KU Result fiasco: Varsity still grappling to clear mess

Srinagar: The University of Kashmir is yet to issue the corrected first semester results of some 7000 under graduate students affected by the recent result faux pas.
According to officials the varsity is still struggling to trace the roll numbers and question paper series of a number of students who they said have not filled the information in OMR sheets.
Controller Examinations Dr. Mohammad Yousuf Bhat told Kashmir Reader that they working on the issue.
“We have compiled the result of almost 60 percent students, but there is still a lot that is pending. 1400 candidate has not written their roll number and series no in the OMR sheet,” Bhat said.
He said that they have published a notice asking the candidates to go to IT labs of their colleges to find out their roll no and series.
“Once they submit series and roll no we will declare result,” Bhat said.
Earlier Bhat had told Kashmir Reader that candidates have not darkened the respective circles on the OMR in the roll number section.
“They have rather put a dot or written roll numbers instead which couldn’t be read by the OMR machine which has created the issue.”
The affected students, however, allege that they are victimized for the wrong policy of the varsity.
“How come so many students will miss important details on the papers,” a student questioned.
Faiqa Jan, a student of Women’s College Nawa Kadal said the officials were making excuses.
“Is it possible that we don’t write our roll no or series in the OMR sheet,” she said. “There are rumors that papers have misplaced, and that is why the result is being delayed. Earlier they said that the OMR has not been darkened and it will only take 15 days to come with result.”
Shahid Bhat, another student added, “We are not able to understand what Kashmir University did. They issued two notifications regarding revised result but when we check the result they either show us Not Eligible (NA), or Later On (L0). They spoiled our future. Now we don’t have any option but to come again on roads.” Another student Irfan Ahmad said they are disturbed by the mess.
“We simply want justice. They should simply tell us whether we are fail, or we are eligible, due to this mess we are not able to focus on our studies.”
Last month the Kashmir University declared the first semester results of 2016 batch a year after the examinations were held. Some 7000 students were declared failed due to discrepancies in the OMR sheets.
