Re-check row in university

Several students of the BCA course allegedly heckled the vice-chancellor and the registrar of Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar Bihar University on Tuesday owing to delay in announcing a re-evaluation of answer scripts.

The university had declared the results of the bachelor of computer applications (BCA) exam recently in which a majority of students failed in subsidiary subjects.

The students demanded a re-evaluation of their answer books and blamed the examiners for checking copies haphazardly.

The university authorities faced a tough time controlling the students, said development officer Kalyan Kumar Jha. Members of the examination board are scheduled to meet on Wednesday to decide on the matter.

Apart from heckling vice-chancellor Ravi Verma and registrar Vivekanand Shukla, the agitating students stopped other officials from entering the Central Library Hall, where a discussion on the varsity’s annual budget was scheduled.

The students threatened to disrupt functioning of the administrative offices to vent anguish over delay in announcing a re-evaluation of the copies.

Sources said the examination board is not empowered to re-evaluate copies. The development officer said: “We would request the governor to direct the university for re-evaluation.”

Amit Kumar, a BCA student at Ramdayalu Singh College, said: “I got zero in a subsidiary paper of history although it was a subjective paper.”
