Pune: There are murmurs that the results of nearly 300 students of third-year Bachelor of Commerce (B.Com) from Mumbai University have been held back. Sources from the varsity claimed that there are a few technical glitches due to which the results have been held back.
However, the university authorities have denied the allegations.
Vinod Malal, Public Relation Officer, University of Mumbai, while talking to Sakal Times said, “There are a total of 76,000 students who appeared for third year B.Com examination this year. The results were declared on July 8 and the mark sheets too have been issued to the students.”
“If ever the results of a few students have held back, it would have been purely due to individual cases. There might be cases in which the students may not have cleared the examinations or would have taken a provincial admission, or may have been absent for the examination,” he added.
Meanwhile, students from Kudal, Ratnagiri claimed that their results have been held back for no reasons. One of the students said, “I have a clear record and there are no backlogs, yet my result has been held back. I want to apply for further studies, but since I have not got my mark sheet, I am unable to apply to various universities outside the State.”
Another girl student said, “I have applied for a job and I have got selected also. But I have to submit my documents and the graduation mark sheet is one of the important documents which I need to provide during the joining. Now, I am in a fix as, despite several requests to the college, I am not getting any concrete reply regarding my query.”
Soham Ingle, a student, said, “I am disturbed as I have not got my results and my family members and relatives believe that I have failed the examination. Hence, I am giving excuses. I do not know why the result has been held back despite passing in all subjects, timely payment of fees and proper attendance.”
The sources from the varsity said that there are technical glitches. A member of the Centralised Assessment Procedure Committee said, “Actually, no one is at fault. As we have computerised assessment, sometimes, if the papers are not scanned properly or if the barcode number does not match with the software, the papers are rejected. Similarly, few students have a five-digit seat number while few have six digits seat numbers. Because of that too, the problem arises.”
