KU finalising undergrad results but colleges faltering on practical awards

Varsity issues warning

SRINAGAR: Even as the results of various undergrad semester-end examinations at the University of Kashmir (KU) are in final stage, several colleges in Kashmir have failed to submit practical awards of the candidates to the Kashmir University, thereby hijacking the results virtually.
A notification issued by Controller Examinations KU on Saturday said that the 1st, 2nd and 3rd semester results of 2016, 2017 and 2018 batches were in “final stage” and would be declared soon.
The notification, however, added that the internal assessment/practical marks of the students had not been submitted by some of the college principals “in spite of repeated requests”.
The Controller Examinations has asked the concerned college principals to get the feedback of respective HODs over the status of internal awards and ensure timely submission.
The notification has warned that no practical award will be entertained after the declaration of the result.
“It shall be the responsibility of the teacher concerned to check the results and ensure that the marks of the students allotted to him/her are uploaded or the hard copy is submitted in the office of the undersigned. No excuse for the non-submission of the marks will be accepted after the declaration of the results,” it reads.
In a separate notification, the Controller Examinations at KU has told the college principals that as per the university statutes, the undergrad students should pass the theory and practical part of a particular paper in the same session.
The notification reads that some of the college principals submit the award rolls of the students either after the declaration of the results or forward the practical and theory awards of the students in different session “which amount to violation of statutes and will not be accepted henceforth.”
In December also, the KU had warned defaulting colleges of “administrative action” by the Higher Education Department, for failing to submit the practical awards of the candidates.
In May this year, the KU issued a notification stating that undergraduate students at the colleges affiliated with it will not be eligible for their term-end examinations unless they clear their internal assessment tests and practicals.
