After 90 days of exams, the University of Mumbai had finally declared the result on Wednesday of semester VII final year engineering students pertaining to six different branches. The detailed result were not uploaded online hence engineering students only could check if they have passed or failed, they were able to view their results only from Thursday morning onward, as told by a university official. Besides, the detailed result will be brought out open as and when colleges will receive the consolidated mark-sheets, from the university.
Among total 14 branches in final year engineering from University of Mumbai, the result of 7 branches has been announced, out of 7 four branches had below 500 students enrolled.
The result is considered to be delayed by 45-days and this made students anxious about what if they failed, since they will also have to apply for a re-exam at earliest. As per the University of Mumbai guidelines, the results must be declared within 45 days of the last exam. The final exam of final year engineering exam concluded on December 17.
The other issue is that even after the results are published online, students receive their mark sheets only after three-four days.
Along with Engineering, results of few other courses of MU were also declared this Wednesday.
In electronics and telecommunication, 56.46% of students passed, in information technology, the success rate is over 86%. In mechanical engineering, almost 60% of the students cleared the exam.
The errors in results and blunders such as students marked as absent, in which they appeared were also seen. On this, Padma Deshmukh, controller of examinations told that some students were marked absent since the answer sheets of those students were discarded by examiners due to poor resolution.
The MU lately introduced online assessment for first-year and final-year engineering exams to ensure early results.
