Mumbai University results: 3.25 lakh answer sheets yet to be evaluated

mumbai university results, mu.ac.in result, mumbai university results

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.

NEET 2017: Tamil Nadu makes ‘last effort’ to exempt its students from entrance

TN Health Minister C Vijayabaskar and Health Secretary J Radhakrishnan on Monday made the “final effort” to approach the centre to ask for the state’s exemption from the National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) 2017. The ministers met Union Health Minister JP Nadda and Minister of State at the PMO Jitendra Singh to discuss the issue.

“As a final effort, Vijayabaskar met Nadda and Singh to pressure them for an exemption for Tamil Nadu from the National Entrance Cum Eligibility Test (NEET),” an official release said, adding that this comes after several efforts by Tamil Nadu ministers to convince the centre, including meetings with CM K Palaniswami, PM Narendra Modi and other officials.

The medical entrance exam had been made compulsory last year for those seeking admission to medical colleges in the country. Since then, the exam has been subject to a number of changes and has seen numerous protests. Tamil Nadu has sought exemption from NEET on the argument that students from the state will be at a disadvantage compared to students studying at schools affiliated with central boards upon which the NEET syllabus is based.

The assembly had passed two bills in February so that undergraduate medical admissions can continue on the basis of class 12 marks instead of NEET.

Cut funding to 28 DU colleges, Manish Sisodia tells finance department

Manish Sisodia, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, Ramjas School, Ramjas School Principal, Delhi News, Indian Express, Indian Express News

The Delhi government Monday directed that disbursement of funds to 28 government-funded colleges in Delhi University be stopped. The move comes after the university failed to appoint governing bodies for the colleges, despite receiving 11 communications in the last 11 months as well as a warning. The governing body supervises and controls affairs of the college, and also handles its funds. It has members suggested by both the Delhi government and the university. Once constituted, it would give the Delhi government a say in the matters of the college through its appointed members.

In a series of tweets, Education Minister and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said he “cannot allow unchecked corruption and irregularities to be sustained on Delhi government funds in the name of education” and added that he has ordered the finance department to stop funding the 28 colleges. Earlier, Sisodia had described the delay in appointing governing bodies in colleges as “farcical” and “deliberate”. Last Tuesday, he had directed the Director (Higher Education) to communicate to the university that “all funds from government of NCT of Delhi shall be stopped if the governing bodies are not constituted by July 31, 2017”. Sisodia had also directed the Principal Secretary (Finance) to stop the fund unless “written communication was received from (the) directorate of higher education (stating) that governing bodies have been constituted”.

On Monday, the Delhi government maintained that they have written to the Delhi University 11 times since last September on the issue. In his directions to the education department in July this year, Sisodia described the sequence of events as “too much of a coincidence”, especially when the process of recruiting ad hoc and regular teachers was going on. He added that it was “absolutely farcical” that the university, after a delay of five months, was “now setting up a committee to review the panel of names sent by…itself”.

Meanwhile, the AAP had alleged that the Delhi University administration, under pressure from the Centre, had deliberately not constituted governing bodies of the 28 colleges that are fully or partially aided by the Delhi government. While 12 are fully funded, the government provides five per cent grant to the 16 others. The remaining 95 per cent is given by the UGC. However, Devesh Sinha, DU’s Dean of Colleges, said, “We discussed the matter with Sisodia ji’s office Monday morning. The list of governing body members that we get from the Delhi government goes to DU’s Executive Council, to make sure there is a healthy mix of educationists, lawyers, journalists, etc in each governing body. But since our V-C and other top officials are occupied with the Law Faculty interviews, there has been some delay in the process. The matter will be sorted in a few days; they can’t cut funding.”

S K Garg, principal of Deen Dayal Upadhyay College, which gets 100 per cent funding from the Delhi government, said this was a matter between the university and the government. “The college cannot do anything in this. If our funds are cut, we’ll shut the college. What else can we do?” he said.

SPPU comes to Mumbai University’s rescue, dedicates 50 teachers for paper assessments

Savitribai Phule Pune University, SBPU, secret committee, irregularity, cheating examinations, Indian express India news, India news

As the University of Mumbai (MU) struggles with paper assessments, Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) has come to its rescue by dedicating a team of 50 professors to conduct assessments. Of the 477 examinations, the results of 340 courses were pending till July 30. In a desperate attempt to meet the deadline, MU officials had sent an appeal to the neighbouring universities. In case of SPPU, they had requested that at least 300 professors be put on the job. However, looking at the varsity’s own work pressure and admissions, about 50-60 teachers have been identified and nearly 40 computers have been dedicated solely for this job. The teachers are said to be from different departments under the Science and Management faculty.

However, despite their best intentions, the faculty at SPPU hasn’t been able to help much in terms of paper assessments. And the main reason behind this is the complicated software adopted by MU. “They have adopted some new software from this year and instead of manual assessments, the assessment has gone online. But it is not Internet-based. They have some new system which requires the answer sheets to be scanned and put into a software. This software then reads the answer sheet and displays it to the assessing teacher on a screen and that person then has to assess it and put the marks separately into a common system. It’s quite a complicated one and our teachers are taking time to adapt to it,” said one of the varsity officials. SPPU Vice-Chancellor N R Karmalkar agreed that the new software was one of the main reasons for the “slow work” on paper assessments.

“Initially, we had hoped to correct at least 1,000 answersheets in a day. However, owing to the complicated software, we are unable to do so and work is much slower than expected. I had dedicated at least 35-40 computers and 50 teachers for this job. But the data is heavy and it’s taking time to download the papers. Even this on-screen assessment system is new and is going very slow. Also, another hindrance for us is the significant difference in the syllabus and the paper patterns,” said Karmalkar.
