For nearly 80,000 students, pursuing second and third year BCom degree from colleges affiliated with the University of Pune (UoP), the wait for results seems to be perpetual.
Despite repetitive assurances from varsity administration that the results would be declared ‘soon’, the students have reached a conclusion that it is better to change the university rather than go through the same frustrating experience the next year. The results were supposed to be out in June.
Vishal Mundada, an SYBCom student who visited the UoP yesterday with a hope that the varsity would at least declare the result date, said, “I’ve been coming here for the last one month and each time I visited, exam department authorities said the results would be declared soon. But the wait is still not over. They should at least declare the exact date for the result.”
Another student said if possible she would like to change the university itself. “The worst thing is that no one entertains us.” When contacted, UoP’s Commerce faculty dean Dr Sudhakar Jadhavar said, “Though the written exam of SY and TY concluded by April-end, the assessment procedure was affected due to strike called by teachers. Despite that, we are just 15 days late. The result will be declared by Saturday.
We have decided to slap show cause notices to all those teachers who didn’t turn up for assessment work. Varsity’s law officer has already drafted the notices.” Controller of Examination (CoE) Dr V B Gaikwad said, “We are taking all efforts to declare results as soon as possible.
Unlike every year, this year the practical exam was held after the written exam and that’s why even though the written exam was over by April-end, practicals continued till May-end.” He too said that the result would be declared by Saturday.
Did you know?
As per rules, the university has to declare result within 45 days after the last paper of any course. So if the BCom written exam was completed by April-end, then the results should have been out by June 15.
