Plans are underway to ensure the success of more than 1.5 million students at Pt. Ravishankar Shukla University is located in Raipur. In connection with this, a Congress leader has submitted a memorandum to Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel. This memorandum highlights the requirement for undergraduate-level students to take supplementary exams in not just one, but two subjects. In the recent offline examination, 80% of students failed.
The Indian National Student Organization has taken a stand due to the failure of thousands of students in two subjects at Pt-Ravishankar University, resulting in their complete failure in the annual examination. In response, NSUI has submitted a memorandum to Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel and the Chancellor of Pt. Ravishankar University. According to this memorandum, the rule that previously allowed students to take a supplementary exam if they failed in one subject should be extended to cover two subjects. NSUI’s argument is based on the premise that the education standards of children have declined during the two years of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has resulted in a situation where numerous students couldn’t pass two subjects. Thus, Pt. Ravishankar University’s rule of allowing supplementary exams for one subject should be adapted to include two subjects.
In line with the students’ demand, influenced by Congress leader Vinod Tiwari, Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel has been handed a memorandum. Students, under Tiwari’s leadership, have brought the issue of this year’s poor university results to the attention of the Chief Minister. In response, the Chief Minister has assured that action will be taken. As per the available information, orders related to these changes could be issued this week.
Pt. Ravishankar Shukla University and other university students have also received poor results this time. Out of the overall results, 80% of students failed, while only 20% passed. Across all universities in the state, 40% of students failed, and these students failed in two subjects. If the rules are revised, these students will have the opportunity to retake the exam. However, this provision will be applicable only for the current academic session. The old rule will continue to apply from the next academic year.
