Abstract—This paper analysed and illustrated the impact of Mother Tongue in failure of undergraduate students in their other subjects at university level terminal examinations. According to1961 census more than 1652 languages (Mother Tongues) spoken in India in which 22 languages (Official Languages) listed in schedule VIII of constitution of India but neglected language skills development in Mother Tongue resulted the failure of education system. I have done a research on Annual Results (compared with Mother Tongue Results) of 1175 B.A & B.Sc students of Govt Funded Educational Institution affiliated to Kakatiya University, India for three consecutive academic years i.e. 2010, 2011, 2012. Finally I observed that as Mother Tongue is Medium of Instruction, poor performance in Mother Tongue leads to failure in other subjects. For further analysis I have also prepared two separate Questioners to get opinions from Lecturers and Students having 15 items in each on factores influencing the failure of students in university examinations.
Index Terms—Communicative skills, education system, mother tongue, official languages.
