PU valuator's blunder proves costly for student

The results had come as a rude shock for Juveria, a second PU Commerce student from Bishop Cotton’s college. She was declared failed in the recently-conducted II PU examinations. The marks card showed that she had scored only 18 marks in Computer Science, while she had secured above 80 percent in all the main subjects and above 70 in two languages.

On applying for revaluation, the answer script showed a score of 82 marks, a far cry from the dismal 18 in Computer Science. The Board’s valuators, it was too apparent, had committed a blunder.

Having scored a high first class in her 10th standard examination, Juveria was confident of easily getting into a BBM course. But with the last date for applying having expired in most colleges, she is now in a fix. “I had applied in some of the top colleges. But the admissions are closed. I am losing an year of study for no fault of mine. These colleges where I had applied will not consider me now, because they want a clear marks card,” she said.

Abdul Haleem, her father, says that her daughter needs to be compensated by the PU board for the inconvenience caused to his daughter.
