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