Valuation system of AU,reported as Weak
The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India's performance audit of Anna University has reported and exposed the weakness in the Valuation System, hence calls for a review . This is because, during a review it was found that the substantial change was rather increase in marks of students who had applied for revaluation during the period 2005-2009 .

Students are to remit Rs.400/- as revaluation charges for each paper and Rs.700 if he/she also requires a photo copy of his/her answer script . In case of evaluation it is found to be unsatisfactory, for the students to go further for a review . More than this, after securing permission from the Head of Department and College principal, the student must pay Rs.3000/- so that the answer sheet is then valued further by the respective faculty member of the student in their college .

The reports of Revaluation sector tells that the number of students seeking for revaluation is more and presently doubled from 71,173 in April 2006 to 1.57 Lakhs in April 2009 . Among them 30,000 students had changes in their marks in 2006, and around 83,000 in 2009 . The overall percentage of such answer sheets is increased from 46.21 to 53.17 in the same period of time .

What can be the Reason behind this ? Is it the pressure on the faculty members,so as to complete a particular number of syllabus with in a specified period of time, which is leading to the poor Evaluation . Most of the students express that, they are extremely unsatisfied with the Evaluation Process . It is also found to be that number of the students who come to Banks in order to pay the Examination fee is very less when compared to those who pay fee for Revaluation .

Regarding all these evidence finally, CAG concludes saying that “The increasing trend in the percentage of Revaluation, applications, percentage and review points out the Weakness in the Valuation System" . As a result based on the CAG report, the Higher Education Secretary has strictly asked to Review the Valuation System of the University .
