Mumbai University results 2017: Law student gets 21 marks for paper she never took
Another deadline has passed and students are still awaiting Mumbai University Results 2017. While many have complained of being marked absent for exams they took, a student who was absent for one examination has received 21 marks, much to her surprise.
The University has come under severe fire for delaying the announcement of results and missing multiple deadlines from June. Despite the Governor's and Bombay High Court's directions, the University has failed to meet a fresh deadline that it gave itself, August 31. On Thursday the University told the Bombay High Court that results of most of the major exams have been declared, but have not been uploaded to the university's web portal yet.
Results of 16 Law examinations were declared on Thursday. This is when the student noticed the discrepancy. The girl told a newspaper that she received 21 marks in Indian Penal Code (IPC) paper despite being absent for the exam. While on one hand students have been crying foul over being marked absent for exams that they took, this student was not only marked present for an exam she took but also received 21 marks.
While 7,420 papers have been assessed till now, the results of 30 papers are pending. The University told the Bombay High Court that 151 out of 153 examinations of Arts courses, 45 of 47 examinations of science courses, 32 of the 36 management examinations and 170 of the 175 technology courses have already been declared so far. Out of the 50 commerce courses, results of 30 have been declared and 20 will be declared shortly, the court was told.
