Mumbai University Result 2017: After facing criticism for the delay in the declaration of undergraduate programme results, the University of Mumbai on August 31 informed the Bombay High Court that it is now “striving” to complete the assessment of answer-sheets and upload all results of undergraduate exams on its website by September 6, according to PTI. This is the sixth time, when the varsity has made the declaration – the last time it missed was on July 31. A bench consisting of justices Anoop V Mohta and Bharati Dangre directed the state Common Entrance Test (CET) cell to extend the deadline for applying to the university’s three years law courses to September 6.
Mumbai University’s counsel Rui Rodrigues while talking about the delay in results announcement accelerating the assessment of the results told the HC that the “Ganpati festival and Tuesday’s deluge” in the megapolis set its assessment process back by a further couple of days. He further said that the university had completed the assessment and declared results for all the three and five
year LLB courses. He added, “153 exams conducted for various Arts courses, results for 151 had been declared, of the 47 exams for various courses offered for the BSc degree, results for 43 had been declared, and for the 50 exams conducted for BCom courses, results for 30 exams had been declared.” However, these results are yet to be uploaded on the official website of the varsity.
While talking about the Mumbai rains that brought the city to a halt, Rodrigues said, “The heavy rains on Tuesday resulted in power outages and disrupted Internet connectivity because of which our server crashed and the results could not be uploaded. However, we have outsourced the work to another server and results should be declared by this evening.” He added, “We have also decided to send the complete Gazette or broadsheet containing the marks for all students to respective colleges so that they can check their marks from the college bulletin boards,” as quoted by PTI.
The Common Entrance Test (CET) cell had earlier extended its August 31 deadline to September 5, and today, its counsel told the court that any “further extension of the deadline will be difficult”.
