However, students were not satisfied with the results as 60% of them failed. Out of 600 students who appeared for M.A Sociology Part I exam in April 2017, 350 students scored below 40 marks in at least one of the four subjects. Many students have even scored zero marks in one of the four subjects. Students approached the helpdesk of the varsity to raise the issue claiming that they had done well in the exams.
