After waiting for their fourth semester marksheets for much longer than they initially expected, students who passed out from the Goa University English, Political Science and Women’s Studies post-graduate courses are set to get their marksheets on Friday.   

Frustrated over the long delay in getting their marksheets issued by the University and no assurances from the authorities for a long time, the aggrieved students finally were assured on Tuesday that they would get them on Friday by the Registrar.   

The students, who need their marksheets to apply for jobs met Professor YV Reddy on Tuesday and were promised that their marksheets would go to print on Thursday and be issued on Friday, bringing much relief to the anxious students.   

Students from the Center of Latin American Studies were issued their marksheets on Tuesday itself.   

Even though students were expecting their marksheets in June, after having answered their exams in April, trouble arose when a Board in the University found that certain students had answered extra optional papers which led to them earning more than the required 80 credits to complete the course. Students were given the liberty to earn as many credits as they wanted to, but at the time of preparation of results, it was found that allowing the students to complete too many extra credits was not in keeping with a particular ordinance.   

Hence, the results of many departments in the Arts section were kept on hold, till authorities decided how to go about resolving the issue.   

 Earlier in June, officials from the university did not disclose why there was a delay in giving the marksheets. But later in July, the students learnt of the ‘extra credits’ going against a statute of the University and grew more frustrated with the authorities failing to address their apprehensions.   

Finally, a team of three students headed by ex-president of the Post-Graduate Students Union (PGSU) Gaurav Phadte met the Registrar on Tuesday who informed them that the issue had been sorted out and their marksheets will be issued on Friday. Meanwhile, students pursuing their masters degrees in the ongoing academic year have been advised to answer only 80 credits, even though they are allowed to attend as many courses as they find interesting.
