Mangalore, 21 October 2010: Students of under-graduate courses offered by two autonomous colleges under Mangalore University who completed the same during the last academic year (2009-10) may not receive their degrees at the annual convocation of the university scheduled for December or early January. The same fate befell students of post-graduate courses offered by these colleges when they passed out at the end of academic year 2008-09.




The two autonomous colleges in question are city-based St Aloysius and St Agnes Colleges respectively. Reason for this development is that the colleges have not yet submitted marks ledger for examinations held by them under 70:30 examination pattern adopted by them. This is against the university’s examination scheme which mandates examination be held on 80:20 pattern, where 80 is for theory and rest internal assessment.


Sending out this warning to the two colleges in no uncertain terms at the academic council meeting of the university here on Wednesday was vice-chancellor T C Shivashankara Murthy. The two colleges have time till October 30 to submit the marks ledger to the university. "We have sent them a letter (seeking marks ledger) to which there has been no reply. We have also sent them a reminder (and are waiting their reply)," he said.


If the colleges fail to submit the marks ledger by October 30, the university will not be in a position to award them degrees even at this year’s convocation. The eligibility list of students who can then be awarded degrees will have to be prepared and awarded degrees, he said. The university will also have to convert the marks awarded by the colleges in 70:30 format to 80:20 format before finalising the list of eligible students, he noted.


Later, interacting with reporters, the V-C said the university may consider giving the two colleges an additional 15-days time to submit the marks ledger if they want some more time to do so. "We do not want the students of the 2007-08 batch, the first batch where the autonomous colleges started admissions, to suffer for the mistake committed by their colleges in not adhering to the scheme of examination of the university," he said.
