Flexible CUCET marks: students left in tight corners

Srinagar:

If you have checked the Central Universities Common Entrance Test scorecard and became contented with your marks, this is time for you to check it again one more time as the marks may have dipped or even improved overnight.
Rising Kashmir office is pouring in with calls from many students who appeared in CUCET 2015 to confirm a berth in Central University of Kashmir but the students remained shocked after their marks changed overnight on the result website http://www.cucet2015.co.in.
When Yasmeen Jan with roll number 219139 first time checked her scorecard on 18 June, the day of uploading of scorecards on the website, she got 29 points and had some chances to get under cut-off. But when she again checked after two days, she remained shocked on seeing further decrease in her scorecard and got merely 23 points now.
Yasmeen is a brilliant student and got Grade ‘A’ in her graduation but is now in a state of shock as her dreams of joining University seem shattered. “First this university created problem when they handover us out of syllabus paper where questions from our own subject were only few and now I’m utterly shocked to see this mess.” Rising Kashmir had exclusively reported on 8 June about the students demand for reexamination after they found out of syllabus question papers. Yasmeen is not alone to suffer in this mess. Tawsi Jan with roll number 216595 got 32 points when checked on 18 June but to her utter shock, checking again after few days she is now getting only 30 and is clueless about where two marks have flown. Tawsi is one of the top scorers in her graduation having a dream to enter university. “I smell a foul in all this. Because it is not only decreasing marks but I have heard about few students whose marks even got increased…one studies with me…he had 34 and got increased to 47…” The story does not stop here. Muzamil Mushtaq with Roll number 216938 got 28 initially and now reduced to 24. Ishfaq Ahmad with Roll number 219704 got 34 initially and now 31. Putting things to further suspicion is the fact that the university has not uploaded any answer key on its site unlike other universities did after entrance. “Things would have been clear if university had uploaded answer keys after CUCET but neither have they handed over question papers to us after finishing exam nor upload keys…this must be verified by the authorities,” demands Ishfaq Ahmad, another student who appeared in the CUCET 2015.
When contacted Registrar Central University of Kashmir, Prof Mohd Afzal Zargar, said: “Firstly we don’t conduct this CUCET as the nodal agency is Central University Rajasthan. Few students had brought this complain to me and then I talked to controller examination CU Rajasthan who told me earlier it was some error which they have rectified after re-checking and now these revised marks are final marks.”
CUK Registrar further added for those who still are not convinced with the revised marks, “Those students should file a simple RTI against Rs 10 to get their OMR sheets.”
A university official wishing anonymity said: “I fail to understand why CUK doesn’t conduct its own entrance and evaluation like CU Odisha and CU Bihar pulled out from this messy CUCET…It costs CUK nearly Rs 18 lakhs to conduct this CUCET this way.”
