THE SECOND year BDS results were declared on Friday nearly three months after the exam. With the pass percentage being 55 per cent, there was no adverse reaction from the students, giving the varsity and college officials a sense of relief.
It may be recalled that the final year students of the Government Dental College had gone on rampage owing to ‘poor’ results, which too were declared quite late.
The officials have said the students are more or less satisfied with the results and there has been no resentment this time.
As many as 800 students of all the three dental colleges in the City had been facing anxious moments as the exam results were delayed by almost two to three months this time.
Students fear that if the results are late, they get less time to send revaluation requests and even revaluation results come out late.
And in a situation of that kind they remain confused whether they will be able to sit for the next exam, which is conducted twice a year in March and September.
If the results are declared late, the whole process gets delayed and there always is a chance that a student may lag behind his peers by at least six months to one year.
There are three dental colleges in the City, all affiliated to Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya (DAVV). The Government Dental College has a batch of 40 students (total 160), College of Dental Science and Hospital (Rau) has 60 students in each batch (total 240) while the Modern Dental College has 100 students every year (total 400).
Deputy Registrar (Examination) Dr R K Baghel was not available for comment on the reason for the delay in declaring the result.
