to step up the protest if the university fails to take immediate measures to set right the problem.

A massive protest will be staged in front of the university at Konaje, she said.
She regretted that the results are purely based on “luck” and not on efforts
and claimed that the students who failed in their previous examinations have scored good results.
