Ajmer: All 60 students of first semester at the Government Industrial Training Institute (ITI) have got zero marks in both theory and practical papers. Interestingly, these papers are 50 percent objective. Students on Saturday staged a protest against the National Council for Vocational Training (NCVT) University of Jodhpur.
Even the teachers and staff of the ITI do not believe the result. Dejected students gave a memorandum to the district collector demanding probe in the matter. They stated that they were shocked to see zero marks in their theory papers. “It is not possible that all students got zero marks and, therefore, something went wrong” said Naresh Kumar, ITI Principal, Ajmer. He added that the institute has written to the university in this matter as the result was announced on June 24. Students and the institute are waiting for the response of the university.
The students now are in a fix, if they deposit fees for the next semester, the last date of which is June 27, it would mean that they have accepted the result and would re-appear in failed papers in the next year’s examination. Whereas, if they continue with their agitation and last date of fee deposition expires, they may lose one year.
