A report on the result analysis of the law faculty of the University of Pune (UoP) was submitted to the vice-chancellor (V-C) on Thursday, varsity officials said. This comes in the wake of widespread protests by law students alleging discrepancies in their results, which also led to the suicide of a student.
“The report reflects the overall analysis of the law faculty results,” said an official who did not wish to be named.
“The case of the student who committed suicide was taken as a special case but apparently there is no change in his marks,” said another official from the university.
“The report has been submitted to my office. I need to study it,” said UoP Vice-Chancellor W N Gade.
“The marksheets of law students have been delivered to the colleges. These will be given out tomorrow,” said Jaya Sagade, Vice Principal, ILS Law College. Saumitra Dhoble had committed suicide on Saturday after he failed in his first-year university exams.
After this, the students of the college along with students of other law colleges had complained of discrepancies in marks. Sampada Joshi, Controller of Examination, UoP, had said a a report would be submitted on the matter.
Vaijayanti Joshi, Principal, ILS Law College, also asked some students to find out if there is a pattern in the results obtained.
This report is likely to be compiled by Monday.
“My nephew lives in Pune. He will be collecting Saumitra’s the result from the college. There is no point applying for revaluation now. Something is wrong in the checking pattern, otherwise how can so many students fail? Many students got the same marks. This should be investigated but for me there is no point getting revaluation done because I have lost my son. What is the point of pursuing this case when I have already lost it?” said Gulabrao Dhoble, father of Saumitra Dhoble.
