Mumbai University students still await re-evaluated answer papers who had applied
Almost three months after the University of Mumbai announced the third year (semester 6) results in June, thousands of students who had applied for rechecking of answer papers are still waiting to hear from the authorities. Many have missed out on admissions to master’s courses while several others have complained about losing out on good job offers because of this unwarranted delay cause by the varsity A Right to Information (RTI) query filed by activist Vihar Durve this year revealed that around 1.2 lakh students had applied for re-evaluation in May this year Jto The university authorities said they still have a long way to go before they complete the process. “We have finished releasing re-evaluated marks of 60% applicants, and the rest will also be announced soon. Students will be informed as and when their results are ready,” said Deepak Wasave, controller of examination, MU.
Students have also tried contacting the university through their college, hoping to speed up the process, but to no avail. “If they don’t release our re-evaluated marks and new mark sheets, even those who are planning to study in foreign universities will be hit. Even after repeated requests to speed up the process of two of our students, the officials have not responded,” said the principal of a suburban college.
