Mumbai University results: 3.25 lakh answer sheets yet to be evaluated
While the Mumbai University (MU) has scheduled the result declaration date for the undergraduate courses today, that is, July 31, it seems the varsity will miss the deadline. Of the 477 examinations that the MU conducted in March and April this year, the results of 340 courses are pending. Even as officials are hopeful of declaring most results on Monday, the deadline set by the governor and chancellor Ch Vidyasagar Rao, a whopping 3.25 lakh answer sheets are yet to be evaluated. Over a lakh papers are to be moderated.
In Commerce stream alone, over 2.63 lakh papers are to be assessed. Monday marks the end of non-instructional days, which means assessors will have to evaluate papers and take classes.
Even as the university is hopeful of declaring all Arts, Science, Technology and Management results by July 31, it is likely that some of these results will miss the deadline. Commerce and law results will spill over to the rest of the week.
As per a press statement, the Mumbai University has received the help of the universities of Nagpur, Pune, Aurangabad and Kolhapur, and the speed of the work has accelerated. “Of the total 17,36,145 answer sheets, 90 per cent have been evaluated and 3,25,305 answer sheets will be evaluated soon,” it said.
The delay in the MU results was also raised in the ongoing monsoon session of the legislature recently. The meeting on July 28 was chaired by Nimbalkar and attended by Education Minister Vinod Tawde, MLCs Hemant Takle, Dhananjay Munde and Anil Parab among others.

Delayed results: B Pharm students miss transfer deadline, may not get into colleges of preference
The delay in declaration of results at Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) has affected scores of second-year pharmacy students, who may lose out on the chance to get admission into colleges of their choice. According to students, the results of the first-year Bachelor of Pharmacy (B Pharm) courses were released on July 26. The Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) allows first-year students to switch colleges in the second year, as transfer cases.
However, B Pharm students who had received their first-year results on July 26, said when they approached other colleges for transfers, they were turned away and told that they have “missed the deadline”. “There has been a delay in declaration of results at the university’s end, but we have to suffer. The result was apparently sent to our college late in the evening on July 25. Since the office had closed, we got it the next day. But when my friends and I approached a college to get admission, we were told that the deadline for taking transfer admissions was only till July 27, and now we are not eligible. We don’t understand how can they expect us to finish all the procedure in just one day?” asked a college student at Pimpri-Chinchwad.
Another student, who was aspiring to get admission at Indira College of Pharmacy, said he had even visited the DTE offices in Pune and Mumbai with his queries, but to no avail. “We were told that the admission calendar is set by the DTE several months in advance. Now, it is the turn of students under the Centralised Admission Process (CAP) to get admissions,” he added.
Many principals, meanwhile, said they have been inundated with students’ queries over the last few days.
“We have received many queries from students. Actually, the students got only one day for transfer, which has led to this confusion. It’s unfortunate. But second year admissions also take place through CAP. Students under CAP get direct admission in the second year after having passed a diploma in pharmacy. Their registrations are done, so it would be unfair to them as well,” said Dr Ashwini Madgudkar, principal, AISSMS College of Pharmacy.
Principals of pharmacy colleges said this year the delay in declaration of results has been rather long. “The exams got over in the last week of May. Generally, the results come by the end of June or first week of July. However, this year, the results are over three weeks late. But this problem is not restricted to Pune, many universities across the state are facing the same issues,” said P D Chaudhari, principal, Modern College of Pharmacy.
DTE officials also expressed inability to help the transfer students at this point of time. “The schedule was decided much in advance, accordingly the list of vacancies was declared. Student registrations were taken for direct admissions through CAP under second year. The deadline for transfer admissions is over. Now, after the CAP process is over, if seats are left over, those will be allotted to transfer cases,” said Dayanand Meshram, joint director of technical education, Maharashtra.
Heavy school bags in Maharashtra CBSE, ICSE schools: State to seek centre’s intervention
School students in Maharashtra may be granted relief as the Union Human Resourse Development minister Prakash Javadekar has planned to approach the state government to discuss the issue of heavy schoolbags carried by students studying in schools affiliated with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE).
School Education Minister Vinod Tawde had announced on Friday that the weight of school bags of students studying under the state board (SSC) were not heavy due to a resolution passes by the state two years ago following the Bombay High court’s directions. He said that 94 per cent of school bags in the state are now considerably lighter.
Since CBSE and ICSE affiliated schools do not come under the state’s jurisdiction, there has been no change in the issue, Tawde said adding that the state government will seek audience with the HRD minister before the end of August to check this issue.
Following this thought, Congress’ Sanjay Dutt also voiced that heavy schoolbags can result in long-term medical issues as it has been noted by doctors and asked the state government to direct the CBSE and other central boards to reduce the weight of school bags.
