The students of National Law Institute University (NSIU) protested against the authorities regarding the new evaluation system. The students alleged that their results would be affected due to the new evaluation system.
One of the students expressed that teachers have failed to change their scale of marking as per change in the breakup of marks and have refused to explain marking system to students. On the other hand, some of the teachers even refused to change marking on being made aware of their mistake.
The institute already follows a rigorous system of curriculum and examination where a student has to take three semesters in a single year consist which consist of six exams.
Some of the students pointed that the students who secured good marks in the previous examination did not pass the examinations that were conducted in the current academic session due to the new evaluation system. However, the authorities of NLIU did not comment on the issue.
A similar problem has occurred in Visheswaraya Technical University, Bangalore where more than half of the students out of 4.5 lakh students failed in the semester examination that was conducted in the month of July. Protesting against the management, the students went on a hunger strike. The students who scored single digit marks earlier secured 65 or more marks after the re-evaluation of answer scripts.
Earlier, the students of Faculty of Law, Delhi University also went on hunger strike over the mass failures. Around 50 percent of students failed in the semester exams, and some of the students were marked absent even though they appeared for the exam.
The authorities of varsities have to take necessary steps to avoid such mistakes while evaluating the answer scripts.
