Pune University Results for UG and PG courses to be Announced by July
At the first-ever online senate meeting, Nitin Karmalkar, Vice-Chancellor, SPPU has announced that SPPU will declare all undergraduate and postgraduate results by July.
However, only final semester exams will not be released so early. Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) is working on calculating average marks for each student and results are likely to be out by the following month, Karmalkar stated.
University held an online senate meeting for the first time to discuss the 2020-2021 budget, which was deferred as the nationwide lockdown was called out.
There were several aspects discussed and most specifically many senate members raised concerns regarding final semester examinations.
Meanwhile, SPPU extended exam form submission dates for first and second-year students, as many complained about internet connectivity issues.
As per Karmalkar, a special committee will be assigned to look into every aspect of this matter. Several questions remained unanswered which will find solutions about time. These aspects include fate of backlog papers, exam patterns for such exams and whether final year students will be able to select such options.
Sanjay Kharat, a senate member, asserted, “Senate member Sanjay Kharat said, “If examinations are held, how will they be conducted? What will happen if the student opts for average marks instead of appearing for examinations?
There are numerous such questions going through the students’ mind and the anxiety must be put to rest by the university by issuing clear guidelines on all matters related to examinations.”
To all such questions, SPPU VC mentioned that the assigned committee will study the matters and the real picture will surface very soon. This will help find a solution easily.
As per government orders, the university is preparing to declare first and second-year results of conventional UG and PG courses by July.
Besides, it has also framed online courses for international students. The university is likely to convert primary semesters into virtual semesters.
He signed off saying, “It is important to ensure that the average marking is done without any errors. There is a lot of anxiety regarding final semester results among parents, students and teachers.
A committee, comprising senior and learned members, will be formed to study and recommend the best possible way to go about the process.”
