261 Mumbai University exam results still hang in the balance

Former Vice-Chancellor of Mumbai University Dr. Sanjay Deshmukh, had started the online evaluation method to evaluate the answer sheets.


Though the results of major courses of Mumbai University have been declared and the majority of students have received their results, the marks of post-graduate students, law students and IDOL (Institute of Distance and Open Learning) students of around 261 exams have not yet been declared. Until Monday morning, the University's examination and evaluation department had announced results of 229 courses. However, the students in the remaining courses are awaiting their results.

Former Vice-Chancellor of Mumbai University Dr. Sanjay Deshmukh had started the online evaluation method to evaluate the answer sheets. However, last year, the answer sheets of various streams were checked by the same method but due to some errors, lakhs of students had suffered. But despite this, the university did not make any changes and continued the online assessment. Thus, the delay in the results of examinations is inevitable.
