Mumbai: A day after the lapse of the July 31 deadline for announcement of final year results as given by the state governor and chancellor of the Mumbai University (MU) C. Vidyasagar Rao, the varsity could add only 12 to the tally of the total number of exams whose results were published. Till Tuesday late night, only 183 results were declared. Till Monday, the results of 171 exams had been declared. Out of a total of 477 exams, results of 294 exams are still pending even as vice-chancellor Sanjay Deshmukh on Tuesday assured a protesting Yuva Sena delegation that the remaining results will be declared by August 15.

MU registrar M. A Khan said, “Law and Commerce have too many students than any other departments in the university. However, we are declaring results of small courses but eventually we will declare the results of everything that is pending. Students don’t need to panic, they will get their results.”

Khan had told The Asian Age on Monday that all the pending results i.e., 306 (excluding the ones released on Tuesday) would be declared on or before August 8.

However, August 15 is now the university’s new final deadline. This came to light when Yuva Sena members protested outside MU’s Kalina Campus on Tuesday demanding to meet the vice-chancellor. A member of Yuva Sena said the VC had promised to declare the results of Law and Commerce by August 15. “Also, a help desk has been started in order to give the students’ a confidential mark sheet which will be like a temporary mark sheet that will state the details of the student like name, course, year and remark i.e., pass or fail,” the member said.
