Speaking to express, GJCLA general secretary P Madhusudan Reddy said the government had been posting introduction of the jumbling system for four years under pressure from corporate colleges.
In 2008 the government introduced weightage to Intermediate marks in EAMCET following the recommendations of the P Dayaratnam Committee, but has been postponing jumbling system in practical examination. Second-year MPC candidates will have 60 marks in practicals, 30 each in Chemistry and Physics; and BIPC candidates will have 120 marks, 30 each in Chemistry, Physics,botany and zoology.
According to the Junior College Representatives, the intermediate board does not have enough faculty members to evaluate lakhs of answer papers. The vice chairman of Narayana Group of Institutions Mr. K.V.Raghunath said that “ According to the Board rules 30 answer scripts should be evaluated by each lecturer in a day. But in reality, they are given double the number of answer scripts. Some even finish their evaluation in three hours whereas they are supposed to complete it in six hours”.
Meanwhile, government college lecturers said that the state government should introduce the 25 percent weightage only after strengthening the intermediate examination system. However, the BIE officials said that the report did not reflect the actual facts and hence the correct picture about the evaluation would be released on Wednesday by the board officials. Lecturers attending the evaluation training camps said that they were given instructions that a specific answer key and model answer paper would be given to them during spot evaluation to prevent errors.
