H'pathy exam result creates panic

All students from a Gulbarga college declared failed

The results declared on the internet on Monday showed that all the students of the HKE Society Homoeopathic College as failed in Organon.

College principal Dr Sampath Rao told Deccan Herald that there was some technical problem in the declaration of final results. While maintaining that none of the students had failed in Organon practical and viva exam, Dr Rao said that the University will be apprised about the error and the results will be set right, and asked the students to not panic.

When asked if the error was limited to only one college in Gulbarga, he said he was not aware about it.

Sources said that there was an error in the entry of maximum marks for practical and viva. While each carry a maximum mark of 100 in the final exam, the maximum marks have been treated as 50.

Dr Rao clarified that the fault did not lie with the college but with RGUHS and added that the issue was brought to the notice of the controller of examinations of the university.
This is the second time that such an error has occurred. Last year, the results showed that all students had failed in Materia Medica. The error was set right later.
Meanwhile, shocked with their results, students made frantic calls to the principal and teaching staff of the college seeking clarification.

Dr Rao, who will be going to Bangalore in a couple of days to attend a Board of Studies meeting, said he would ensure that the results are set right then, if they are not rectified already.

RGUHS unaware
When Deccan Herald contacted RGUHS Registrar (evaluation), Dr Sachidananda, he said that he was not aware about any such incident in Gulbarga. The registrar also pointed that the internal assessment marks may not have been updated online.

“From this year, the university has started collecting internal assessment marks online and hence this needs to be updated regularly by the institutions. If the colleges fail to update the marks online, the previous marks would be taken into consideration while declaring the results,” Dr Sachidananda said.

The registrar evaluation added the matter would be looked into on Tuesday.
