Srinagar: University of Kashmir (KU) has issued a clarification notice regarding UG 1st Semester (CBCS) results.
The notification issued by the University reads, “This is to bring to the notice of students enrolled at various Degree Colleges whose result of 1st Semester (CBCS) was declared on 19-01-2018 that the result of some of the candidates was declared as “LO” / “NA” or even “Re-Appear” due to the following reasons:
01. Such of the candidates have not darkened the respective circles on the OMR sheets rather have put a dot or have encircled the respective answer or have ticked the respective answer which couldn’t be read by the machine and, therefore, the marks of the objective paper could not be determined and were not added with his / her theory marks.
Such OMR sheets are being identified and shall be assessed again by the OMR machine after correcting the mistakes committed by the students;
02. Other category of students whose result have been shown “Re-Appear” or “LO” have not darkened up the respective circles on the OMR sheet in the space where Roll No. has to be written.
They have, instead, written their Roll No’s in figures rather than darkening of circles, which could not be read by OMR machine;
03. Another category of students have not mentioned the series of Question Papers on the OMR sheet, therefore, respective answer key could not be applied to assess the marks obtained by the students;
04. Furthermore, the result of the some of the candidates has been declared as “LO” / “Re-Appear” whose practical awards were not submitted till date.
It is worthwhile to mention that the number of such candidates is more than seven thousand.
In order to resolve all these issues, it will take at-least 15 days to correct and assess their OMR sheets and declare their results.”
The nature of mistakes committed by the students on the OMR sheets can be seen on the sample copies of OMR’s available on the official website of University of Kashmir.
