Students have again complained of discrepancies in a university exam paper. Students appearing for the fourth semester LLB exam in taxation law, on Tuesday, claimed that the Maharashtra Value Added Tax section, which is given as worth 15 marks in the syllabus, was assigned 46 marks in the paper.
“This is very serious issue and concerns the future of several students,” said one exam candidate. “Apart from causing stress in the short term, it could also play havoc with students’ careers who will probably end up failing or not secure satisfactory marks.”
This exam season has seen a series of goof-ups with erroneous question papers, delayed exams and shortage of supervisors thanks to, for the most part, the ongoing teachers’ boycott.
Mumbai University pro vice chancellor Naresh Chandra said he would have to check with the LLB board of studies head. “If there is a problem it will be seriously looked into,” he said.
