A day after governor of Ch Vidyasagar Rao, who is the chancellor of the University of Mumbai (MU), met the vice-chancellor and asked MU to speed up its correction of last semester’s answer papers, the pace of assessment has picked up.

On Wednesday, more teachers reported for assessment work and MU officials said the number of answer papers assessed had increased compared to last few days.

“If all goes well, the results of some courses should be announced within 15 days,” said an official.

“Our monitoring office shows more teachers registered for assessment on Wednesday, which is a welcome move. We aim to stick to July 31 deadline and start announcing results as soon as possible,” said M A Khan, MU registrar. He said that in accordance with the governor’s request, a war room had been set up at MU’s examination house at the Kalina campus, which will issue daily updates.

The governor met Deshmukh, the controller of examination and other senior education officials from the state, seeking an update on the status of results. MU has passed the 45-day deadline by which results are to be announced. Those who appeared for exams held in March and April are yet to receive results.
