PU told to settle grace marks issue with students

LAHORE, Sep 5: Justice Sayed Asghar Haider of the Lahore High Court (LHC) has advised the Punjab University to settle the matter of awarding additional marks to the students of the MA Development Journalism.

The judge asked PU legal advisor Advocate Raja Arif if the PU did not settle the matter itself, then the court would pass a judgment, which would set a precedent in this regard.

The judge advised the PU vice chancellor not to play with the future of the students and give them marks according to the decision of the board of studies, University of the Punjab. The proceeding in the case would be on September 7. The judge gave these observations in two identical petitions filed by 29 students of the development journalism session 2004-2006. The petitioners, Khuram Shehzad and others, submitted that they appeared in development journalism papers III examination 2006, but they boycotted the paper because most of the questions were out of course.

Following this, Professor Taqi Zahid Butt, the controller examination, assured the students they would be given 30 grace marks, but the university failed to honour its commitment. They submitted the matter was referred to the board of studies (BoS), which allowed 25 additional marks to all the students. But the VC refused to accept BoS's recommendations, they said.

Earlier, the legal advisor admitted that the paper was out of course. The court asked Raja that it could not understand that the vice chancellor had himself referred the matter to the BoS, but was denying its recommendations. The judge asked that what was the qualification of the vice chancellor. At this, Sarfaraz Cheema, the petitioners' counsel, submitted that the VC was an FA. The court said what did that mean. Cheema said that the VC was a retired army officer and his qualification was FA. Daily times
