AIOU students still waiting for detailed mark-sheets
Islamabad:More than 300 students of MSc Gender & Women Studies (session 2008-2010) of Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU), Islamabad, are facing problems, as they have not received their detailed mark-sheets yet.
Around 300 students were enrolled in AIOU in the programme of MSc Gender & Women Studies in session 2008-2010. Although they have passed the examination yet they are still waiting for their detailed mark-sheets.
Many students while talking to ‘The News’ said that the concerned officers are not ready to solve their problems and they are using delaying tactics.
They said officials in Examination Department are saying that the department has offered this programme without the approval of Academic Council and they would not issue the detailed mark-sheets until the approval of the programme.
A student, on condition of anonymity, said that he has got admission in M.Phil programme of Quaid-i-Azam University but his admission wouldn’t be secure until he submit his detailed mark-sheets, but no one at the AIOU is ready to help him.
He said like him all the students are badly suffering and worried about their future. They said that if the programme was not approved then why it was offered. “The VC AIOU should take notice of this mismanagement and issue us detailed mark-sheets so that we could get admission for further studies,” he added.
When ‘The News’ contacted, Head of Department Gender & Women Studies AIOU Dr. Riffat Haq said that there was little misunderstanding at the Examination Department because of the bifurcation of full-credits courses, which has created confusion. He said that students don’t know the exact situation that’s why they are saying that programme was not approved. The fact is that the programme was already approved and now we have again discussed this issue in the meeting of Academic Council and the students would get their detailed mark-sheets very soon.The news.
