Srinagar, Nov 08: Kashmir University on Thursday directed all Heads of Department and Directors to upload marks of the postgraduate and undergrad courses to prevent further delay in degree completions.
The university has been receiving complaints against the inordinate delay in conducting exams and declaring results, which has marred the career prospects of its students.
Many students miss admission deadlines for other courses as well as job opportunities.
Ajra Bhat, a student. told The Kashmir Monitor, “It takes four years to complete a degree, though the prospectus mentions only two years. Besides, a step-motherly treatment is extended to the distance students while regular batches get priority.”
Taking note, the Kashmir University issued a directive to HoDs and Directors, stating: “The students, both at PG and UG levels, have immensely suffered due to delay in declaration of their result which has been taken very seriously by the university authority.”
“It is impressed upon all the HoDs/Directors that henceforth they should ensure without fail uploading of all the marks of the different components of a semester immediately and at the most within 25 days after the termination of the semester examination.”
The notice, issued by the Controller Examinations, directs the Head of Departments to “personally monitor it” and “not to delegate it exclusively to their faculty members”.
“The results of the students of CBSC is now interdependent and even if the marks of all the papers of the students are uploaded by any particular department, the result cannot be declared unless marks of the open electives by the sister department are also uploaded. This has a chain effect which unnecessarily delays the declaration of the result,” the notification reads.
