Mangalore, Sep 12, 2014: Addressing a press meet September 11, a section of students belonging to Vivekananda College, Puttur who had not succeeded in the final semester LLB exams conducted by Karnataka State Law University faulted those who improperly evaluated their answer books for failure.
While one law student revealed surprising pointers on the valuation of her 2nd semester answer sheets.
Another student of the college stated that from about 30 students of her class, more than two thirds are facing shocking valuation errors. Top marks given to the class is below 60 percent which is inconceivable. Fear is again the key for the students to remain silent as they are unable confront the action of the University. There was a strong general demand revaluation of the papers and rectifying the faults and correct matters.
In one glaring case of gross error a student stated, "I did not clear one of the subjects in the second semester, revaluation to did not change my status. I was to sit for re-exam, but, when the marks sheet of the previous semester exam came to my hand soon after; marks showed I had actually passed, and I need not have appeared for the re-exam. Karnataka State Law University systems are shocking to say the least, rectification is demanded."
The students were clear that further action was called for and sought to serve a notice to the university and approach the state governor, home minister, as well as file a writ petition in the high court of Karnataka.
President of the Human Rights and Corruption Eradication Union, Puttur taluk pointed out there is gross injustice in an institutions based on justice; the negligence of evaluators is unheard of. He stated, "That the two students who revealed their cases, had appeared for the exam of final year LLB in June 2014.
The valuation took place at Hubli, to the shock of the students both the students had failed in one subject each and the re-evaluation the results too brought no correction. When a student obtained a copy of the answer sheets through RTI and consulted the lecturers of same college and another college they came to the conclusion that she was supposed to get above 50 percent, and not 28 as after revaluation.
It is certain that irresponsible evaluation of the answer sheets and as it is a very serious matter and a proper rectification done to the ends of justice to the students. The concerned officials should take strict action against the valuators." Many concerned students and public were present.
