MYSORE UNIVERSITY 2011- Degree Results of many Degree results out, students left in the lurchThe University of Mysore has announced degree exam results days ahead of closure of admissions to PG courses. But the students whose results are withheld are left in the lurch.
The BA results were announced on Tuesday while BBM, BCom and BSc results were out on Monday. On Tuesday, students and parents rushed to the Crawford Hall saying there are lapses in the results. While the time is running out for admissions to PG courses, there is no word from the varsity on the extension of the last date which is July 22. But registrar (evaluation) B Ramu ruled out there are lapses. "I don't know anything about the problems being faced by students following the announcement of results. We've one lakh degree students and if some 100-200 students have a problem that cannot be termed as confusion," he said.
The varsity had delayed the results and postponed the last date for admission for PG courses from July 8 to July 15 to July 22.
Students, who rushed to Pareeksha Bhavan in the Crawford Hall, accused the varsity officials of mismanagement. They were angry that the registrar was not in office to answer them. "Many of our results are withheld. There are problems with the markssheets," they said.
The students requested their names to be withheld fearing trouble from the officials. One of them from a Hassan college said: "The internal assessment marks were missing and when asked, the officials said they will check." Another student said when he pointed to the missing internal assessment marks, he was told to pay more for a new marks card.
The students were joined by parents, who blamed the varsity for mismanagement. "They fail to give error-free marks cards and it is our kids who will suffer, they stated." At one point, when V-C V G Talawar came to the Pareeksha Bhavan, a girl wept, an eye witness stated.
Ramu blamed the principals for it. Some of the college principals have not sent the internal assessment marks to the varsity. This led to a delay in announcement of results, he told The Times of India. There are 1.06 lakh degree students and if some 100-200 students have not got the results, the varsity cannot be held responsible, he asserted. "Even if the internal assessment marks in one subject is not available, we cannot announce the results," he stated. When asked the number of students whose results are withheld, Ramu said he wouldn't know. "It is only when they approach us that we will get to know the problem," he stated.
About the students' anxiety that the last date for submission of applications is nearing, he shot back: "There are three more days. Plus, none of the varsities in Karnataka has started PG admission process."
