The University of Mumbai began the October session of the final-year commerce students (TY BCom) on Friday, which is meant for those who either failed the exam in March or missed taking it.
But the revaluation results for the course are not yet out. So, students who hoped to clear the exam after revaluation were forced to take it again.
“I am sure I would have cleared the exam once the revaluation result was out. But now that the results are not out, I am forced to take the exam. I even have a job and it is really tough to take time off to study again for the exam,” said Amar Jariwala, who had failed the economics paper. Close to 80,000 candidates took the TYBCom exam in March and about 64 per cent of them passed.
This year the revaluation process was delayed because the third-year Commerce results were delayed by three months. “Close to 40 per cent of the revaluation requests came in late so the results could not be declared on time,’’ explained Vilas Shinde, controller of examinations.
