Mumbai University Result: Got 21 marks in exam she never took, claims Law College student

While the Mumbai University is facing flak for delaying the results, a Government Law College student has claimed that secured marks in an exam she never took.

The third-year student of a five-year LLB course under the University of Mumbai had appeared for her sixth semester in April, but had missed one paper, reported Indian Express.

“I was surprised to see I have secured 21 marks when I had not even appeared for the IPC paper,” she told the daily.

The student had missed the Indian Penal Code (IPC) paper, but still secured marks in the paper. The report also said that several students have been marked absent even after being present.

The Mumbai University has informed the Bombay High court that it is now 'striving' to complete the assessment of answer-sheets and upload all results of undergraduate exams on its website by September 6.

For the sixth time that the varsity has pushed the result announcement date after missing the initial July 31 deadline.\

One of the pleas, filed by three final year law students, had also sought that the varsity be directed to award monetary compensation to the students, who have had to endure much agony and have missed out on several opportunities for higher studies in the absence of their undergraduate results.


According to the petitioners, statutory rules mandate that the university must declare the results of any exam within 45 days of its completion and that all new academic sessions commence latest by August 1 each year.
