New University rule to allow re-examination for passed students in the pipeline

Nagpur News: Students who lose out on the opportunity to sit for competitive exams because of fewer marks, will not have to face this problem in the near future. Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU) is working to sort this problem out. The University Draft Ordinance and Statute Committee has been holding meetings over the past few days, to discuss the possibility of upgradation of marks. The new rule will be formulated and implemented by February.

Even students who have already passed can benefit from this new rule. Students, who can’t appear for competitive exams because of low percentage, can appear for one or two papers again and increase their marks. Students will get 5 such attempts to increase their marks. Many students who have completed their graduation and post graduation but were unable give MPSC, UPSC, Banking and other types of exam will now benefit. For example, if a student has scored 53% and he/she requires 55% for competitive exam, he can increase his marks by reappearing for one or two papers.

Currently, only students who have failed are given another chance to give the exam. Only they can give the entire paper again and be issued a new mark sheet, not students who have passed. Advocate Manmohan Bajpyee, Member, Draft Ordinance and Statute Committee, said, “Upgradation of marks facility will help the students who want to participate in competitive exams and are unable to because of low percentage.”
