Mumbai University Result 2017: Lately, the University of Mumbai has been in the news a lot and the reasons were not for good reasons. A a recent incident is adding to the feel-bad quotient. A third-year law student has claimed that she was marked present in an examination that she never took. In fact, according to Indian Express, hundreds of law students have filed complaints of being marked absent even after they appeared for an exam! According to the girl, she was given 21 marks in her Indian Penal Code (IPC) paper despite being absent for it. Her result was declared on Wednesday. After checking her score, she was quoted saying, “I was surprised to see I have secured 21 marks when I had not even appeared for the IPC paper.”
Not just her, several other students have said that they were either marked absent for an exam that they appeared for or their results had been withheld without any reason. The girl, who is a final year student at the New Law College said that although she had cleared all her previous semesters, her final semester results had been put on reserve for “not clearing lower examination,” as quoted by Indian Express. Another student who did not want to be named said, “I don’t have any back papers or failures in the previous semesters and yet, my results have been withheld.” The university when contacted said that the complaints would be looked into on a case-by-case basis and a senior official said all results that are on hold would be declared in the next 10 days.
The results of three exams were declared on Thursday. While 7,420 papers have been assessed till now, the results of 30 papers are pending. An official while talking about the matter said, “If the result is in the reserved list, it could be because the paper has not been evaluated. We are trying to complete all assessment at the earliest.”
