It's the same old story since last many years - the falling standards of education in Nagpur University, especially of the professional courses. This year's BE first year engineering results again turned out to be dismal at 37.22%. For many years, ever since the number of colleges mushroomed, the results were more or less the same as per Controller of Examinations (CoE) Siddharth Kane.


About 21,865 candidates appeared for the BE exam from 55 engineering colleges (Three are autonomous - Ramdeobaba, YCCE and GH Raisoni) under NU, of which 8,138 managed to clear it. 2,926 girls cleared it with 42.24 passing percentage while 5,212 boys passed with success rate of 34.88%. Among all students, the success rate of ex-students is even dismal at 31.68% as compared to 40.80% of regular ones.


Nuva College of Engineering topped the list with 77.56% followed by Tulsiramji Gaikwad-Patil with 77.56% and National Power Training Institute (NPTI) at 76.19%. Among those who fared badly included - Central India College of Engineering at Lonara at 4.65% followed by Suryodaya College of Engineering at Vihigaon at 8.39% and Wardha-based Om College of Engineering at 8.51%. Even Government College of Engineering, Chandrapur, fared badly with 45.10% passing percentage and didn't figure among top ten in the NU list.


The CoE attributed the poor results to degrading quality of education imparted to the students in the colleges nowadays. "The trend has been going on for many years," he said while denying that introduction of semester pattern in first year from this academic session would further reduce the success rate.


Engineering dean Ravindra Kshirsagar, however, blamed low eligibility criteria for the dismal performance. "Though there is slight increase in this year's results, those are still labelled as poor. If students getting 45% are getting admission to engineering courses, such results are no surprise," he said.


He added that though number of seats was on the rise, quality has been the biggest casualty. "Severe shortage of good lecturers and principals is adding to the woes of the students," he said.


Endorsing him, Nuva College vice principal BS Bhowmick said they paid personal attention to individual students and had targeted for 100% results. "Every lecturer has been given charge of 15 students to groom them personally and academically. We've a year-long planning and students mentoring programmes throughout the year that helps in getting good results," he said.


Tulsiramji Gaikwad-Patil College director Mohan Gaikwad said that low eligibility criteria was of course one of the factors, but certainly not an excuse. "We worked hard on every student just like nursery teachers do it on kids. We introduced innovative teaching methods and also emphasized on revision to get these results," he said.
