Anna University has appointed a panel of 3 members as some students who had failed to clear the exams were given pass marks by the professors who evaluated the answer sheets. The names of the panel members have been kept confidential.
Apparently, they were forced to give the required marks.
The mark scam of Anna University came to light when Additional Controller of Examinations was informed by senior professor that an assistant professor of the computer technology department of the Madras Institute of Technology, Chromepet has evaluated the paper and given extra marks to the student.
The concerned assistant professor has admitted to giving pass marks to students in some subjects.
