Srinagar, September 03: In a view to boost precision and accountability in academics and examinations of the students in KU, Vice Chancellor Khurshid Iqbal Andrabi announced a list of reforms on Wednesday.
In a meeting consisting of deans of various faculties and heads of departments, VC lay stress on the empowerment of students. He announced new examination reform in which the students will be in a position to instantly move the Chairman of the Departmental Committee for a resolution within three days if they feel that their answer scripts have not been evaluated properly.
VC also announced that at under graduate level, question papers pattern with 50 per cent descriptive and 50 per cent objective type questions will soon be resumed which will cut-short the evaluation process and consequently ensure early declaration of results.
The Vice Chancellor also talked about a proposal to start second shift in some PG programmes ensure admission to those students with a very thin margin of eligibility points in the entrance examination and did not get admission because of scarcity of seats. Apart from making the campus academically more vibrant, this will also lead to more job opportunities, Anarabi Suggested. Also, the university is thinking to establish its own undergraduate college, offering courses initially in sciences.
“The idea is to fully empower the student community and make them feel completely comfortable in the system,” Vice Chancellor Khurshid Iqbal Anarabi said after announcing the reforms.
