Colleges Ask Mumbai University to Withdraw March 10 Deadline for PG Exams


Colleges affiliated with the University of Mumbai (MU) have asked varsity officials to revoke the March 10 deadline set to hold examinations for Masters programmes. Colleges said that the pandemic restricted them from conducting online lectures for five hours a day, thus making it nearly impossible to conduct exams in two weeks after classes were reopened. 

MU started the admissions counselling process for aided colleges on December 30, 2020, with students joining classes in January. However, in some cases, students joined classes on Jan 27 as per a teacher at an aided institution.

The teacher went on to say that university officials have no coordination with each other adding that the exams department is prioritizing holding exams without understanding the realities on the ground. 

This echoes the broader sentiment among aided colleges that there is simply not enough time to prepare for an examination. However, MU officials are yet to provide any clarifications on the requests made by aided colleges.
