Warns of abolishing internal marking

VICE –CHANCELLOR  of Uttar Pradesh Technical University (UPTU), Dr Durg Singh Chauhan, has taken  a serious view of the fact that students poor at studies get  good marks in the internal assessment in different courses run by the university.

In a letter issued to the head of  each technical institution, the VC   said that it had been observed  that students whose performance in the  final examinations had been very poor  received good marks in internal assessment.

He warned the institutional heads  against giving good marks to undeserving  candidates and said if the practice continued, the university may think of abolishing the  system of internal assessment altogether.

He said it seemed that the internal assessment marks were being given under pressure. But in the interest of the high academic  standards of the university and the students, such pressures should be ignored. He said in case the practice of awarding good marks to the  weak students was not checked, the university would only count the marks awarded in the  written examination for  fixing the division or grades of the students.

The directives were given to the  institutes affiliated to UPTU running MBA , BCA , B Tech, B Architecture, B Pharma and Hotel and Catering Technology courses. In each course, there are four semesters and in each semester  50 marks are given on the basis of internal assessment of the students’ performance.Often the students who got poor marks in the written examination succeeded in  getting a good division due to internal assessment marks.  This practice depressed the hardworking students.
