BENGALURU: Hundred of students who have recently taken the first and third semester exams for B.Com and BBM at Bangalore University are alleging that the university has done irresponsible evaluation.
The students, belonging to Maharani’s Women’s College for Arts and Commerce, RC College and Government first grade college, Ramanagar, staged a protest in front of Jnana Jyothi Auditorium on Monday demanding free revaluation.
According to the students, 80 per cent of them have failed in the semester examination held in December. “I am shocked to see my marks in Corporate Accounting where they gave me a single digit score,” said a student of RC College. “I never secured a single digit score in any subject and I was expecting more than 65 marks, said Ramya, a B.Com student from the same college.
The students also alleged that failing several students was one of the tricks played by the university to make money.
“We have to pay `890 for revaluation of one subject and `750 to get photo copy. If we all apply for revaluation, you can imagine the amount the university will get,” said Girish Gowda, a student. The students added that, even if they apply for photo copies, they do not get them in most cases.
In-charge V-C Prof Jagadish Prakash tried to convince them by saying he would convene a meeting with principals of their colleges. But as the students did not agree, he said, “Those who wish to apply for revaluation can apply by paying the prescribed fee. I assure that if they score well, then the amount will be refunded.”
The students also demanded stern action against the faculties who have evaluated their answer scripts.
