Delhi University has decided to get back to its normal evaluation process from that of getting the answer sheets checked by multiple examiners that were started quite recently by the university authorities last year. The re-checking of the answer sheets involved checking of the answer sheets of the students by more than one examiner which was both time consuming and eerie for the examiners.
The Joint Registrar (Academic) Ram Dutt has pointed out in a notification that, “The re-evaluation of answer sheets, which had become infructuous because of introduction of checking of answer sheets by multiple examiners, will be reverted back and answer sheets will be examined by single examiner.”
The university officials had previously decided to scrap the re-evaluation system and replace it with the ‘re-checking’ process instead so that students would be allowed only to apply for the rechecking of totaling errors and not the evaluation of the complete paper. But the re-evaluation continued due to pressure from various student representative demands and student group demands. Many students were also suffering with this re-evaluation system as the delay in re-evaluation of the answer sheets caused them failed chances to sit in supplementary and special exams.
The university officials have now made it clear that students could now only apply for re-evaluation in case of error in totaling of marks or any question that has not been evaluated. The new guidelines of the re-evaluations would be made clear by the university soon.
The students who had failed in their first year of the Four Year Undergraduate Programme (FYUP) and are not allowed to take admissions due to various other reasons would be allowed to re-admit themselves in the first year in regular programs at the University. The last date for submission of admission and examination forms for such students is set to be 29th October 2014.
