Delhi University To Drop Re-Evaluation From 2013

No More Re-evaluation In Delhi Universit
Delhi University (DU) is planning to stop the re-evaluation system from the upcoming session in 2013.As per the Supreme Court judgment of August 2011, it is the prerogative of the examining body whether to extend the facility of re-evaluation or not. Despite the judgment, we have been carrying out the process of re-evaluation for the benefit of students, said an official of the examination department of Delhi University.

However, after stopping the re-evaluation system, the University will still continue with 'rechecking' of the answer scripts. According to inside sources, while in re-evaluation the answer script of a student is re-evaluated all over again by the examiner, 're-checking' would imply that the examiner only re-totals the marks in the answer sheet.

Based on the condition of anonymity a DU official explains as “To start with, we will get every answer script corrected by at least two examiners for an error-free results”. Hence, if the university stops the re-evaluation system, it is likely to create other alternatives for the benefit of students.

However, a faculty of maths at Kirori Mal College Mr.S.K.Kaushik says, “The re-evaluation system is unique and should be continued. Being a part of the examination checking team, I know that teachers who check papers can make a mistake. If the re-evaluation system is stopped, students will suffer and there can be no equal alternative”. A student of DU in Buddhist study named Jitender Chaudhry, says “The re-evaluation system is important for students. Without it, how do we redress our issues”.

Considering the fact that around 45 lakh re-evaluation applications are received every year, Ajay Chikara, the president of Delhi University Students Union (DUSU), feels that stopping of the system will be disadvantageous for the students.
