I saw a couple of photocopies of answer scripts of people who had got arrears this semester. To know a bit about AU’s revaluation/photocopy schemes, click here Revaluation
Funny thing is, you have to pay 300 Rupees extra for photocopying at most 42 sides of your answer scripts. The same would cost less than 20 Rupees in any other “xerox” shop. (Also, note that the exam fee for one subject is 100 rupees.) Fancy photocopiers, these AU people should have considering it’s not even colour xerox. (Comments explaining why they charge us 300 rupees, will be deleted 😀 )
One of the answer papers read something like this:
01 0;02 0;03 0;04 0;05 0;06 0;07 o;08 0;09 0;10 0
01 02;02 03;03 05;04 02;05 00
Wow, what a wonderful way to evaluate a paper. And I can personally vouch that atleast four 2 mark answers were perfectly right and some of the 16 marks questions deserved atleast 10 marks. Why AU examiners go crazy sometimes is inexplicable. And it’s not an isolated case either. One or two of my other friends also said that they were hard done by the results.
Lawyers reading this post may respond. 🙂 We want to sue AU.
P.S: I wish I could put up the scanned copy of the paper I described here, but I don’t have a scanner. So, buy me a scanner. 🙂
Just in case you are also interested, the exam dates have been announced. I am putting it up here so that you save yourself a visit to the AU site. (They have changed the look by the way. Can’t say it looks any better though.)
