Patna, July 27: Publication of the results of the Bachelor of Education (BEd) examination conducted by Patna University (PU) might get delayed this year.
The state government is yet to clear the amendments in the ordinance and regulation for the new BEd course. Governor Devanand Konwar, who is also the chancellor of universities of Bihar, has not approved the proposal.
Recently, the human resource development department approved of a new BEd course in the state. Patna University conducted the entrance examination for the new course on May 18.
However, the university still awaits approval from the chancellor for the declaration of the results, leaving the students in a quandary. The delay would prevent them from appearing for the teachers’ recruitment test.
A BEd student, slated to appear for the teachers’ recruitment test conducted by the Delhi Subordinate, on condition of anonymity, said: “If the BEd results are not declared soon, I would be barred from taking the recruitment test. The last date for filling up of forms for the Delhi Subordinate is July 31. However, it appears that due to the university’s lackadaisical approach, results would not be declared by July 31.”
PU pro vice-chancellor S.I. Hassan said: “We have sent the proposal for amendments in the ordinance and regulation in the new course for clearance to the chancellor’s office.” He added that the university is hopeful that the results would be declared within a fortnight.
The new course entails students to clear 1000 marks papers, which includes 700 marks in theory and 300 marks in practical. Earlier, the old course included 500 marks in theory and 500 marks in practical. PU sources said the university had launched the new course without getting approval from the chancellor’s office. Moreover, it has also conducted the examination, hoping that chancellor would approve the amendments by that time.
Sources added that while on one hand, BEd results have not been declared yet, many colleges such as Patna Women’s College have issued admission forms for the new course.
