The students of various colleges who recently hit the streets in protest against Kashmir University's alleged "negligence" on Wednesday refuted the varsity's claims that optical mark recognition (OMRs) were wrongly filed by the students during examination.
The KU authorities had blamed students for wrongly filling the OMRs. However, the students termed the reason cited by the KU authorities "unjustified and illogical". "Those students who have marked the OMR sheet in wrong way have ironically passed and those who have done it in the right way are failing," they said.
The OMR sheets that were uploaded by KU to site example of erring students have passed in recently declared results. The copies of those OMRs are with Greater Kashmir.
"This is the copy of my OMR sheet where I have marked everything correctly, but still I am not qualifying," said a student from Nawa Kadal college where none of the students have qualified in one of the subjects.
Another student while holding the copy of the OMR sheet, which was wrongly filled, said "this student who has no even filled the roll number is qualifying. "This is injustice with us," he said.
An official of Kashmir University said that "there must be some technical issues and students need not to panic as the issue will be solved soon."
"There must be some technicalities which will be solved after examining the issue properly," he told Greater Kashmir. "Students need not panic as we are here to serve them and their all queries will be listened to and solve."
He further clarified that those students who have passed despite having some issue in OMR are passing due to theory portion.
It may be recalled on 22 January, hundreds of students hit streets at Moulana Azad Road and at Kashmir University against University authorities for declaring majority of students unsuccessful in more than one subject.
As per the students, none of the students have qualified in subjects like "business organization and management" and "Urdu" in different valley colleges while 90 per cent students are failing in other subjects as per the result.
They also said that several other students despite appearing in the exams have been marked absent in one or two subjects in the recently declared results.
