With the intention to minimise discrepancies while checking answer sheets, Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) has decided to introduce a ‘model answer paper’ for engineering students, during a senate meeting held on Saturday.
The meeting which took place at SPPU, had vice-chancellor Nitin Karmalkar, registrar Arvind Shaligram, exam controller Ashok Chavan , MLA Apurva Hire and vice-president of Pune Zilla Parishad Vivek Walse Patil present.
Among several issues, ranging from budget and infrastructure to academics, the Senate took the decision to provide the model answer paper to further reduce repeated complaints by students regarding discrepancies and unfair assessments . These papers would further help students understand the type of answers that are expected by examiners.
A question bank will also be prepared to minimise errors in preparing question papers, the VC said. As per this provision, the questions for the final examinations will be set as per the question bank, which will be prepared by various experts and professors of the subject. If successful, authorities have plans to replicate them for other faculties and departments.
University runs Rs 36 crore loss
At the meeting, the final report of the varsity for 2016-17 worth Rs 296.90 crore was also approved.
According to SPPU authorities, this year the varsity has been struck by various global and national issues, like GST, that have financially impacted the organisation. This year, the expenditure of the university surpassed its earning, leading to a financial loss of little over Rs 36 crore.
