MUMBAI: The specially disabled students of the University of Mumbai (MU) will get a special reference on their answer paper in a form of a stamp from the upcoming winter examinations. This stamp, according to the varsity will ease the assessment process for the online assessment system and the assessors.

Earlier this year, the varsity issued a circular to all it’s affiliated colleges, which said that disabled students should get 20 minutes extra for every one-hour which means in total they shall get 60 minutes extra for three hour examination. Along with this, they also get five per cent concession in the examination fees.

However, prior to this circular regarding the stamp, during the assessment the assessors often confuse the papers of specially disabled students with the regular students.

“By the stamp on their answer papers, the assessors and the system can assess the papers considering the regulations formed by the state government. This will help the students to score better and make the teachers’ work easier,” said Arjun Ghatule, director and controller of
the Board of Examinations, Mumbai University.  

This stamp will be made available in both Marathi and English language that will be attached to the answer paper.
