‘Technical errors plaguing OSA have been eradicated’.
Mumbai: The University of Mumbai (MU) on Saturday said it would declare the results of all major examinations within a period of three days. Major examinations include Bachelors in Commerce (B.Com) and Bachelors in Arts (BA). MU’s announcement follows state education minister Vinod Tawde’s declaration on Friday that results of those examinations whose evaluation has been completed 96 per cent would be announced.
MU’s new acting controller of examinations (CoE) Arjun Ghatule said, “All the technical errors that have been bothering the speed of the assessment have been completely eradicated. Regarding the assessors (teachers), they have been giving their best to complete the assessment process.”
Mr Ghatule added, “Assessment of B.Com has been done, now 4 per cent evaluation process is pending, which will be done by the next week. Apart from B.Com, which has maximum students, BA’s results will be declared by Sunday evening if everything is well executed.”
According to sources, evaluation of B.Com is pending. Though assessment of marks is complete, around 2,000 papers are yet to be evaluated. The evaluation process includes totalling, marking and adding the internal assessment marks, if any. After evaluation, the total marks are given to the mark sheet department where the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is obtained. After this, the mark sheet or mark statement is created of the student and handed over within 10 days.
When Mr Ghatule was asked about the remaining results’ status, he said, “By next week, all the concrete results would be declared, if things go as planned.” According to him, the focus is on those examinations whose evaluations are 90 per cent or above completed. They will start releasing them as soon as possible.
