Pune University Sees 20% Rise In Pass Percentage After Applying Combined Passing Formula
Pune, 5th August 2022: After the Covid 19 epidemic, the Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) announced the results of its first offline exams. These data demonstrate the impact of the “combined passing approach,” as the proportion of pupils who passed has increased by at least 20%.
However, in some of the subjects, students have performed poorly on tests as a result of the lack of writing practice over the past two years.
In light of the pandemic, the university has decided on a combined passing for the academic year 2021–2022. Oral, practical, internal, and written exams are used to determine results; they are not taken separately.
Mahesh Kakade, Director of SPPU’s Examination and Evaluation Division said, “We have begun announcing the results; earlier, the results from the architectural stream from last year were announced, and today we announced the results from engineering. We saw a pattern in these findings where the combined passing approach boosted the passing percentage by almost 20%.”
He added, “The passing rate in engineering, which was previously customary to be between 55 and 60 per cent, has improved this semester, and it is the same for the other streams as well. The pharmacy results will be released soon, and the same increase may be observed there as well.”
He further said, “While taking online lessons for two years, there are some subjects where students have received poor grades due to poor writing skills.”
