Mumbai University semester exams may be held online

As per reports, the upcoming examinations of Mumbai University’s semester-end tests might be held in the month of December and in online mode, with over 25 multiple-choice questions (MCQs).

Earlier in the October examinations for the outgoing batch of 2019-20, there were 25 MCQs. However, this time, the MU might change the pattern and add more questions. Moreover, proctoring or digital supervision will be made mandatory and cases of malpractices will be dealt with strictly.

Mumbai University had earlier issued guidelines with regards to the deployment of online software in view of the final-year examinations. The University of Mumbai, in its circular, had stated that there will be the use of proctoring or digital supervision, with or without a camera in order to conduct the examinations online. This deployment will be held across 750 affiliated colleges for 2.5 lakh students. Moreover, the circular mentions that the software can be accessed on laptops, desktops or mobile phones, keeping in mind the convenience of all students.

Even though the Maharashtra government is yet to take a decision regarding the reopening of campuses due to the pandemic, the university plans to conduct the examinations in the MCQ format like it was done in the month of October. Moreover, examinations for the final-year students will be decentralized and will be conducted at the college level this year.

On the other hand, earlier on November 12, Mumbai University announced the results of close to 9,000 MCom students as well as final-year BA and BCom students of the Institute of Distance and Open Learning (IDOL). As per reports, close to 9,000 students appeared for the final-year MCom examinations from the university and its affiliated colleges out of which 95 per cent have passed. With regards to IDOL, 87 per cent of the 6,000 TYBCom students passed and the success rate of TYBA students was over 90 per cent.
