The faculty of Mumbai University has struggled to draw up multiple-choice questions as there has been no back paper for reference.

As per reports, it has been difficult for the teachers to formulate a bank of 250 questions as several subjects across streams do not particularly lend themselves to this pattern. Moreover, colleges have been asked to prepare sample MCQs and provide these to the students to develop an understanding about the exam pattern amidst the final-year examinations.

The final-year examinations are to be held at home and was approved by the Governor, in view of the coronavirus outbreak. The decision was released keeping the University Grants Commission (UGC) guidelines in mind, however, over the last few months, the state government has been trying hard to cancel examinations, to ensure safety for students amidst the pandemic.

Earlier, in a press conference held in Mumbai, Uday Samant, Higher Education Minister, had earlier stated that in the midst of the pandemic, the health of the students is of utmost priority which is why the government has decided to conduct it in the month of October. He also stated that some of the universities will announce the results by October 31, while the rest will announce the results by November 10.
