Colleges affiliated with the University of Mumbai (MU) have requested varsity officers to revoke the March 10 deadline set to maintain examinations for Masters programmes. Colleges stated that the pandemic restricted them from conducting on-line lectures for 5 hours a day, thus making it almost unattainable to conduct exams in two weeks after courses had been reopened.
MU began the admissions counselling course of for aided schools on December 30, 2020, with college students becoming a member of courses in January. However, in some instances, college students joined courses on Jan 27 as per a trainer at an aided establishment.
The trainer went on to say that college officers haven’t any coordination with one another including that the exams division is prioritizing holding exams with out understanding the realities on the bottom.
This echoes the broader sentiment amongst aided schools that there’s merely not sufficient time to put together for an examination. However, MU officers are but to present any clarifications on the requests made by aided schools.
