Mangalore University vice-chancellor P S Yadapadithaya, who chaired the meeting, approved the guidelines for pursuing two academic programmes simultaneously, on Tuesday. The VC said a student will be able to pursue two UG, two diploma and two PG programmes, or one PG programme and one UG programme, without violating eligibility conditions for admission to these programmes, with an online or open and distance learning course, simultaneously. The pursuit of two academic programmes, aims at multidisciplinary and holistic education, and will offer students a range of disciplines, including professional technical and vocational subjects. The council also approved maternity leave of 240 days for women students, as per the UGC guidelines.
Disciplinary action will be taken over exam goof

The VC said that disciplinary action will be initiated against the Board of Examiners (BoE) within 15 days, for the mistake in the second semester BBA Kannada question paper. Students were provided with the question paper of the first semester.

Yadapadithaya said that a detailed standard operating procedure (SOP) for the exam process, will be prepared by the university. Though there is an SOP, it will be strengthened to plug the existing loopholes. A committee has been constituted for the same, he said. He said that action will also be taken against evaluators, for erratic valuation of answer scripts. If there is more than a 20% difference in the marks obtained by the student, who applied for revaluation, then the revaluation fee will be reimbursed. The remuneration of such teachers will be deducted, and they will be asked to bear the expenses incurred on the revaluation. A warning letter will also be issued. Earlier, only 50% of the fee was reimbursed, if there was a 10% difference in the marks obtained during revaluation.
