Mumbai: The Mumbai University (MU), despite missing two deadlines given by the Bombay high court, is yet to declare over 12,000 re-evaluation results.

State education minister Vinod Tawde told The Asian Age, “The students should manage by choosing what is right for them. They should judge whether to wait for the re-evaluation results or to go ahead with AT KT or repeaters’ examinations.”

 

Students who have either failed or scored less in their fresh or term examination are the ones who have applied for re-evaluation. Students who are dissatisfied with their marks or feel that the assessment has not been done properly can apply for re-evaluation through their respective colleges. However, if students fail again in their re-evaluation results, they would go for the AT KT. This year, the varsity got more than 68,000 re-evaluation applications, of which it has so far declared around 57,000.

The MU was supposed to hold the winter exams in August and September. However, due to the delay in results, the exams were postponed to November and December.

 

Early November, MU postponed all its post-graduate and law exams by seven to 14 days.

Mr Tawde said, “If we keep pushing the dates, the vicious circle will continue in coming academic years. So to avoid that, we will be going ahead and conducting our regular exams. Moreover, re-evaluation is a big process so it will take time to complete.”

Another MU official said that all of them were currently focusing on releasing  re-evaluation results. “The undergraduate winter exams have already begun. We have started receiving papers of self-financed courses which need to be assessed. Hence, we are trying our best to complete the assessment process, so we can avoid a mess at the eleventh hour,” the official said.
