Anna University – Photocopy-cum-Revaluation

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

16 marks

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.)

  1. @Aravindhan,

    Sad state of affairs. Earning money from other peoples depression, is not the best way to earn money. As for your 800, did it atleat yield favourable results ?

  2. @Marc,

    I have to come all the way to Bessie. I could probably give it to you in college. But then I’ll have to get the original from the concerned party first.

  3. I prefer using the new Ricoh Color product line over the Xerox Color line.

    Ricoh has stronger and better systems, speaking from experience.

    I wouldnt doubt it, if this post gets removed, since Xerox doesnt want people to know the truth.

    Thank goodness, for Ricoh and The Copier Group.
    I bought a system through

    Xerox used to be fine for me, but the Guys at The Copier Group were so helpful, they let me know that Ricoh was a better way to go…

    Thanks Ricoh.

  11. Well I have my fair share of sad experiences with AU. Im in 3rd yr now, got really good gpa in I and II sem (>9.5) and suddenly grades fell below 8.5!!! I had no idea what happened… I was totally confident of getting good results. I decided to get the photocopy of the paper in IV sem and to my surprise all 16 marks were awarded only 9 marks!!!! THIS IS SO SO STUPID! Ive never ever got below 90 in the internals and model tests in college! For a guy who loves computer science so so much this is just ridiculous!

    THEY LOOK AT YOUR HANDWRITING AND see put marks randomly. Sadly people get arrears. and thats so so sad. We need reform.
    THEY MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE! THE “BEGGARS” who evaluate the papers must be held accountable. They are not LECTURERS!!!!! I dont care if they are the ones who teach me! I DONT REALLY CARE!!!! THEY ARE ALL IDIOTS!!!!! COMPLETE IDIOTSSSS!

    Is there any way we can change this??????????????

    THESE IDIOT BODY SHOPS like INFOSYS AND WIPRO MUST BE CLOSED DOWN FOR AU TO CHANGE! AU is nothing compared to IITs and other unis in tn.
