Bangalore University task force reports on admissions in M.Ed Colleges

BU Task Force report on M.Ed admissions
Bangalore University task force submitted its final report on M.Ed colleges on Thursday. The task force observed that except Vijaya Teachers College (Post Graduation Studies), none of the other M.Ed. Colleges have earmarked dedicated classrooms or library or laboratories for M.Ed. Program. Most of the colleges have not maintained admission register properly.

The Task Force has recommended the varsity not to approve admissions made by private colleges that do not have the university affiliation.


With regard to colleges functioning in violation of the university norms for the academic year 2012-13, the Task Force has asked the university to penalise them with a fine of Rs. 25,000/- per student admitted under the management quota.

Some other observation by the task force includes - Colleges have also allowed students to write the examination without them attending required classes. Internal assessment (IA) marks are being awarded without evaluating IA papers and in some cases even without conducting tests also. Moreover, none of the colleges have appointed the required number of eligible and regular staff and qualified head of the department for M.Ed. program as per NCTE norms.

Recently, National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) had withdrawn the recognition of M.Ed programmes in Vijaya Teachers College and 7 M.Ed colleges affiliated to Bangalore University (BU) on April 01, 2013.

After inspecting all the teacher education colleges under the university's umbrella, the Task Force has come up with a set of recommendations to monitor the quality of education imparted by them.

Irregular maintenance of the admission register, students being allowed to appear for examinations without attending the required number of classes (85 per cent) and marks being awarded for internal assessment without evaluation were the most common problems found.
