Many B.Ed students whose results were declared last week were shocked to see themselves not qualified because their marks from internal practical exams held by their respective colleges were either not included by Kashmir University authorities or were marked absent. 

A student of 2015 batch said she has scored 8.9 aggregate points out of 10 in 3rd and 4th semesters but has been asked to Reappear (R) in one of the 4th semester subjects because her marks from internal practicals in that subject were not awarded.

"I was shocked to see the result, I couldn't believe my eyes that the KU authorities can commit such a blunder," she said.

The flawed results have exposed the laxity of the KU once again as well as authorities of respective colleges.

"Such mistakes can cost life of a student. KU authorities should have ensured that students are awarded the marks we have obtained in theory or piratical exams," said the distraught student, who wished not to be identified. 

But she is not the only one served a difficult deal by the KU authorities.

Around 12000 students, enrolled with private B.Ed colleges in 2015 appeared in the exams, the result for which was declared by KU on Friday. 

Dozens of these students have been mistakenly declared as not qualified.

"I have appeared in all theory and practical exams but I have been declared as 'not qualified' because KU officials have marked me absent in one subject," complained another student.

Many students have been shown in the results as 'Not Available (NA)' and 'later on (LO)'.

"Such grave mistakes have exposed the college as well as the KU officials. They are playing with the career of students," said Adil, a student from Baramulla who gave only one name.

In September, the KU authorities had mistakenly declared more than 500 undergraduate students from various colleges as not qualified.

Amid the crises, the University authorities and B.Ed college principals kept passing the responsibility to each other. 

Controller examination at KU, Prof. Farooq Ahmad said the result was declared after taking private B.Ed college association into confidence. 

"Nobody raised this issue because they have not assigned the marks," Ahmad claimed, adding the internal marks are awarded by the respective colleges.

However, the B.Ed college authorities alleged KU had become habitual of committing mistakes in preparing exam results of the students and later put the blame on the private B.Ed colleges.

"KU has mistakenly shown some students absent in some subjects and declared them as not qualified. But this is not our fault," said Javed Ahmad Chesti, Principal JET B.Ed College Baramulla.

He however admitted that B.Ed Colleges can be held responsible if students have not been awarded internal marks in any subject. 

"That can be our mistake but we will resolve that," Chesti said.
