Mumbai: While the University of Mumbai (MU) teachers are sceptical about whether the results would be declared on time for the ongoing winter examinations or not, a source at the assessment unit revealed that this time the preparatory measures taken are full proof.

From segregating the answer papers according to the course, year and location to the teachers being trained beforehand for detecting glitches and assessing the papers in the new system, the varsity and the private assessment company has tried to cover all bases.

Director of Board of Examinations and Evaluation, Dr Arjun Ghatule told this newspaper that adequate training has been given to both the teaching and non-teaching staff. “Unlike last time when many teachers skipped the training and even the assessment, this time of the 13,000 teachers, 10,000 are on duty and have started the assessment. Hence, lack of staff is not an issue,” he said.

When asked about the glitches in the system, he said, “The monitoring committee will oversee the technical aspects of the process and will help in upgrading the system to let the teachers assess and evaluate the papers without any extra stress.”

A source at the assessment unit revealed that the MU, unlike last time (summer examinations), made a list of teachers, moderators, subjects, course, students, marks and evaluators, making the work easier for all the parties involved. “Last time around, even after a month of examinations, we were clueless about who was responsible for what and what should be done next. This time, they gave us the list of teachers along with other details which made the segregation process easy,” the source said.
