RU stu­dents to move high court for re-eval­u­a­tion of mark sheets

Hindustan Times ST (Jaipur) - - Rajasthan - HT Cor­re­spon­dent htraj@htlive.in

Al­leg­ing ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties in how their sup­ple­men­tary exam an­swer sheets were eval­u­ated, more than 40 stu­dents of Ra­jasthan Univer­sity have de­cided to move the high court Mon­day with pleas for re-eval­u­a­tion.

Stu­dents HT spoke to said sev­eral an­swers in their sheets were left unchecked while some cited er­ror in count­ing the marks.

Un­der the Right to In­for­ma­tion (RTI) Act, they had ob­tained their an­swer sheets of pa­pers for which they had to take the sup­ple­men­tary ex­am­i­na­tion, af­ter fail­ing the main ex­am­i­na­tion, the an­swer sheets for which were re-eval­u­ated as well.

Ra­ma­vatar Singh, a BSc stu­dent of RK Sci­ence Col­lege, Jaipur, said he re­ceived “ex­actly the same marks” in math­e­mat­ics pa­per on both oc­ca­sions. “Any teacher who eval­u­ates my copy thor­oughly would give dou­ble the marks that I have re­ceived. Zero marks have been given for sev­eral right an­swers. Many (stu­dents) like me have re­ceived sim­i­lar marks at ev­ery stage (in­clud­ing the re-eval­u­a­tion of the main ex­am­i­na­tion an­swer sheet). How is that pos­si­ble?”

Ra­jasthan Univer­sity regis­trar Ke­sar Lal Meena said the univer­sity “can­not act in the mat­ter” as there is no pro­vi­sion to re-eval­u­ate an­swer sheets of the sup­ple­men­tary ex­am­i­na­tion.

“The eval­u­a­tion was com­pletely in­ad­e­quate. Now that the (univer­sity) ad­min­is­tra­tion does not want to act, the only op­tion left is to ap­proach the court for jus­tice. We might lose a year and still no­body is lis­ten­ing to us,” said Anurag Sain, a BSc stu­dent of Shri Bhawani Nike­tan PG Boys Col­lege, Jaipur. He added that some stu­dents have cleared the en­trance ex­am­i­na­tions to pur­sue their mas­ter’s course but now face un­cer­tain times with their bach­e­lor’s course stuck due to them “fail­ing” the sup­ple­men­tary ex­am­i­na­tion.
