"My LLB end semester exam result has come and I am not satisfied." "I failed to get passing marks." "I answered all the questions well but still my marks are so low, what did I do wrong?" "How do I pass LLB exams?"
Does this sound familiar? Believe me, you are not alone. I get these questions every now and then. Here is what you should do:
1. If your University has a procedure to obtain a copy of your answer sheet, follow that procedure and get a copy.
2. If your University doesn't give you a copy, you can file a simple RTI application and enclose the decision of MP SIC directing the University to give a copy to the student. Here is a sample application along with the MP SIC decision.
3. Scan and send your answer sheet to us to learn whether your answer sheet was evaluated fairly. We will pay you Rs. 1000/- if you publish your answer sheets here.
In this article I wrote about my case against DAVV to get a photocopy of my answer sheets. As it turns out, during the time it took to get a decision from State Information Commission, DAVV destroyed my answer sheets so I can't get those anymore. But you can get a photocopy of your answer sheets.
If you got less marks or unsatisfactory marks, let me tell you that it may not necessarily be your fault. Most of the time, the fault is with the arbitrary evaluation procedure of your University and my goal is to highlight this problem that students face every day every where. My goal is to create awareness among students that their precious time and energy is being wasted by sheer callousness of University authorities. Remember, if you don't speak up, if you don't rise up, if you don't demand anything, you will never get anything.
If you need any help, financial or otherwise, let us know.-Adv. Hanumant Deshmukh
