The result has become controversial after the Musicology Department students complained that the result has been 'revised' to give passing marks to an unsuccessful student.

He said the administration had received complaints against several teachers in this regard.

A student, seeking anonymity, said the result was declared on November 21, but a viva was conducted on December 23, which was in violation of the rules as the result had been announced a month prior to the 'reconsidered' viva.
