PREPARATIONS FOR holding six-monthly examinations in the most religious manner at the degree colleges here are being made on a war footing to meet the deadline fixed by Chhatrapati Sahu Ji Maharaj University (CSJMU).
It may be recalled that the university through its order had directed the colleges affiliated to it to hold six-monthly examinations from December 16 on the pattern of the university’s final examination.
Earlier, every college conducted the examinations in its own way. While a few colleges printed their question papers and supplied the answer books, others colleges did not bother to get the question papers printed.
They either wrote the questions on the blackboard or issued photocopies of the typed or handwritten question papers.
At some colleges the students were also allowed to carry answer books to their respective homes and submit the answer books after writing answers. The practice had given a seriousblow to the sanctity of the examinations.
However, from this year the university has put a curb on holding the examination in a casual way and has directed the colleges to submit the printed question papers, timetable, attendance of the students and the sample answer books to the university.
Directives of the university have not only upset the students but also made many colleges quite uncomfortable as they did not make any use of the examination fee collected from each student at the beginning of the session and reportedly misappropriated the same.
Now the possibility of misappropriating the examination fee was eliminated.
Colleges would have to spend the examination fee without any excuse.
Also, most of the students who seldom attended the class lectures throughout the year are now afraid of their attendance falling short. The students have now started attending class lectures. One can witness a big crowd of the students at every college from morning to evening till the classes are over.
Colleges teachers are however happy as they were getting sufficient number of students to teach.
They were worried that in case the students avoided attending class lecture the recognition of the college could be endangered.
They hailed the decision of the university and said that the directives should have been issued a long time ago.
