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.

In 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.

Responding to 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 activities.

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.

Prof 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.
