Students of Voorhees College have urged the district administration to rectify the errors in the results of their semester examinations published recently. They also threatened to boycott the Lok Sabha polls if the matter was not looked into.

The students, who submitted a petition to the district administration in this regard recently, said the results of the examinations conducted by Thiruvalluvar University during November-December 2013 had several errors.

They wanted the administration to take steps to rectify the mistakes and publish the results at the earliest keeping in mind their future, said Silambarasan, one of the student-representatives.

If the errors are not rectified at the earliest, they would boycott the elections, they said further.

The members of the Association of University Teachers have also extended their support to their protest and assured to boycott the elections, the students added.

On Thursday last, nearly 300 students of Mazharul Uloom College in Ambur had squatted on the NH-46 opposite to Ambur Bus Stand, protesting the exam results published by the Tiruvalluvar University.

The students marched towards the bus and blocked the traffic on either side of the NH around 4 pm. The police restored the traffic within 10 minutes, after using a mild force to disperse the students. The students said most of them had been marked absent and awarded fail marks.
