Students intending to change college need not obtain Deputy Director’s counter signature

The Pre-University Education Department in Dakshina Kannada has adopted a novel, student-friendly way of issuing marks cards to students completing first PU instead of the respective colleges issuing them individually. The new marks cards will have the signature of the Deputy Director of the department.

Thus, first PU pass student intending to join another college to pursue second PU need not visit his college to get student unique number and then visit DDPU to get the officer’s counter signature on the marks card for admission in the new college. Over 34,000 first year PU students in the district will receive these new marks cards on March 19 facilitated by “Su Vidya”, a web-based application launched by Dakshina Kannada Pre University College Principals Association last year.

“The new marks cards will come with a student’s unique number given by the PU department that has to be mentioned while seeking transfer. As marks cards will have the specimen signature of DDPU, there is no need to get them countersigned by the official,” said K.K. Upadhaya, principal of S.M. Kushe PU College, who is among among the seven members of the examination committee of the association involved in development of “Su Vidya”.

Hitherto, PU colleges were issuing their own marks cards. Students seeking transfer had to make visits to the college to get their unique number. Time was also being consumed in getting the counter signature of the Deputy Director on the marks card. The then Director of Pre-University Board C. Shikha launched “Su Vidya” along with a revamped website, www.dkpucpa.com, of the association that intended to bring transparency in declaration of first PU results. All the 210 PU colleges in the district have adopted the web-based application.

Online results

Principal of Kittel Memorial PU College A. Vittala, who is a member of the examination committee of the association, said that first year PU students can check their results online on the website by mentioning their unique number and their date of birth.

Mr. Vittala said that marks scored by each student were entered in the “Su Vidya” application after evaluation of papers and checking by a nodal officer of cluster PU colleges before releasing to DDPU.
