BANGALORE: The results of II pre-university course were put up in colleges across the city on Sunday. The results were announced on Saturday online .
However, as it was a Sunday, not many turned up to verify their results.
At MES College, the results were put up around 11 a.m. There were a few students who had arrived earlier, waiting impatiently for the list to be put up. Finally, when they did, there was mixed reaction from the students, though the consensus was that the result was better than the previous year’s.
“I am happy with my score. The evaluation of the language papers, I feel, was lenient,” said Anil Bharadwaj, a commerce student, who scored 84.33 per cent and had come to confirm his result after checking it online.
However, a few other students were of the opinion that the evaluation this year was strict, which did not help many. “I had expected more marks. I know that I deserve more marks for the amount of hard work I put in. Though the papers were easy, the evaluation seems to be strict, which means that students have not got what they deserve,” said Sneha Jagadish, a science student from the same college, who secured 89 per cent. She felt that the evaluation process should become more student friendly.
Manisha Yadav, an arts student who secured 78 per cent, believed that the results in the humanities stream were good.
Seshadripuram College also saw students swarming near the results’ board. Most of them were happy with their performance. “I have been able to score well purely because of the support from my family,” said a happy and satisfied Mangala Narasimhamurthy, a commerce student of the college, who secured 89 per cent.
Shashank J. of MES College topped the Arts stream in the college by securing 86.5 per cent. Shashank, who is visually challenged, said: “I had good competition in class. But never did I think that I would get past it and stand first.”
He said he used learning aids and listened to lessons recorded on audio cassettes and computer software, specially designed to help visually challenged persons. The recorded audio tapes were provided by a trust in Vijayanagar. Shashank is passionate about music and singing. He also credits his performance to a phenomenal memory and concentration powers.
