Bangalore Varsity to award grace marks to students


For the students who fall short of the required marks for first class or high second class, Bangalore University has decided to award 0.5% grace marks to them.

Earlier, University of Grants Commission (UGC), has framed new rules for degree classification after semester or academic year.

University, Vice-Chancellor, B Thimme Gowda has said that the students need not worry about the rules framed by the UGC. The decision was taken in a recent meeting with the varsity officials.

Gowda said, "Many students may miss the first or higher second class by a whisker. In the interest of students, we have decided to award them grace marks of up to 0.5%."

According to the new UGC rules, candidates have to get 60.01% of marks for first class. If any of the candidates secure exact 60%, they will be awarded higher second class.

Gowda also said that, if student secured 59.99%, he / she will be awarded higher second class, and this will disappoint the students. University official have decided to award 0.2% to these students to bring them first class.

"We have decided to award 0.1% to 0.5% grace marks to the students to bring the students to first class," said Gowda.

"We sent this proposal to the state government, a few months ago," said Gowda.

Earlier, the university used to give 2 marks per paper to pass the students in one paper, which can be subtracted from the another paper which has more marks.
