Lucknow University was awarded ‘B’ grade by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). The university scored cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 69 percent.
Unhappy with the poor result, Lucknow University will now go for the reassessment, seeking improvement in the grade.
LU vice chancellor S B Nimse stated that they will appeal to NAAC for reassessment since they are short of just six percent to get an ‘A’ grade. The university will have to first make an appeal to NAAC following which they will get their score card. The university would then point out the specific areas where they have scored poor. Facts about the university will be verified and marked by NAAC, based on which they might again appoint a committee who will further check the record. Followed by this LU will make a detailed appeal.
During its visit to the university, NAAC raised serious objections on some of the issues like non-existent central placement facility for students. Recommendation on revision of course curriculum as per industry needs was also made. Tagor library which is a 75 year old library was also questioned over its non digitilisation. The team also asked the university to adopt virtues of semester system in PG which is more of a bi annual system.
