Hyderabad: Students who appeared for the exams have been marked “absent” in the recently released results of undergraduate courses in about 477 colleges affiliated to Osmania University.
After students protested the “discrepancies”, the university was compelled to release an updated result.
Mr Kamal Suresh, PhD scholar and ABVP acti-vist, was one of the protesters, said, “Several students were confused after seeing the ‘absent’ remark in their mark-sheet when they have actually written the examination. We took the issue to the notice of the controller of examinations and registrar through protest and gave a representation. It has since been resolved.”
OU officials clarified that the results of about 1,600 students from four to five colleges were withheld as there was a confusion among the electives that they had registered. Those students have selected ‘environmental studies’ instead of ‘environmental science’ and ‘computer fundamentals’ instead of ‘basic computer skills’ during their registration.
The examination branch thought of verifying the titles and then released it. Meanwhile, given the insistence by students, the university released the updated result late Saturday on night....
