A day after it was revealed that nine out of 11 blacklisted teacher education colleges were allowed to conduct practical exams on last Friday, Bangalore University (BU) Registrar (Evaluation) R K Somashekhar ruled out any further examinations in these colleges.

“The 11 colleges conducted the practical exam as they had already finished theory exams. However, we cannot allow these colleges to have any further examinations until their fate is decided,” Prof Somashekhar told reporters at his Pareeksha Bhavan office in response to a clarification sought from him.

The Task Force Committee on Teacher Education is due to submit its report on the state of teacher education colleges and the report has to be discussed by the Syndicate.

“Until this happens, there is no question of allowing these colleges to have any further exams, including the second semester exams to be held in November,” he said.

Prof Somashekhar denied having played any role in allowing the practical examinations in the nine blacklisted colleges. “On September 10, when the permission was given, I was in the USA to attend a conference. It was the in-charge Registrar who signed the order. My name has been dragged unnecessarily,” he claimed.
