Upset students of Kandhasami Naidu College for Women (KNC) here held an agitation at the college entrance on Wednesday over the discrepancies in their semester marks sheet.
Around 2,000 girls study in the UG and PG levels of the KNC college, which comes under Thiruvalluvar University in Vellore.
The university’s 2013 semester results released on Monday came as a huge shock to the students, as the marks awarded to most of them were completely contrary to their academic performance.
Ruing that such confusions defeat the purpose of holding semester exams, Sangeetha, a student, said, “My parents are rebuking me for the low grade awarded to me. In spite of good preparation, the marks displayed on the website are totally irrelevant and unacceptable. I have not even obtained the minimum pass percentage in some papers.
“Further, those who skipped the exams were awarded cent percent, while those who attended the exams have been marked off as absent,” lamented
Sangeetha. The college faculty has pushed off blame for the chaos in the mark sheets on the Thiruvalluvar University administration.
Owing to the confusion, the college resembled a fish market with students crowding the faculty rooms seeking a resolve for this confusion. “The girls thronged the staff room and were shouting out to rectify the errors in their marks sheet. Many of them broke down on the college premises. Discrepancies were found in the mark sheets of over 80 per cent of the students,” a teacher said.
