From next semester, MU students can access marks on result day

PUBLISH DATE 3rd November 2017

To address the evaluation process, 282 Central Assessment Process centres have been set up


STUDENTS OF the University of Mumbai will now be able to check their marks on the varsity’s website as soon as the results are declared. As part of a host of reforms in the examination section of the university, the Board of Examination (BoE) has decided to declare marks on the results portal the day they are declared.

Earlier, students could only find out if they had passed or failed in an exam from the website and they had to rush to colleges to check the marks. On Thursday, Arjun Ghatule, the Acting Director, Board of Examinations and Evaluation, said from the next semester, students would be able to log on to the website of the university and see their marks in each subject immediately after they are declared.

Following the delay in declaring summer semester results this year, the BoE has brought in a host of reforms to avoid mistakes that had been made earlier.

Apart from improving infrastructure for evaluation, the BoE has finally prepared a master database of assessors, courses, examinations, subjects and credits and the linkages have been streamlined, said Ghatule. Last time, assessors had complained saying they could not log in or were tagged to wrong answersheets. Ghatule assured that the process had been smoothened. “We have already tested the system and the bugs have been fixed,” he said.

According to the database, around 14,000 teachers and principals would correct answerbooks in the winter examinations starting November 8. The varsity will conduct exams for 481 full-time programmes and 604 part-time ones. Over 4.1 lakh students are expected to write the exams. To address the evaluation process, 282 Central Assessment Process (CAP) centres have been set up.

“The answersheets will reach the CAP centres within three days of the examination and scanned by the fifth day. They will be checked and counted at three stages. There will be no issue of delay or misplacement as answersheets will be reconciled,” said Ghatule adding that fresh answerbooks with unique codes have been printed to avoid any mix-up. No supplementary answersheets would be provided to students.

Acting Vice-Chancellor Devanand Shinde said the entire process, from collection of papers to declaration of results, has been reformed to ensure that no delay is encountered. Apart from a one-day workshop on onscreen evaluation, assessors will have to go through a compulsory eight-minute video before they can start assessment.
