Vice-Chancellor of  Thiruvalluvar University Dr P Gunasekaran has said that any error in the publishing of the UG and PG examination results will be rectified.

Responding to complaints raised by a section of the students about the various types of errors in the results published online recently, he said out of the 8 lakh- plus students, the errors had occurred only in 2,000-plus marksheets, which would be set right immediately before the printed mark sheets were issued. The errors could be partly in the data provided by the colleges and students also, he noted.

Students of Voorhees College here, C Kandasami Naidu College for Women in Cuddalore and Government Thirumagal Mills College in  Gudiyattam, while expressing shock over the errors found in the results published on Monday, urged the university to correct the same immediately. The errors, according to them, included the absence of internal assessment marks, wrong paper codes and marking a student absent for external examination.

The Vice-Chancellor said since the university had to outsource an agency for the examination-related work, the errors had crept into the manual data entry work. “We had also issued a disclaimer on the website also about the inadvertent errors that could be corrected,” he added. All the errors were being rectified and the printed marksheets would be free from errors, he said adding, “From next semester, we would be going in for online data entry from the colleges, as part of the full-fledged examination automation system, that would avoid these types of problems.” Gunasekaran said the syndicate had given its nod for the appointment of 55 regular staffers for the administration and the process of recruitment would begin after the elections. The university had obtained the 12 B status recently and four proposals including setting up of a coaching centre for SC/ST students and a women study centre had been forwarded to the UGC, he added further.
