MUMBAI: The first year Bachelors of Science (BSc) — Computer Science students of Institute of Distance and Open Learning (IDOL) of the University of Mumbai (MU) whose examination was conducted on August 14 this year, are still awaiting their results after 65 days have already passed.

Students are in a fix as the results are yet to be declared while the last date of admission is on Saturday.

As per the Public Universities Act, the results of all examination falling under the universities should be declared preferably within 30 days of the exams, and in any case within 45 days. However, in this case, the dates have been exceeded upto 65 days and still the results are not declared. “It has been so many days and still there is no update on our results. Meanwhile, the results of students who had their exams after us has been declared. Maybe the university has completely forgotten about our course,” said a student.

Students also stated that they feel like ‘switching’ the course as they feel ‘neglected’ by the IDOL officials. “I was thinking of switching the course because nobody is bothered. We have been ignored several times,” said another student. However, they can’t switch course unless their results are being declared.

Dr D Harichandan, the director of IDOL while talking to this newspaper revealed that the results are being stuck with Maharashtra Knowledge Corporation Limited (MKCL), which is why it has been delayed so much. “It is taking some time with regards to fetching the data by the MKCL. The moment it is done, we will declare the results. And we will also extend the admission deadline as per the students'
convenience,” he said.
