Solving the issue of discrepancy in final year results of 11 students from MIT college of Engineering, the Savitribai Phule Pune University has decided to reissue fresh marksheets to the college, said officials.
Previously, a total of 11 students from the Information technology department of MIT college of Engineering, Kothrud, were at the risk of losing their placements, and a year due to errors in their marksheets issued by the Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU). All the students having opted for a particular elective, had been marked absent.
When contacted for a comment, Controller of Examinations, SPPU, Dr Ashok Chavan said, “There had been a computing error, which has been spotted now. As this would cause a huge problem to the students, we have decided to issue fresh marksheets with the corrections.”
The principal of the college, Dr Anil S Hiwale explained the problem, “We had submitted the updated marks through the online process, back in April. The University usually takes it from there to publish the final results, and it seems some error took place there. The results were out on July 12, when these 11 students spotted the issue. In cognisance, we did send out a letter to the university, requesting investigation.”
Today in the evening we received the soft copies of the revised results. The University has now responded to our letter. Hopefully, the hard copies of the results will be sent by Thursday, he added.
“A total of 11 students had opted for the elective subject, Mobile Computing, and all of us were marked absent for both oral and term work. Thus, none of us have managed to pass the exam, as per the marksheets sent by the University,” said Aniket Ingole, one of the students. Due to the discrepancy in the reports, students who had been placed or were planning options for higher education, had to stall the process due to this issue.
“Some of us who have been placed, we need to share our documents with the companies, and we cannot show this. For those who want to do MBA or go for higher education, their admissions have been stalled due to this issue,” said another studentAkshay Gaikwad.
“It has been over two weeks that we have been trying to reach the University authorities for help but in vain,” Ingole added.
