PU dept head admits granting grace marks
Lahore: Punjab University (PU) space science department chairman Prof Dr
Muhammad Ali has admitted that the department examination committee has this
year again granted possible grace marks to its Semester-IV students.
a statement issued here on Saturday, Prof Ali stated the departmental
examination committee had considered the request of students, reviewed their
results and gave them grace marks.
He said that six students on average
had obtained marks between 63 to 67 per cent. He said a political group was
demanding that below the average students should be granted additional grace
marks so that they could also pass in first division.
He said this
demand was unjustified. "If the demand of these very few below average students
is accepted, then the future of more than 100,000 students must also be
reconsidered who failed in the last BA/BSc examination because they also have
equal right to get jobs and scholarships," said Prof Ali.
protest by students on Friday, Prof Ali claimed that the protesters were neither
students of space science department nor belonged to the department in the past.
He said only a few politically motivated activists were involved in such
He also stated that as many as 17 students out of total 22
students of MSc Semester-IV had given in writing that they were unaware and
unconcerned about protest against the department administration.
Ali also stated that the department faculty members had unanimously agreed that
the demand of granting 70 per cent or above marks by adding grace marks in
previous semester was unjustified.
Still, some faculty members said that
the wrong practice of granting grace marks to the students was started by the
chairman, Prof Ali, himself, which was evident from the two transcripts
including one with revised marks.
The faculty members said the
university administration should conduct an inquiry and found that why students
were being granted additional marks without any reason.
