Bangalore University's academic council, at its meeting on Tuesday, voted for common parameters across the State Universities to award internal assessment (IA) marks to students. The proposal will be mooted at the next meeting of the Karnataka State Higher Education Council, Vice Chancellor B.Thimme Gowda said.

The proposal was a result of a discussion on the post graduate admission process. Many members pointed to lacunae in the process of awarding IA marks at the undergraduate level. Allegations ranging from owners of private colleges awarding “favourable marks" to “victimisation” of students through the process flew during the meeting.

In the end, it was resolved to constitute an expert committee to explore the possibility of implementing common IA parameters for all university students.
