Bangalore University to withdraw Grading System


According to the sources, students are not interested in scoring the marks in internal assessment. And also students failed to compete with the students of other universities.

Because of this grading system, students failed to score good marks and get the jobs.

"Most of the universities give marks for internal assessment which will be included with the theory marks. But we give grades and that does not help the students in anyway," said BU Vice-Chancellor Prof B Thimme Gowda.

Academic council members agreed with the action taken by the VC Thimme Gowda.

Thimme Gowda said: "It is better if the government fixes common parameters for internal assessment. We will submit a proposal regarding this to the Karnataka State Higher Education Council. Let them put it before all the V-Cs and take a decision."

Earlier, Bangalore University used to allot marks in internal assessment. Now they are following the grading system for internal assessment.

It was reported that, male lecturers allegedly tried to exploit female students just because they could allot 10 marks in internal assessment.

"That was the main reason to withdraw internal assessment marks and introduce grading system in March 2010," said an official of the university.
