Engineering students: Online revaluation results by Aug 31

Nagpur:  Good news for aggrieved engineering students of Nagpur University as their long wait for revaluation results is likely to end soon.

Newly-appointed pro-VC Pramod Yeole on Monday declared that all the pending revaluation results would be declared before August 31, eight months after the semester exam in November-December.

He added that not a single student appeared for 90 exams, but NU’s entire workforce was utilized to draft question papers.
“I’ve directed them to declare all pending results before August 31. They were delayed on account of various reasons, but now we’ve told them to clear the backlog. We want to apply it for all faculties during next year’s summer exams,” the pro-VC said.

He admitted that the results were inordinately delayed due to teachers’ reluctance to carry out mandatory evaluation work, but now things were slowly moving to normalcy.

Earlier, NU had issued show cause notices to 300 lecturers for not reporting to evaluation duty, though it failed to make any substantial impact. “I conveyed a meeting of all principals on Saturday, requesting them to send teachers for evaluation as results of all faculties were affected. It included their colleges as well,” he said.

Explaining the delay in results declaration of summer exams which were stretched beyond two to three months, and even commencement of academic session, Yeole said he has directed the Exam Section officials to declare all results before July 31. “Today, 42 results are declared including that of some engineering branches. So far, about 450/956 results are out.”

However, NU website still shows that only 357/956 results were declared so far which means only 38% were declared so far and a big proportion of 62% is still pending.

The pro-VC informed that Board of Examinations (BoE) would be conducting emergent meeting on Tuesday to discuss students’ complaints regarding out of syllabus questions. Even the Management Council would be meeting this week for finalizing draft for Oberoi Robotics Centre. Fate of MKCL would also be decided in the same meeting. “The financial and technical aspects are to be looked after by actor Vivek Oberoi and ABB. We’re just providing the infrastructure,” he said.
