Why did you get less marks? PDF Print E-mail

"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.

  • Varun Pratap singh  - Arbitrary evaluation
    Hi Sir

    First of all MY HEARTIEST THANKS TO YOU for this revolutionary website. It is one of the pillars for my law exams' preparation & exposure to reality.
    Sir, I very well agree with the article. I secured Gen. Rank 1 in Law entrance of MJP Rohilkhand Univ entrance exam, getting 9/10 marks in every internal marking, attended lectures, yet I failed in Contracts-1 !!
    I have studied RK Bangia's book & my answers were based upon your notes, but all I have is a Red mark-sheet.
    I filed an RTI aplication on 15 June, but am still awaiting response.
    Please guide..

    Thank You very much for your kind efforts.

    Dear Varun,
    If you filed RTI application on Jun 15th, you should have received a response by Jul 15th. If you haven't, you should make a first appeal to the VC of your Universtiy as soon as possible and if even that is denied appeal to MP SIC. Make sure you include the MP SIC decision (posted in the above article) with your appeals.

    Don't lose hope. You will get a copy of your answer sheet, which you can show to your professors to see if it was evaluated correctly. If not, you can file a writ petition in HC.

  • Majid  - Unfair Fair Checking of answer sheet
    Dear Sir,

    I am a student of Mumbai University (F.Y.LLB) 2010-11
    Failed in Sem - I exams (Contract - I and Labour Laws).
    Applied for photo-copy of answer papers and re-appeared.
    Received photocopies after the re-exam results.

    Please guide if any action possible to get revaluation done as I feel fair marks were not given.

    Thanks and Regards

    I am 3rd year of intergrated b.a.llb(hons.) from amity university.The attitudue of my university is vry rigid and unsustanible some times.they all focused about 75%attendence at any cost nor they accept any any medical evidence or listen any family problem. They first debar students from giving examination and then they impose year back on students.perusual of marksheet also done on discrminstion basis.students who hold god relations with faculty always good marks. It become so frustating. Giving such a huge amount of fee sometimess feel usless.what action we can take against such private universites. ?.
  • K
    I am also from Amity University.....friend there's nothing we can do....all that they're concerned is about demanding exorbitant sums of money and not listening to students pleas when it's really important that they shud do so.....

    Respected Sir,

    I am a student of Mangalore University and have secured 2nd Rank in Bachelors of Academic Law. In my 8th Semester, two of my papers were undervalued and hence I put both for revaluation. I got the answer sheets photocopied and I was told by my concerned lectureres that I deserve atleast 25 to 30 marks more. But when the results of reval came, I had further lost marks. Though I have copies of the answer sheet, there is nothing I can do though I know I deserve better marks. The Registrar (Eval) has nothing else to say other than "Theres nothing I can do". We were told that more often than not, papers are sent to professors who dont teach the same subject which leads to undervaluation.Thought of filing a writ but was discouraged. Sad educational system indeed!

  • Santosh  - How to pass LLB exam

    Please follow the below s***estion if you want to crack L.L.B exam in mumbai university.

    1. Please complete all the 12 marks and short notes question from the mumbai university paper. This will cover the 60% of the syllabus.

    2. For the people who do only study at the last moment. Please prepare the bullet points and right the answer based on this bullet points.

    3. For 12 marks question, Length of answer should be minimum 4.5 pages (front & back = 2 pages) and 5 marks question it should be 2.5 pages (front & back = 2 pages)

    4. Go through Problem & answer section of the last 4 four year.

    5. Try to answer the at least 8 correct answer from the 2 marks answer. This is the area where u get most marks.

    6. Attempt all the question and note that answer sheet give to should be all filled. Atleast 32 pages should be filled with answer. short the area of answer sheet by putting border on one side.

    7. Refer both mokal and javbhala. Reference to Javbhala should be done for 12 & 5 marks answer to get the point which is simple to write and remember therby making the answer big.

    Note- This is my general opinion and not hard and fast rule.
