MU defers law exams by a week

Representational

Mumbai: Students of Bachelor of Law (LLB) course will have to wait as their semester exams have been postponed to next month by Mumbai University (MU). However, only 787 candidates passed the examination and the remaining 1484 students failed.

Students claimed they can not appear for semester exams when they have not received the results of the previous semester. Similarly, the semester six exam of General LLB has been pushed to June 30 from May 22, while the semester four exam of general LLB will begin on May 31 now instead of May 23. "The MU must ensure that the new dates do not clash with the Company Secretary exams. They must provide students a realistic deadline for declaring results before conducting fresh examinations", said Sachin Pawar, president of the Students' Law Council, which is spearheading the students' agitation over delays in results.

12 exams of Law course have been postponed by the university from mid-May to end of May and June. "Students have asked for this postponement and now they will have to bear the repercussions of the same".

Semester V and LLB Semester I results were announced by Mumbai University on Tuesday, May 15. It had a pass percentage of 36.26 per cent.

But CS course students, many of whom are also pursuing LLB are anxious. A senior MU official said, "If exams are postponed, it will further delay announcement of results which will automatically affect admissions to further courses and applications for jobs. Those wishing to go overseas for future studies will have to give up one year, which will not be compensated by the University".

"We will think about the CS students, but can not give any assurance right now", said Vinod Malale, PRO of the Examination Department of Mumbai University. "Five hundred scripts of the fifth semester, which have been written in Marathi, are yet to be assessed and it will take around five to six days to complete it".
