University acts tough on affiliated colleges

Staff Reporter

Delay in publishing results has led to deputation of teachers


Makes deputation of teachers for central valuation compulsory

The varsity to strictly follow the exam diary, says Vice Chancellor


TIRUCHI: Problems caused to students by the inordinate delay in publication of examination results has prompted Bharathidasan University to make it compulsory for affiliated colleges to depute teachers for central valuation.

Henceforth, the university will strictly stick to the exam diary, the Vice-Chancellor K.Meena assured at a meeting of the Senate on Saturday. Speaking at the close of a discussion on a resolution moved by M.Abdul Hakeem on the issue, the Vice-Chancellor cited a circular of the Tamil Nadu State Council for Higher Education empowering the university to withhold results of colleges that refuse to depute teachers for central valuation.

She requested colleges to keep the Controller of Examination updated on new appointments, transfers and retirements of teachers for making timely changes to the database.

Initiating the discussion, Dr. Hakeem said due to late publication of results, admission to post-graduate programmes in other universities and registration with employment exchange got affected. Members mentioned how paucity of evaluators caused hasty evaluation and suggested that the university correspond directly with the principals and fix responsibility on them. The situation, said Najimudeen, could be rectified by updating the database of evaluators and increasing the number of central valuation centres. S.Sekar called for adoption of best practices from other universities. He suggested a clear demarcation between valuation of regular and distance education papers. Examination and valuation for distance education papers must be conducted only on Saturdays and Sundays, he said.

Syndicate Member D.Thirugnanamoorthy announced that the university has created a new post of Deputy Controller of Examination exclusively to look after revaluation and re-totalling. Alongside, the university would explore the possibility of implementing the twin-vacation system so that the teachers remain in colleges on working days.

The system would be adopted on a trial and error basis during this semester and would be perfected for the subsequent semester, Dr. Meena assured. The house approved a related resolution brought in by P.Hemalatha to permit students to apply for revaluation without having to go through the process of obtaining the answer script. The inordinate delay in publication of revaluation results demoralised applicants who were usually top-scorers, members acknowledged.

By another resolution, Mohamed Mohideen pointed out that the delay in publication of results for students seeking revaluation and re-totalling was tantamount to wasting their time and money.

In the event of delay, the university has to refund the fee to the student, he insisted, describing the state of confusion in the minds of the applicants who are made to wait endlessly.

Members favoured a definite time frame for publication of results. Syndicate Member P.M.Mansure guaranteed that the reforms would be put in place before the start of the semester examinations.
