In an important verdict, the Bombay High Court directed to continue with the new revaluation system of double checking that Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS) had introduced earlier this year.
The new revaluation process has been protested by students of the MUHS, seeking back the old system of revaluation. In the old method, students could not only apply for revaluation, but could also obtain the photocopies of the answer sheets. Later, this system was replaced by a new system of double-checking.
Disagreed with the new system, students approached the HC with their demand of bringing back the old one. But, the court on 08 October 2013 pulls out a decision in favor of the university. After receiving a copy of the court order, MUHS vice-chancellor made the university's stand clear on 22 October 2013 at a press conference held at the campus.
Two examiners will evaluate exam papers and the average mean of the marks calculated by them will be considered as the final score", said the VC.
The VC further asserted that the universities in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka are also involved in the practice of double-checking. In fact, the efficiency of this system has already been proved on a global front.
The students also demanded that in case the old revaluation method could not be revived, at least the highest marks should be considered in the new system instead of the mean marks given by both the moderators. However, according to the HC's order, this also would not be possible to follow.
