BENGALURU: Securing 100 per cent results has become a prestige issue for a few pre-university colleges in the city, due to which they are allegedly denying hall tickets to poor performers. According to some students who were denied hall tickets at Reddy Jana Sangha PU College, and Seshadripuram PU college, they have not received their hall tickets despite being eligible to write the exams as far as attendance is concerned.
The students alleged that the college authorities were not issuing hall tickets as they were all poor performers in academics. A student from Reddy Jana Sangha College said, “I had secured less marks in three subjects in the test conducted by the college in December 2016. Following this, they decided I would fail in the final exams and denied me the hall ticket.”Another student from Seshadripuram College said, “I was told I had low attendance and was denied the hall ticket.
A few of my friends have not received it just because they failed in some subjects during preparatory exams. We have decided to meet director of the Department of PU Education seeking his intervention.” Officials of the PU department said, “We cannot act without a complaint being filed from the students.” However, Reddy Jana Sangha College principal Suresh said, “It is just a ploy the students used to put pressure on us as they have shortage of attendance.”
