Gujarat Technological University (GTU) has offered students assignments to make up for insufficient attendance! The move has been made to salvage 124 careers of Ph.D students whose exam forms had been rejected recently citing insufficient attendance. Of the 194 students registered with the university for Ph.D in different subjects of engineering, pharmacy, management and computer applications, only 70 students had the 75 per cent qualifying attendance. Exam forms of the rest were withheld.
Now, the GTU is offering them option of completing one assignment each and submit it to their guides. If the students complete the assignment within the stipulated time, they will be allowed to take the exam in April. Ironically, the GTU registrar G. P. Vadodaria said that “the attendance for Ph.D students is not very important and the stress is mainly on the research. The GTU is celebrating research week. The attendance is required but it is not of supreme importance as in case of undergraduate and postgraduate students as there is no issue of loss of an academic year with these students”, said Vadodaria. Mean while, the GTU campus was abuzz as undergraduate students took exception to the partisan attitude of the GTU. There were also murmurs of Ph.D students being accommodated as many of them have top officials of GTU as their guides. The rules and regulations should be same for all. We should also be offered the option of doing extra assignments to make up for insufficient attendance, UG students said. The Ph.D students have to appear for first semester exam for which they are required to attend lectures over the weekend every Saturday and Sunday which are conducted by the GTU. Most students are lecturers.
