Re-evaluation worries for students of BDU

Image result for bharathidasan university trichyCITY-BASED UG pass outs who ap-plied for transparency (a photo-copy of their answer sheets) at the Controller of Examinations (COE) at Bharathidasan University (BDU) are left in the lurch, as they are yet to receive the copies. With many students having al-ready paid the required amount for transparency and re-evaluation of their answer papers over the past two weeks, university officials said work is going on at full speed to provide photocopies of the answer sheets and should be ready before July 7. A 20-year-old city-based student found she had scored a low grade in one of the subjects in her sixth semester (say, 15 out of 75), though she had scored a whopping 92 per cent in all six semesters. Her father, an associate professor, noted his daughter was capable of scor-
ing at least 70 marks in that subject. He applied for transparency with BDU COE after results were published on June 22. The student is still awaiting the copy to check where corrections were made. As per instructions, post UG results, if a student has failed in any one subject in six semesters, he or she can apply for an instant examination, where results would be published quickly compared to the regular practice. In order to do that, the student has to request a photocopy of the answer sheet of that subject. As ap-plications for requesting transparency were opened on June 23, many students are bewildered as they are yet to receive their copies and cannot sit for the instant exam. A student who applied for transparency and re-evaluation said the copy of the answer sheet is yet to reach and the instant exam is scheduled for July 9.. "I want to join PG but after seeing one of my subject marks in the final semester, I applied for transparency to see where the mistake has happened. Though the instant examination is scheduled for July 9, I guess many like me have to appear for the exam without knowing of the corrections," said a student. A parent of the student had visited BDU several times enquiring into the matter, but officials did not give a satisfactory reply. "I have called the relevant person and also made
physical visits to the university, but in vain," the parent said. Former president of the Association of University Teachers (AUT), K Pandiyan, pointed out over 15 to 20 lakh students appear for board examinations every year and many would apply for transparency and reevaluation post result publication and requests should be addressed on time. "If the School Education Department can provide a number of answer sheets to students, why can't the
university where around 60,000 to 70,000 students appear for the semester," Pandiyan said A well-placed BDU faculty member said official s and staff working at the university are looking after two or more posts and work pres-sure has increased. "For the COE, who has to act swiftly to send transparency copies of answer sheets, it is difficult as he has to also act as the Registrar (in-charge) since the latter is away on an international visit." Speaking to Express, BDU COE R Thirumtuagan assured the work would be over by July 7. The management had brought in extra staff to complete the work before the deadline. Transparency work takes 15 days from the time of results publication. "Almost 90 per cent of the work has been completed and staff are sending the answer sheets by post once photocopied," said the COE.
