It has been three months since but there is no word on the results. The delay has put on hold their plans for jobs and higher studies. “Our exam was conducted in July. As per department officials, they submitted the result to the authorities in the varsity soon after the exam. We need to apply for higher studies and jobs. Only if we get our results soon will it help us. We hope we are spared the anxiety and the uncertainty about our future,” said a student of the mathematics department in GU.
Another student from the department of chemistry said that they were hopeful of getting results on time as the online exam was held much before the exams held by other departments. “There are students who have bagged jobs and need to produce documents. But nothing is moving forward. We are sitting idle at home without any job. The university must understand the urgency of the situation and act fast,” said the student.
Students said that they have made a representation to the varsity authorities but have not received any response. Heads at GU’s School of Science decided to conduct online exams because the number of students pursuing master’s degree are fewer compared to other schools. Majority of the PG departments at GU completed online exams in the first half of August.
Kalpen Vora, examination controller at GU, said the delay is because internal marks have to be uploaded.
“We will declare the MSc result by a week’s time,” he said.
