Third year chemical engineering students at the Datta Meghe College of Engineering (Navi Mumbai, have written a letter to Mumbai University saying that one of their elective paper was “invalid”. They claimed that the semester VI elective paper — Numerical Methods — had many problems.
“Nearly 80 per cent of the questions in the paper were either out of syllabus, or they were not mentioned in the prescribed reference books,” claimed a student.
Further, the paper had only six questions as against the prescribed norm of seven.
“Besides, the questions were also supposed to have sub-questions. Even that was missing,” said another student.
The students wrote a letter to the head of the department and subject expert of their college, who verified the question paper and sent an application to the university.
In response to the written complaint, the university has written back stating that the question paper stands valid.
