MU Delays Marks Cards: Students Now in Fix

Many Mangalore University (MU) students who hope to study abroad or look for work are having a difficult time because their mark cards are taking a long time to arrive. Since the marks card is an essential document for the application process—whether it be for a job or higher education—this issue has grown to be of great worry to them.

Haniya Pereira, a hotel management student who has been accepted to a university abroad for further education, for instance, had to rush from one pillar to another to obtain her marks card, which is required for the procedure. “My course ended in August.

October marked the start of the admissions procedure, but I was without my original mark cards. I had to go to the MU administrative office and ask for the same as soon as possible as a result. After multiple journeys to Konaje, I managed to obtain it. In the meantime, I applied for the convocation certificate in November, but I haven’t gotten it yet,” Pereira said, noting that the certificate is also required for admission to foreign universities.

Not all students are as lucky as Pereira, who needed several trips to Konaje before receiving her mark card. The mark cards for many undergraduate students who finished their courses in the previous academic year are still pending.

They regularly get in touch with their college offices and demand the paperwork, but the colleges are not in charge of issuing mark cards; that duty falls on MU. “Many students expressed that they are unable to process their admission in other universities or abroad, if they do not submit their mark cards and convocation certificate,” said the principal of a private college.

‘The topic was also covered at a recent college principals’ meeting. Vice-chancellor PL Dharma, who oversaw the evaluation in her prior role as registrar, has promised that the issue will be fixed quickly. “It is better that MU takes this seriously, since the future of a lot of graduates is at stake,” emphasized a different college principal. According to PL Dharma, mark cards are being issued, with the exception of students who have completed the NEP syllabus. The NEP batch’s mark cards are accessible digitally.
