Thiruvalluvar University has allayed the fears of students and teachers who had complained about the errors in the results of various examinations that had been published online on March 10. The examinations were held in November-December 2013. They were: undergraduate/postgraduate semester/non-semester/choice-based credit system (CBCS) old and new syllabus examinations.
The Vice-Chancellor of the university Dr P Gunasekaran said that the errors occurred only in the case of small number of students who appeared for the arrear examinations. Of the 2,489 errors detected out of the eight lakh- plus answer papers, 1,700 had been rectified. The rest would be rectified and the corrected statement of marks of candidates would be sent to the colleges within next two days.
From next semester, the entire examination process would be automated to eliminate errors. The situation would further improve from the next academic year when the university would start following a uniform syllabus of the CBCS, he added.
The Vice-Chancellor Gunasekaran said after the university recently obtained the 12 B status, four proposals had been forwarded to the UGC, seeking a grant of `32 lakh.
These included establishment of equal opportunity placement cell, special coaching centre for SC/ST students and a coaching centre for the NET. He said the university would be seeking funds to improve library facility; establish women’s hostel;and improve research facilities in the course of time. For the first time, the university would be preparing a ‘vision document’ and a financial regulation document.
