Malda, 20 February: WITHIN 24-hours of its vice-chancellor being confined to his office by the students, University of Gour Banga at Malda today announced the results of re-evaluation of Bengali answer scripts wherein the scores obtained by the examines have been increased by up to 22.
The varsity’s controller of examinations, Sanatan Das, told reporters today afternoon that in all 224 examinees of Bengali second semester had applied for re-evaluation on answer scripts and all of them have got benefited by this.
“The marks of all students have gone up. The increase is substantial, ranging from 04 to 21-22,” Das informed.
Alleging that their answer scripts were not evaluated properly and rather they were allotted a template score, the students of Bengali department at University of Gour Banga had confined vice-chancellor Gopal Chandra Mishra to his office for two days since 17 February.
The agitating students were demanding that the score of all of them should be increased by 15 marks flat. But the vice-chancellor put down his foot expressing inability to increase score at a flat rate and instead asked the students to apply for re-evaluation.
Subsequently, state education minister Partha Chatterjee asked the university authorities not to yield to any illegitimate demand and asked police to take steps free the vice-chancellor from the confinement. It was then that the students backed out and lifted the agitation yesterday.
Now, within 24-hours of this, the university authorities have announced re-evaluation results, raising many eyebrows.
