“It is now an accepted practice that immediately after the announcement of results, special examinations are conducted for students who fail in standard X and Plus-Two examinations. Similarly, Anna University too will enable students to write such examinations,” Mr. Radhakrishnan said.This was in pursuance of the various other facilities that the students were being provided, like digital evaluation of answer sheets, timely availability of hall tickets, copies of examination papers and mark sheets, etc.
“Some colleges had expressed their displeasure over the digital evaluation scheme. These issues will be addressed and remedial action will be taken. The examination results were delayed because certain colleges did not depute sufficient staff for evaluating the papers,” Mr. Radhakrishnan said.There were already 40,000 students studying in the 118 colleges of the university. Another 40-odd colleges would be added to the existing number in the coming academic year.
