Around 3,000 students who had applied for revaluation of their grades in October last year, are in a huge mess. The Mumbai University has not completed the revaluation and students who had failed in one or more subjects in October, will have to write the exams again, beginning April 18. Most of these students had failed in one or two subjects, but under the Allowed To Keep Term (ATKT) rule, they progressed to the next semester. Students failing in up to two subjects are allowed to go through the next semester under the ATKT rule and are required to clear the subjects in which they had failed, unless they are declared pass in revaluation.
Students Mumbai Mirror spoke to said they waited for the revised grades till as late as first week of April. There was no communication from the varsity officials, they said. Now, exams just a few days away, all they can do is memorise from the study books and hope for the best. Siddharth College student Sandeep Prakash said, the rule says revaluation should be done within 45 days of submission. Its almost six months and the University is still not out with revised grades. I will have to write the exam again. Another student, Kailash Kedare, added: It’s a very tricky situation. One hopes that in a matter of a couple of days, the revised grades will be out. That doesn’t happen and suddenly, the exam date has arrived. We don’t need to go through such stress.
The Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Commerce students are especially angry. Their revised grades are uploaded on the Mumbai University website, with a disclaimer saying these are subject to changes. The Mumbai Universities controller of examination Vilas Shinde said teachers are overworked and hence, the revaluation could not meet the deadline. Teachers are neck deep in work. They are trying their best, he said. Shinde added students too are to be blamed for the delay. Many students apply for revaluation after the date of submission has passed by, he added.
About the disclaimer on the varsity website, Shinde said, It is because we don’t know how many grace marks each student will be awarded. We have started uploading the final results, but can’t specify a time frame.
