This exam season has been marked by one major gaffe after the other, including a paper leak. And students’ trauma continues. So far the only B.Com students were at the receiving end, on Monday, 2nd April 2012, B.Sc and BA students were hit too. The TY B.Sc Physics paper-I was not held on Monday, 2nd April 2012, candidates who reached the centre were asked to return on Tuesday, 3rd April 2012. But the time-table on the university website shows the paper in question as scheduled for April 2. "I went to my exam centre (Bhavan’s College, Andheri) for the Physics paper-I, but I was told the university had postponed the exam by a day. Many of us returned home," said a student.
S. M. Suryawanshi, in-charge controller of examinations, said, "Since some of the optional papers for science students were overlapping, we changed the time-table for the paper in the first week of January. On January 16, we released a circular to the colleges and uploaded it on the site. It was the colleges’ responsibility to inform students about the change." Clearly, students were clueless about this change. Suryawanshi too had no answer on why the change did not reflect in the main time-table on the website.Monday, on 2nd April, saw another slipup when students of the old course for TY B.Sc (physical chemistry) were permitted to register for the same, but was asked to take the paper as per the revised syllabus. They had filled their exam forms from BN Bandodkar College, Thane, stating they would like to the take the exam for the old course. The forms were accepted by the university. But the syllabus was revised in March 2010 and science dean Madhuri Pejavar said students are allowed only three attempts after a syllabus change. "I don’t know how the university accepted their forms for the old syllabus, as it ceases to exist," said an official. Besides, the revised (80 marks) and old (100 marks) papers of TY BA (psychology) had identical questions, barring an additional one for the old course. P. G. Jogdand, dean of Arts, said he was unaware how this had happened.TY B.Com re-test for all students?While the Marketing and Human Resource Management paper for the revised course and new pattern leaked before the exam on March 28, the university has decided to hold a re-exam for all 85,440 students, including freshers, old course (Management and Production Planning) and those who were taking the exam under the revised course-old pattern. On its website, the university put out the new circular stating all students would have to take the exam again. The centre and time remain the same.
