Mumbai: Mumbai University has assured the Bombay high court that it is making a proper plan to ensure that the issue of delay in results does not take place in future. The court was hearing petitions of some students who sought postponement of the law re-exams that are scheduled to start from November 13. The students had prayed that as the revaluation results are pending, the dates for re-examination should be rescheduled after results are declared. The court directed the university to declare revaluation results of petitioning students by Friday.

A division bench of justices B.R. Gavai and Sandeep Shinde was hearing a bunch of petitions pertaining to declaration of exam results as well as the revaluation of answer sheets of declared results. Six students from a law college in Ulhasnagar along with Student Law Council also sought postponement of re-exams in light of revaluation results of nearly 11,000 students being delayed.

 

According to the petitioning law students, all final year students who were represented by senior counsel Uday Warunjikar, were awaiting revaluation results of exams they appeared for in May but even before they were declared the university has scheduled re-exams which they will be forced to appear for, hence the university should postpone the exams till the revaluation results are declared.

Earlier, Mumbai University counsel Rui Rodrigues informed the court that university’s examination department was preparing a plan for avoiding a repeat of the results fiasco that left the university red-faced and also led to the sacking of vice-chancellor Dr Sanjay Deshmukh.
