Commerce students might get their results sooner because the Mumbai University has set up six additional correction centres in colleges for teachers to come in and correct papers.

More than 75,000 answer sheets are yet to be evaluated, though over 49 days have lapsed since the TYBCom exams concluded on April 27. According to the Maharashtra Universities Act, 1994, results need to be published within 30-45 days from the concluding date of examination.

Usually, teachers go to the Kalina campus of the university for corrections. The university follows a central assessment programme (CAP), but has decided to open these cluster centres in addition to the Kalina centre. With colleges having begun, it will be convenient for teachers to go to centres near their colleges instead of Kalina.

“To ensure the results are not further delayed, a proposal was sent to the acting vice chancellor to allow extension of evaluation to cluster CAP centres at the affiliated colleges of the university for third year B.Com. The approval was given on Monday,” said Vilas Shinde, controller of examinations, Mumbai university.

The six colleges are in different parts of the city. They are Birla College (Kalyan), KJ Somaiya College of Commerce & Science (Vidyavihar), Hinduja College (Charni road), RD National College (Bandra), Nagindas Khandwala College (Malad) and CKT College of Commerce (Panvel).

“There’s possibility of opening one more centre in Thane, if required. We have explained the procedure to colleges Work will begin from Wednesday. We have requested them to finish evaluation in next 10 days,” he said.
