Even as University of Mumbai begins assessment work for the summer semester examinations, over 45,000 students who had appeared for various exams in the earlier semester are still awaiting results. As per the figures provided by the University on Wednesday, 45,807 students of the 3,76,686 who appeared for exams in November-December have been left hanging.
“Assessment is near completion for most courses and we will declare pending results within two-three days. However, Law results will take about eight more days,” said Dr Arjun Ghatule, Director of Board of Exams & Evaluation. The varsity is yet to decide whether Law papers should be excluded from onscreen evaluation after a proposal was made by the faculty, saying this delays assessment as most faculty members are lawyers who cannot evaluate papers during court hours.

“We know that there are fewer assessors for law, but this should not be the reason for delayed results,” said Dr Devanand Shinde, In charge Vice-Chancellor, adding, “We are doing our best to ensure that the existing faculty does the evaluation efficiently. We have also allowed practising lawyers, with more than two years of teaching experience, to assess papers.”
Shinde said that after assessment mess last year, the varsity has finally come to stage where all technical glitches have been eliminated. “Now, reputed universities such as the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU), have approached us to understand the Onscreen evaluation process to implement it in their institutions,” he added.
