MG university have allegedly violated the norms and regulations in awarding extra marks to the students. Over 140 students passed the engineering exam with the grace marks awarded by the syndicate. The syndicate has decided to award grace marks to all the failed engineering students on the basis of an application submitted by a girl requesting for grace marks. The syndicate has recommended to offer up to 5 marks as moderation additionally to the existing moderation for students who failed in only one subject in any of the semester.
As a result, 140 students cleared the exam and have received the certificates. 60 more applications requesting for grace marks is under the consideration of the syndicate members.More than 200 applications have been received by the university on the basis of the new regulation passed by the syndicate. Even a student who failed to crack 6 supplementary exams became an engineer recently.
Students who have failed in each semester have approached the syndicate members with their request collectively. It was on April 30, the syndicate issued this bizarre recommendation. The Registrar passed this order on May 15.
Until 2018, various universities in Kerala have been conducting BTech exams. Since then, the engineering exams were run by Technical University of Kerala. MG university is currently in charge of Thodupuzha Engineering College. The management authority of the college will soon be handed over to the technical university.
Chennithala lashes out against minister
Thiruvananthapuram: Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala criticised Minister for Higher Education K. T. Jaleel in connection with allegations that a student of MG University was granted extra marks to help him pass the university examination in which he actually failed. The extra marks were granted with the knowledge of the minister. Chennithala asked if the minister's intervention was as per law.
A serious corruption has come to light. We demand judicial probe into this. The minister has granted marks earlier also. At that time, he claimed that he did it as part of humanitarian move. How can a minister for higher education grant extra marks, Chennithalaasked. Intervention in administrative affairs is possible in universities, but not in academics. UDF will organise strong protests against this, Chennithala stated.
Replying to the allegation, Jaleel claimed the allegations as baseless.
Violation of norms are as follows
*The Pass Board Committee has the authority to issue grace marks prior to declaration of results. Only the board can decide the amount of grace marks to be given to students.
*Neither the Education Minister nor the Syndicate board member can exercise any authority to award grace marks.
*If the results are declared, then grace marks could be given only through the revaluation of the concerned answer sheets.
Explanation sought from VC
Principal of Higher Education Dr Usha Titus has sought an explanation from the Vice Chancellor Dr. Sabu Thomas over the mark moderation allegation levelled against the university.
