Apart from delayed results, the students of law branch in Mumbai University had to face a new problem on Tuesday. As a result of load shedding in the area, the exam commenced one and a half hours late in an examination centre in Panvel.

A few days ago, the university decided to transfer eight papers to the colleges due to the chaos and confusion of delayed results of the law branch. The ‘Contract-2’ exam of semester second was scheduled to be conducted at St. Wilfred College in Panvel between 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM. However, due to technical difficulties, the paper could not be downloaded from the college, and hence the delay.

The college extended time enough time for the students to complete their exam, but due to sudden glitches, the students were distracted and in great stress. The university has also been demanding to reconsider the exams entrusted to the colleges.

“Students who appeared for the examination hail from Mumbai, Thane, Navi Mumbai and Alibaug. I wonder why the college administration did not make any preliminary preparations despite knowing about the load shedding situation in Panvel.” - Siddharth Ingale, LLB

Several candidates also expressed their frustration over the incident. They asked the college administration to conduct a re-examination and want the University to verify this at the earliest.

“A lot of time is lost in printing question paper copies. The digression causes anxiety to the candidates appearing for the examination which is ultimately an educational loss. I urge the University to reconsider the decision of the colleges in charge of the conduction of examination.” – Sachin Pawar, President, Student Law Council
