More than two months since it conducted the final-year engineering (BE) first semester examination, the University of Pune (UoP) has yet to declare the result for the same. The delay, which has become a pattern over the last few years, is giving anxious moments to several BE students. The university rules provide that the results have to be declared within 45 days from the end of the exam. A similar delay had occurred last year too. While the university authorities are maintaining that the BE results will be declared soon, there are contradictory versions from the officials, associated with the exam process, regarding reasons behind the ongoing delay.
A senior official, who did not wish to be identified, said; There was a change in the office of the controller of examination (CoE) recently. The paper-checking work through the centralised assessment process (CAP) has been completed but, we now require the university mark list to be done in the name of the new CoE. This has taken some time. Dean of UoPs engineering faculty G. K. Kharate said, “The results are expected to be declared in next three to four days. He, however, avoided getting into the specifics of the delay on the grounds that the CoE has been handling the process”. An official at the CoE office said, “We have received the marks in a compact disc (CD) form from the CAP authorities but, the process of issuing of grace marks is now under progress. The results will be out soon”. The CoE officials have extended familiar sounding reasons ranging from increase in number of engineering colleges to manpower shortage, non-availability of domain-specific experts for certain subjects and programmers hired for Census duties, among others. On their part, the students have complained that the delay is affecting their preparation for the second semester of the ongoing academic year (AY) 2011-12. Similarly, students from the previous AY, 2010-11, with some of their papers left to be cleared, have complained that they cannot plan their future moves vis-vis seeking jobs. The UoP accounts for 108 engineering colleges across its area of Pune, Ahmednagar and Nashik districts, 15 more than the 93 colleges last year. On an average, close to 1.50 lakh students from under-graduate and post-graduate engineering courses appear the exams held in December and May / June, for each of the two semesters of an academic year. Some of these also belong to the previous semester with one or two subjects left to be cleared. Considering five subjects with two sections for each course, the number of papers that go for assessment works out to almost 15 lakh for the 1.50 lakh students, the CoE official said. Against this, the university gets barely 3,000 teachers for the engineering CAP.
