Evaluating the answer scripts is one of the toughest tasks for the invigilators who have immense patience to go through the answers presented by the candidates and award marks accordingly. In an unusual incident, the Bangalore University declared results of the B.E. final-year Civil courses within two and a half hours of the exam getting over. Would you believe?
It is indeed a miracle. Who would have thought that this would happen that quick? Bangalore University (BU) has by far been carrying an unwanted record of delaying results but this time, they had other ideas to stun everyone by surprise by announcing VII and VIII semester exams.
The University Visvesvaraya College of Engineering (UVCE) is the only engineering university that is affiliated to Bangalore University. Professor C Shivaraju, evaluation official of BU told TOI that they were able to pull off a spectacular feat as they made sure that the answer scripts of every subject were corrected on the same day itself.
“By doing so, we were able to finish evaluating all subjects for which exams were held in the past 10 days. On Monday, we were only left with the task of checking answer scripts of the day. As many as 139 students took the exams. For the first time in BU’s history, results have been announced in such a short time. Otherwise, they are announced after a gap of eight to 15 days,” he added.
Suresh P, an engineering student, said they were really pleased about the enhancement in the evaluation exercise. “Quick results go a long way in giving students more time to explore options for higher studies or look for a job. On Monday, we finished writing the last paper at 2pm and by 4.30pm we had the results,” he added. Professor Shivaraju said they will stick to the same evaluation pattern for other UG courses as well.
