Centralized External Examination Cell at UHS Bagalkot:

Centralized External Examination cell at UHS Bagalkot has been in operation since the academic year, 2014-15.  Eight Colleges of Horticulture spread across the state Karnataka are under the University of Horticultural Sciences, located at Bagalkot.  In order to bring uniformity in the students’ evaluation in the subjects taught, centralized final theory examination has been introduced. The examination will be conducted simultaneously at all 8 colleges under CCTV surveillance on the specified time and date with a common question paper.

Once the final exam for the day is over, all the answer papers will be sent to the main campus at Bagalkot. After receiving answer papers from all the eight colleges, papers will be shuffled and coding will be done. Thus shuffled and coded papers will be evaluated at the main campus by any five faculty members who had offered the courses at different colleges. Decoding will be done and verified the total marks and sent the final exam results all the colleges to notify in the notice boards. Any student can see the marks of any other students of the same or other college.

Photocopies of the answer papers will be given to the requested students on a nominal fee basis. Re-totaling of marks also will be taken up upon student’s requests. Re-evaluation of the answer papers will also carried out if a student feels not satisfied with the obtained marks.
