“What is the use of having rules and regulations when the Mumbai University is not implementing it? Lakhs of students are suffering because of the attitude of teachers towards paper assessment and in some cases, the re-evaluation results are delayed so students end up appearing for repeater exams only to find that they had cleared the paper in the first attempt itself,” said vihar dhurve, an RTI activist.
More then 2 lakh students had applied for re-evaluation of papers to the University of Mumbai between April 2014 and August 2016. Almost 73,000 students found out they passes after re-evaluation. This means almost 30% students passed a paper after being marked “fail” in their papers. “There is no form of refund given to students who were wrongly failed, nor are teachers being punished. How will this ever end?” said dhurve.
In Between April 2013 and March 2014, Mumbai university earned Rs. 2.67 crore from re-evaluation and Rs. 15.63 lakh from photocopies of answer booklets.
Officials from Mumbai University said that action cannot be taken in such cases as the purpose of re-evaluation is to give another chance to a student.
Arjun Ghatule, director of Board of Examination, said that,”If a student passed an Exam after re-evaluation doesn’t mean it’s the fault of the previous examiner/ moderator. Re-evaluation is meant to assess papers with a new perspective and if students pass, it’s the advantage they get,” he said, adding that they cannot punish teachers for such issues.
