ITANAGAR, Oct 24: A team of the All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU), led by its Vice-President (Pro), Dr Tayuk Sonam and Education Secretary, Prem Camdir Tallong on Tuesday called on RGU Vice-Chancellor, Professor Tamo Mibang at his official chamber and raised the vexed issue of No More Chance (NMC) given to the students pursuing their UG courses in various courses affiliated under the RGU.
Earlier, as per the RGU ordinance OE-7 (UG under Semester System) para 20.6 (i) and OE-8 para 35 (PG under Semester system), students were restricted to three chances to clear their back papers.
After RGU held its Academic Council (AC) meeting on April 27 this year, the AAPSU had apprised the VC regarding this matter, to which a verbal assurance was given that in the next coming AC meeting that it would be resolved.
Accordingly, a three-member committee was constituted to examine the maximum of three chances to clear the particular semester. The committee had unanimously resolved the abolition of the existing practice of allowing three more chances to UG candidates. It was also decided to allow the candidates at UG level to clear their back papers within six years. The Academic council meeting, which was held on October 12, had reportedly accepted the proposals of the three-member committee allowing the UG level students to clear course within six years, informed the AAPSU.
The Union has welcomed the decision taken by the RGU authorities and expressed its gratitude on behalf of the students community. “The decision taken is in the right earnest and shall definitely serve as a boon to thousands of students who were languishing without any hopes until now”, stated the AAPSU.
Further, the Union said that, henceforth, no more requests, appeals, prayers and petitions regarding exam related matter will be entertained by them.
