BANGALORE: Even though the Pre-university Department has adopted the CBSE pattern for science courses last year, it has not changed its revaluation policy.

This is likely to affect a large number of students who have applied for revaluation. According to students and lecturers, the department should reduce the minimum marks needed for revaluation.

According to the CBSE pattern, science students attempt 70:30 (70 theory, 30 practical) for which the minimum revaluation score should have been reduced to 4.02 (4 marks).

“The department did not even think of changing the policy according to the new pattern and this is affecting many students,” said a senior faculty attending revaluation work.

According to the existing policy, students must secure six marks in revaluation otherwise it will not be added and original marks not be changed.  “The six marks was fixed as per the earlier pattern of 90:10, where students used to attempt theory for 90 marks and 10 for practical. Now when the theory mark itself has changed, why have they not changed the revaluation marks?” said another faculty.

This is the first batch of students which attempted second PU final exams in the new pattern. According to teachers involved in revaluation, most students got four and five marks in revaluation and if it is considered they will pass.

Reacting to this, Narasimha Nayak, joint director, PUE Department, said, “Some of the parents have brought this to the notice of the deparmtnet verbally. But, if there is written representation on this, the department may think of changing it.”


Total number of applications received for revaluation: 19,365 (50 per cent from science stream)

Physics 3,565

Chemistry 1,476

Mathematics  1,819

Biology 1,602
