Mumbai: For the first time in the history
of University of Mumbai, results for the final year B Com
examinations, conducted last week, were declared in 10 days by
evolving a new methodology.
The October examinations for TY B Com, in which 19,000
students appeared, got over on October 18 and the results went
online today, Rajpal S Hande, Director, Board of Colleges and
University Development, told agency.
The March-April exam results will also be declared
within 20 days. "This (faster declaration of results) is part
of the examination reforms which the new Vice- Chancellor
Rajan Welukar has promised to the students," he said.
The university faced criticism after the March-April
examination results were declared after 89 days as against the
statutory requirement of 45 days.
Therefore, the university developed a new strategy to
fast track the declaration of results, Hande said.
In the last five years, the earliest results declared
were in 30 days, that was in 2008, he said.
"We set up six Centralised Assessment of Papers (CAP)
centres at South Mumbai, Navi Mumbai and Thane," he said.
The entire process reduced the time of travel for
teachers to Kalina campus (in suburban Mumbai) for evaluation.
For the March exam next year, when nearly 6.5 lakh
students from 650 colleges are likely to appear, the number of
CAP centres will be raised to 15-20, Hande said.
