Students of the Karnataka State Law University (KSLU) has discerned an absurd sequence where almost 80% students fail the examinations but dramatically score threefold in the re-evaluation. Students alleged that the University might have some malicious design to earn big bucks from the re-evaluation fees. They have decided to hold a protest on March 5.

Not only this, the students even went on to calculate the amount of extra money that the University receives just through the re-evaluation fees which is Rs 500 per subject. The irregularities in the examination pattern have left almost all the students in a taxing frenzy.


What measures are being taken?

There are over a hundred law colleges that are affiliated to the Karnataka State Law University. Many students from those colleges decided to hold a meeting and investigate into the irregularity of the evaluation pattern. The meeting was carried out to bring University’s attention to the matter and also to draw State Higher Education Department to look into it.


What do the students say?

A law student of the University said as quoted by the Bangalore mirror, “In my class, there are around 60 students, and only seven have passed in the semester. Can you imagine this kind of situation anywhere in any courses? This is not happening for the first time, or this is not the only class we are talking, everywhere in all colleges this is happening. We are pursuing BA LLB course, and every semester the failure list is huge and this is becoming a pattern for us to go and apply for re-evaluation immediately. This is outrageous.”


What do the KSLU officials say?

KSLU, Chidananda Reddy S Patil said, “There is a panel of evaluators from various colleges and teachers and teachers and principals from various colleges and teachers and principals from other colleges, and they evaluate the papers. There are evaluators from Bengaluru as well. Even in the re-evaluation there are set of teachers who evaluate. There is also a chief custodian of the evaluation process from a private college and how is this possible? If the students are saying that the university is failing them, it is their teachers who are coming and evaluating the papers. Nothing is done unilaterally in the process.”

The Logical Indian urges for a fair investigation by the concerned authority. However, if at all the University is by any means playing foul, it must be measured duly by the law. It is both cathartic and alarming to play with the career of so many students either by spawning petty tactic to squeeze out money or even if it is done out of sheer irresponsibility at the hands of the officials.
