the delay in the declaration of results by the examination department.

The fate of 500 students is at stake with the delay in results.

In addition to this, a few post graduate departments within the university have still not received the answer papers of students for assessment leading to further delay.

” However, even we are facing immense pressure. We have to check the functioning of each and every department with the introduction of the new evaluation system. Also, there are no teachers available for the assessment of the papers because of vacation period.” In order to speed up the assessment of papers, university officials had introduced the computerised evaluation system where in papers were assessed by moderators and later scanned to cross check the marks.
