Students of the Tiruvannamalai Government Arts and Science College, affiliated to Tiruvalluvar University, boycotted classes on Thursday and staged a demonstration condemning the varsity for publishing the examination results, which were reportedly full of errors, on its website.
Listing the mistakes found in the results of examination of undergraduate (UG) and post graduate (PG) held in November and December 2013, that were published online on March 10, the students said several of them were marked absent in internal and external exams despite taking them. Several students fumed that they were given single digit marks, some of the students were marked absent and many were awarded marks for questions outside syllabus.
Principal of the college M Subramanian said, “I have also sent a circular to heads of departments (HoD) in the college to collect the information from the students in their respective department on the errors. After collecting them, we will send them to the Controller of Examination of the university for rectification,” he said.
