BANGALORE: The revaluation results of II PU courses,  which were declared on Wednesday, revealed that marks were changed in nearly 900 cases due to lapses by evaluators.

As per data available from the Department of Pre-University Education (PUE), the department received 13,591 applications for revaluation (19,700 scripts). Of that, marks in 1,774 scripts were changed.

Errors in 891 of these scripts were attributed to totalling mistakes and improper evaluation.

According to an official, the difference post revaluation ranges between 2 and 21 marks. “We cannot consider a difference less than six to change the marks,” the official clarified.

Refunds or

Money Lost?

Meanwhile, the department is firm on not refunding the fee students paid to get a photocopy of the answer script and for revaluation.

Speaking to Express, Narasimha Nayak, Joint Director, PUE department, said, “We will take disciplinary action against the teachers who have committed mistakes during evaluation. Whatever it is, finally it is the students who benefit and there is no question of refunds”.

He said notices will be issued and penalty will be collected according to the Karnataka Civil Service Rules.

However, candidates who have got their marks changed are in no mood to listen to explanations. “The department collected `1,200 for revaluation. I got to know that a part of my script was not valued only after getting a photocopy. It is not justice if they don’t pay us back,” said Neha, a candidate.

Another student, Krupa P, feels the department’s stand is anti-student.

“We agree that action will be initiated against those who committed mistakes. But the department collects penalty from them (errant teachers) and also a fee from us,” she pointed out.
