Jadavpur University desires Mamata Banerjee for self-sufficiency in directing last semester tests
An educators' body at Jadavpur University has encouraged West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to guarantee that the establishment is given the necessary self-rule to direct the last semester assessments.
The Jadavpur University Teachers' Association (JUTA), in an ongoing letter to Banerjee, likewise said the state government-specified date of October 31 for proclaiming results isn't practical as it falls soon after the Durga Puja merriments.
JUTA general secretary Partha Pratim Roy said that the college ought to be given the self-sufficiency to choose the dates of evaluation and affirmation of results.
The JUTA, the biggest educators' body in JU, needs a fast finish of the whole assessment measure however it ought to be chosen by the college itself, he said.
The warning gave by the University Grants Commission (UGC) to compulsorily lead last semester assessments by September 30 has put the understudies under pressure, the instructors' body said.
The ongoing follow-up activity of the state Higher Education Department, requesting that the colleges lead the last semester assessments between October 1 and 18 and proclaim results by October 31, is further troubling the understudies, it said.
"In the event that the colleges, as exhorted by the state government, fix the appraisal in October, they should take the consent of the UGC, according to the Supreme Court request on August 28.
"Given the current situation, where the UGC is by all accounts taking choices in a discretionary and informal way, this may offer ascent to another arrangement of vulnerabilities with respect to the allowing of authorization to hold assessments in October which will press the understudies," Roy said in the letter.
Calling attention to the that Durga Puja will be commended over the state from October 22, the JUTA stated, "If the evaluation cycle initiates toward the start of October and is finished by October 18, as exhorted by the Higher Education Department, numerous understudies will botch the chance to join other higher instructive organizations or take up occupations."
The JUTA reminded the central priest that the JU had at first arranged a convention for appraisal dependent on the Higher Education Department's warning gave in April, which permitted the colleges to set up their own method for evaluation.
"In any case, after a large portion of the appraisals were finished at JU, the division had given a new warning on June 27 proposing an 80-20 equation, wherein 20 percent of the score for a paper would be granted dependent on the understudy's presentation during the last semester and 80 percent would be given based on his/her outcomes in the past semester assessments," it said.
Subsequently, JU had to change the entire evaluation system and "get ready consequences of the terminal semester/last year dependent on the June 27 warning and the outcomes arranged based on the said warning have now gotten repetitive", the instructors' body said.
The JUTA said the Higher Education Department's past warning to the state colleges to lead assessments in October "appeared to have been taken in scurry without contemplating the particular issues and issues looked by changed colleges".
