Presidency University has revealed results for each undergraduate and post-graduate programs, evaluating papers of the final semester by giving equal weightage to earlier performances and inside evaluation, Vice-Chancellor Anuradha Lohia said on Saturday.
Presidency grew to become the second college in West Bengal to publish results amid the CIVID-19 pandemic after Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of Technology (MAKAUT).
Results of Presidency University have been out on Friday, Lohia said including that 50 per cent of complete marks have been primarily based on steady inside assessments and the remainder on residence task and tasks and college students are completely happy.
A college official said that 90 per cent of the final year college students handed in each under-graduate and post- graduate ranges with over 70 per cent marks.
In the wake of the outbreak of coronavirus, the education division has determined to cancel the terminal semester examinations of all streams in state-run and aided universities.
On June 27, it issued an advisory suggesting that the colleges award 80 per cent weightage on the best mixture rating by a candidate in earlier semesters and 20 per cent on inside evaluation for analysis of final semester papers.
However, the division had no objection to Presidency’s resolution to go for 50:50 ratio.
Every increased instructional institute has the autonomy to determine on it’s own analysis course of relying on the scenario, an education division official said.
The steered 80:20 ratio would have affected results of the present semester of final year college students and the union was in a position to negotiate it to 50:50, Presidency University Students Council said in a press release.
“After the publication of results, it has been seen that most final year Graduation students and Post-graduation students have faired extremely well in this semester and have benefited from this negotiation,” it said.
Earlier, MAKAUT had introduced results on July 20. All private engineering schools and administration colleges are affiliated to this college.
