Errors in degree exam results  leave BU students perplexed
Anxious students are turning up at the Bangalore University campus in Jnanabharathi, with complaints about errors in their results. BCom and BCA students got their final-semester results earlier this month. Many students who took the examinations are perplexed as their result indicates that they were absent for certain subjects.

“My results say that I was absent for an exam when, in fact, I did attend it. When I brought this up with the examinations department, they said that they would correct the mistake. It has been a week now and I am still waiting,” Manoj, a student, said.

Students from Chikkaballapura, Ramanagaram, Kolar and different parts of Bengaluru were at the university campus on Thursday to get their results corrected. However, owing to staff shortage, only 20 students were able to get their results corrected.

The degree results were announced on July 9 but there were many problems with it. Students are worried as the last date to apply for  postgraduate courses is July 21. “We have not got the corrected result yet and the last date to submit applications is here. We cannot apply without a provisional marks card,” Sindhu, a student said.

They complained that officials were not being responsive to their problem. An official in the university said, “There were several errors in the results of 60 students of a college in Chintamani in Chikkaballapur district. Similarly, many other students have also been affected and they are coming here everyday to get them corrected.”

Dr M Shankar Reddy, Registrar (Evaluation), said that such mistakes occurred as the colleges did not provide the university with correct information about the student’s internal marks within the stipulated time. He added that this also delayed the announcement of the results.

“If the registration number is not written correctly, if internal marks are not submitted and if incorrect details about attendance are given, such mistakes occur. We are looking into these matters,” Dr Reddy said.

He said that to avoid such mistakes, they had held a session for lecturers before the start of the exams, to warn them of the common mistakes made. “Even then, several problems have come up. We will take action against colleges which did not follow the procedures. We will also make sure that students don’t face any problem with admission to postgraduate courses,” he said.
