THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Not satisfied with the marks awarded to you in the engineering examination? Don’t jump into the routine ‘scrutiny, revaluation’ bandwagon. You can consider that option after taking a look at your evaluated answer sheet. In the first such initiative by any university in the state, APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University (KTU) has introduced the provision of sending evaluated answer scripts to the students. KTU is the affiliating university for engineering institutions in the state. The move, aimed at ensuring transparency, has been a long-standing demand of the student community.
How it Works
After the results are announced, the university will give the option for the students to apply online for getting a copy of their answer scripts. The student has to apply online with the login provided to him. The answer scripts will be scanned and uploaded to the portal. This will then reach student’s institute login. Simultaneously, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the student and the principal of the institution.
At present, universities in the state provide a scrutiny facility through which the student has to visit the university concerned to peruse their answer scripts. The student can only view the answer scripts but cannot get the copies. With the new facility introduced by KTU, the students can access scanned copies of their answer scripts from any location.
A New Beginning
“Initially, KTU will charge a fee for this facility as the papers are kept at different centres across the state and manpower is required to facilitate the copying of the answer scripts. Once the valuation system is automated, the facility will be available to the students free of cost,” says M Abdul Rahman , Pro Vice Chancellor, KTU. The candidates of the first and second semester BTech special examinations conducted during August/September 2016 can avail of this facility. Students can register for the facility at the KTU portal from October 31 to November 4. – Courtesy
