The low 27 per cent result of first semester degree engineering students announced by Gujarat Technological University (GTU) has raised a big question mark over the quality of teaching in the engineering colleges in the state. Analysis of the result reveals that unlike the conventional belief that the low result is due to poor quality of students.
Students with 35-45 per cent HSC marks had gained admission in engineering courses and also poor teaching may be one of the prime reasons. Government engineering colleges, which see high merit in admissions, too have recorded equally poor result. There are 12-odd government engineering colleges that have posted a result lower than the average 27 per cent over all result of 97 colleges. The highest result has been posted by Grant-in-aid College, Birla Mahavishwavidyalaya, Vallabh Vidya Nagar. The two engineering colleges in the campus have posted 72.36 per cent and 61.90 per cent result respectively. The lowest result has been recorded by self-financed engineering colleges at Tuwa, Godhra where only 3.15 per cent students have passed the first semester exam. Amongst the government engineering colleges, the highest 56.63 per cent result has been posted by Vishwakarma Engineering College, Chandkheda while LD Engineering College is second with 54.93 per cent result. Palanpur Government Engineering College has recorded the lowest result with only 10.09 per cent students clearing the exam. Over all, there are 67 colleges that have recorded pass percent lower that the overall average results of 27 per cent. There are 15 colleges where less than ten percent students have passed the first semester GTU exam. GTU vice chancellor A. K. Aggrawal said the low result even in government colleges is because the quality of teaching in colleges has gone down. "Number of hours of teaching has gone down in colleges. There is lot less teaching happening in the state colleges which has resulted students faring badly in exams. Scarcity of teachers is an all-India phenomenon", Aggrawal said.
