Pune: Most of the students of Automobile Government Engineering College, Avasari have become the victims of alleged mismanagement of exam department of University of Pune. 
Angry students, on Thursday, gathered in front of examination centre to stage their protest against the non-ending goof-ups by the examination departmentIt is worth mentioning that due to the alleged lethargy of exam department, majority of the students who had appeared for the November 2013 exams, were shown absent for some subjects in their final results.Bhushan Kushare, a third year student, for instance, was shown absent for the paper he had appeared. 
“I appeared for one of the subjects called ‘Heat Transfer’ however, when I got the result on March 20, I was shocked seeing the absent mark for the same subject despite appearing for the exam. This is the sheer lethargy from the part of exam department,” said Kushare. He even did not receive the admit card and so he could not appear for practical examination of Computer Oriented numerical method. But in his result he scored 22 marks out of 50. He was unable to understand how that had happened.Similar is the case with Rohit Gundecha, who too was shown absent for the same subject.
One of the students said that there are over 80 students who had appeared for November 2013 examination and only nine students have been able to clear all the subjects however looking at the goof-ups, there are chances that their papers are not checked properly. “We met vice chancellor, Dr Wasudev Gade, and requested him to re-check our papers and rectify the mistakes done by the evaluators,” said one of the students.
VC’s takeWhile speaking to dna, varsity vice chancellor Dr Gade said that he had given a patient hearing to all of the students. “I will speak to the examination department and the dean of the engineering section Dr Gajanan Kharate and will soon take some call on the issue,” he said.
