VIJAYAWADA: Managements of private colleges had their say and ensured there was no jumbling system for intermediate practical exams for the current academic year.
Minister Ganta Srinivas Rao, on Monday, categorically stated that there would not be jumbling system for intermediate practical exams for the current academic year but will be implemented from next academic year onwards. Recently, when some representatives of private colleges, which have been opposing the jumbling system, met CM, who was initially reluctant to listen to their request stating he wanted to change the education system and for it tough measures were needed. However, when they had reasoned that jumbling system would put the students of the state at disadvantage during competitive exams where marks in intermediate were given weightage. The protests across the state by students from private colleges had also influenced the government’s decision.
