Calicut University Special Supplementary exams bring about relief for failed students:

News Analysis by CNM Reporter

The latest decision of the Calicut University to conduct special supplementary  examinations for those  students who had failed to pass or score enough marks in their  examinations held over the last two decades, has brought about much relief and happiness to a large number of students whose future and career prospects have been seriously jeopardized as they could not successfully complete the course for various reasons including change of syllabus

A good number of students from the backward areas in the northern and central districts of Kerala including Wayanad and Kasargod, who have failed in a single paper for want of a single mark or so, have been knocking the doors of University and Higher Education Department, for granting them a chance to write the failed papers once more.
The decision on the conduct of providing a final chance to the failed students was taken at the Adalath organized by the Calicut University early in last March to resolve the problems faced by the students.
Of late, the Senate of the University has also accorded its nod for the conduct of special examinations.
The decision of the University will benefit a large number of students especially of  professional courses and PG courses, to clear their arrear papers. The examinations will be conducted in old scheme and syllabus from 2020 March onwards, according to sources in the University.
 Vice Chancellor Dr K Mohammed Basheer, who is due to demit his office on November 20 told that urgent steps will be taken to expedite the conduct of special exams and early publication of results. The proactive approach of the outgoing Vice Chancellor to resolve the grievances of the students on various issues has drawn acclodes from all quarters.  Higher Education Minister Dr KT Jaleel himself has placed on record his deep appreciation for the contributions made by Dr Basheer for the advancement of the University in all spheres at a farewell meet for the VC organized by the Senate. In fact, a silent revolution in all arenas of University’s functioning and activities was taking place during the term of Dr Basheer, said the Minister.
The University had also conducted special supplementary and improvement examinations earlier in 2012 to those students who had either failed or registered for degree and postgraduate courses from 1990 onwards, when Dr M Abdul Salam was the Vice Chancellor of the University.
This has enabled a good number of students, who had either failed or not secured enough marks, in their UG and PG examinations held over the previous two decades, to pass or improve their marks
The decision then helped many students who had failed to get the 55% mark which is the minimum eligibility for various national and state-level eligibility examinations, including the National Eligibility Test (NET) mandatory for teacher appointments in colleges.
The decision of Dr M Abdul Salam  was hailed by all as a humanitarian gesture from the part of the university to the unlucky students who had narrowly missed their career dreams due to shortage of marks.
The varsity also decided then to hold an improvement examination to BEd graduates who are unable to appear for Kerala Teacher Eligibility Test for failing to secure 45% marks in their degree examination.
Dr Abdul Salam had also formed a Special Supplementary Examinations Unit to accelerate the conduct of special examinations and to publish their results at the earliest. A group of efficient officers under the leadership of 
T Mohanan was put in charge of the Special Supplementary Examinations Unit and results of various examinations could be published in a record time then. Dr. Salam also took steps to conduct special examinations four times in a year.
The steps the University had taken for the conduit of special exams during the regime of Dr Salam were highly helpful to the students, apart from bringing in rich revenue to the cash stripped University coffers.
The Senate, at its last meeting held on Saturday in which final decision on conduct of special examinations was taken, also approved the direction of Kerala State Higher Education Council to the University, to recognize the degrees awarded by the Central and other state Universities and also the degrees awarded by other higher educational institutions recognized by the Association of Indian Universities (AIU) on a par with the degrees awarded by the University. This step has also put an end to the ordeals suffered by the students who have passed degrees from other Universities in obtaining equivalency certificates from Calicut University  for their higher studies and employment.
