Amritsar, June 14

About 300 Guru Nanak Dev University students who recently graduated from the university received job offers from multinational companies at attractive packages. But these students are now faced with a special situation due to the unavailability of the detailed marks certificates (DMC) of their intermediate semesters, since they were promoted last year on the basis of the cumulative average of their grades from previous semesters according to government guidelines in the wake of Covid.

The GNDU Placement Cell is in contact with the recruiters and is working to resolve the issue. We have already intervened in this matter by sending letters to several multinationals.

Some of the companies offering jobs are struggling to evolve a criteria to hire potential employees in the absence of concrete and comprehensive proof of their academic performance in the form of DMCs of all semesters. Suddenly, their job offers were retained and the students had to turn to the university to seek a solution. “Most of these students had appeared in off-campus recruiting and received job offers. We are working on all possible ways to resolve the issue. Companies do not ask for a DMC but for an aggregate of notes. We are working on it,” said Dr. Hardeep Singh, Dean of Academic Affairs and Welfare, GNDU.

Reservations are also expressed on the system for conducting unproctored exams by e-mail for students in the exit class. The system of conducting unproctored exams via email by sending quizzes and then receiving student answer sheets via email has not gone down very well with students and their employers.

“The GNDU Placement Cell is in contact with the recruiters and is working to resolve the issue. We have already intervened in the matter by sending correspondence to several multinationals,” said Amit Chopra, Deputy Placement Officer, GNDU. We have placed about 700 students from various professional courses through online recruitments on campus and most of the recruiters, knowing the special circumstances created by the pandemic,” he said.
