Finally, Gujarat Technological University has taken the necessary steps to make answer sheets available to the students. Ten students, who had appealed under Right to Information Act, were called by the university to check their answer sheets on Wednesday, 4th Jan, 2012.
Five of the students were of Bachelor of Engineering, one of Diploma Engineering, two of MBA and two students of Bachelor of Pharmacy. Overall, the university had to distribute 15 answer sheets among these students. A GTU source said, Ten students had applied to see their answer sheets between September and October under RTI Act. But, we had declined the offer at that time. The applicants appealed and following the Supreme Court order, we sent out letters for them to be present on Wednesday. We had opted for the open method systems were they could check their original answer sheets. The students and parents were pleased by GTUs move. One of the parents Rohit Desai said, often due to small mistakes by evaluators, the career path of the student changes entirely. This system could ensure that evaluators remain alert while grading. If they grade unfairly, they would be caught eventually. Saloni Dhawal, one of the students present on Wednesday, said, I thought I had written the exam well but I ended up scoring very low. I wanted to know if I had made mistakes or the evaluator had. I am glad I can spot the mistakes and learn from them. Vice Chancellor Akshai Aggarwal said, this facility is great for both the students and faculty. But the problem is that it requires manpower to stay active. For universities that have lakhs of students, this system is difficult to implement. For universities with few students, the system can be put into practice easily. The number of students applying is bound to increase as awareness of the system grows. SC Ruled Pro RTI: The Supreme Court ruled in August that students unhappy with their examination scores class X and XII, entrance exam for professional courses as well as job recruitment tests can take a look at their answer-sheets by moving an application under the Right to Information Act. So far, only re-tabulation of marks was possible. Now, the court has provided for re-evaluation of answer sheets, which will factor in whether the examiner missed out on awarding marks for some answers.
