Mumbai University Revaluation results not in, students to sit for exam again
The delay in declaring the revaluation results of the April – May exam answer sheets has put some Mumbai University students in a quandary. Even as students are waiting for the university to send photocopies of their answer sheets, they will have to re – appear for the paper this month as the October, 2013 exams begin.
Around 6,000 applications for the revaluation of answer sheets of the April – May exam are pending with the university’s examination department. This year, the university received around 35,500 applications for revaluation. Of this, the authorities have managed to declare the results for 29,500 students. The rest of them will be forced to appear for the re – examination.
Senate member Sudhakar Tamboli said the university charges around 550 for one application. “If they are charging so much, why can’t they deliver on time? Students have to separately fill the form for the re – examination.
If these students clear the exam in the revaluation, then why should they be even going through the gruelling process of appearing for the same exam again?” he said.
He added that the issue will be raised in the upcoming senate elections on 15th October, 2013. The vice – chancellor’s directives state that results for revaluation should be out within 45 days of the applied date, added student activist, Santosh Gangurde.
Padma Deshmukh, the examination controller, said, “We are getting the revaluation done as and when teachers are available. Every hour the numbers keep changing and we upload the results online in real time. By this weekend, the balance applications will be sorted out.” She added that teachers are not available for revaluation work as they are busy with the credit – based grading system, which keeps them busy throughout the year.
