Pune: Third year engineering students of the affiliated colleges of University of Pune, who failed to clear their examinations, have demanded a carry-on admission to fourth year. there were more than 200 students who stormed into the office of Vice Chancellor Dr Wasudev Gade on Monday afternoon.
While demanding the carry-on to the next year, the students said that they failed due to the mistakes in paper assessment process.
One of the students from city engineering college said the results were declared hastily and thus the assessment was not done properly and some papers were given fail marks despite the paper being checked properly as it has been revealed through the photocopy of papers.

A delegation of five students led by Shivraj More and Mohit Shinde had gone forth to meet the VC and submitted their application.
While talking to dna, Dr Gade said that the demand can not be granted as there is no such rule however, if the students feel that they might get passing marks, they can apply for the revaluation process.
"As per the students demands that there should be some discussion on this issue, we will raise the issue in ensuing senate meeting," he said.
