Thousands of students plan to protest at the Mumbai University campus on Tuesday 2nd April, against the re-exam. However, this is not the first time that students have been at the receiving end. Last December, more than 10,000 students were forced to take a re-exam after the entire paper was leaked through SMSes. In 2004, the T.Y.B.Com accounts paper-I leaked twice and the first time, students were informed about the leak half way through the exam.
“Our paper started at 11 am and around 12.30 pm, the supervisors informed us that the paper had leaked and there was no point in writing the paper. They announced a re-exam at the end of our exams. Again, on the day of the re-exam, when we were preparing to leave for our centres, news channels flashed the news of a leak. After confirming with our college, we were told the paper had indeed leaked and students would have to appear for a re-exam almost 15 days later,” said Nikhil Satham, from the 2004 batch.Another student from the same batch said, “We were all stressed out when the re-exam was announced for the second time, almost two weeks after our main exams were over, many of us had to cancel our tickets and vacation plans to appear for the paper. The only relief was that the final paper was easy to crack and we all scored well.” A principal from a college in the western suburbs said, “In that instance, the paper leaked from a college in Tardeo. There was no principal and the in-charge principal and his accomplices were later arrested by the police for selling the papers at a price. The university decided to take strict action and they were booked under the Indian Penal Code.” This time, though the leak was not deliberate, the university has still initiated stringent measures against BNN College, Bhiwandi, to set an example for other colleges.
