First-year students of colleges affiliated to Mumbai University can finish their foundation course projects during the Diwali vacation or after that. After colleges complained about students getting little time to finish projects, a move announced at the fag-end of the semester, university authorities decided to give them enough time.
As we reported on Monday about the university having scrapped internal assessment projects for self-financed courses and then re-introducing them in one subject, through a circular dated October 3.
Principals, however, are not convinced with the flip-flop. “The first-year semester-end exams begin soon after Diwali vacation. Students will have to study for the exam and work on projects during Diwali vacation. Assessing projects and exam answer sheets of so many students will also consume time. Everything will spill over in the second semester and will affect the schedule,” said a principal.
