BENGALURU: Lecturers who committed mistakes while evaluating pre-university II scripts will soon face departmental action. The Department of Pre University Education has decided to act against such lecturers. The lecturers, besides receiving a notice, will also be blacklisted, said officials.
“As per department rules, every year we issue notices to lecturers who make mistakes during evaluation. There are instances where we stopped their increments too. But this time, we have decided to blacklist them.
We will also write to the government for some stringent action against them,” said a senior official.
Officials working in the examination section are counting the number of answer scripts which have a difference of more than six marks after revaluation.
“We will identify the lecturers who have evaluated those answer scripts and then prepare a list of their names. Later, they will be issued a notice seeking an explanation. Based on the explanation, action will be taken,” the official added.
According to the department, this year 1,414 answer scripts had a difference of four marks after revaluation. Last year, the number was 1,816.

‘Retain earlier marks’
Interestingly, many students who have got an additional four marks after revaluation are approaching the director of the department requesting to retain the earlier marks. “As per the department rules, we cannot retain earlier marks if the difference is -4 or +4. Many students and parents are approaching us to retain the earlier marks. But, such students should think before applying for revaluation as they even got their scanned copies,” said C Shika, Director of PUE department.
Revaluation conducted in secret place
For the first time, the PUE depart ment conducted revaluation in a secret place to avoid touts approaching the evaluators or officials. Every year, revaluation work would be condu- cted at the Gover nment PU College at Malleswaram 18th Cross, which is next to the depart ment’s head office.
