Following protests by third-year undergraduate students of various colleges affiliated to Gauhati University demanding a complete re-evaluation of their fifth semester results, which they alleged were full of discrepancies, the university on Wednesday agreed to allow re-evaluation, for free, but insisted that there were no issues from its side.

The third-year undergraduate students protested within the university premises on Tuesday and alleged that Assam Police personnel entered university premises to remove protesters from the site and manhandled several students. The police, the students claimed, also temporarily detained some students in a bus, including a few Post-Graduate Student Union (PGSU) members. A few students suffered minor injuries while clashing with the police and had to be admitted to hospitals, the students further alleged.

Following the protests, the university on Wednesday published a notice agreeing to allow free re-evaluation of exam results for all third-year students. The re-evaluation usually costs a student Rs 560 per paper, with a maximum of three papers allowed for re-evaluation.

“The examinations for fifth semester undergraduate students were held around February to March and the results were declared only on July 29, that too at 2 or 3 am. Several students were marked ‘absent’ despite appearing for the exams. In many colleges, students got ‘Backs’ (Fail) in the same subject on a mass scale, and there are many cases where individual students got up to three or four ‘Backs’ in different subjects,” PGSU President Hemen Kalita said.
