Maharashtra University of Health Sciences students seek old evaluation system
Around 50 students from colleges affiliated to the Maharashtra University of Health Sciences ( MUHS ), along with activists, on Monday presented a second memorandum pro-vice-chancellor, demanding that the administration should revert to the old system of evaluation.
The students staged a demonstration in front of the university and presented a memorandum to pro-VC Shekhar Rajderkar as the VC was out of town.
Earlier, on September 19, around 100 students had met the vice-chancellor, requesting him to repeal the present system of evaluation involving double checking of papers.
According to the new system of evaluation, answer sheets are checked by two sets of moderators and the mean of marks given by the two moderators is considered as the final score. Students demanded that the old system, where students were able to apply for revaluation, should be revived and photo copies of answer sheets should also be provided.
“Even if the old system is not brought back, at least the highest marks should be considered in the new system rather than the mean marks given by both moderators,” one of the students said.
The students said that they were ready to pay the mandatory 500 per answer sheet for revaluation.
Rajderkar said, “The issue is now sub-judice, so I cannot comment on it. Some students have approached the high court. Whatever decision the court gives, we will abide by it. I will talk to the VC when he returns.”
