Over 75,000 answer scripts of third year B.Com students are still to be assessed. This despite the exams ending on April 27.
The university rule states that the results of any course should be declared 30 to 45 days after the exams conclude.
“We appointed 1,450 teachers for assessment. But only 850 of them reported to the examination house,” said professor Vilas Shinde, controller of examinations. University officials said the absenteeism might force them to take action against them.
The T.Y.B.Com examination is the largest examination of the university. University authorities said teachers who were put on census duty requested the BMC to spare them. But they still didn’t turn up. “They will have to take lectures and also come for assessments,” said the official.
“All my teachers diligently participated in the assessment. They were given relieving letters. If the university felt they had not completed their work, they shouldn’t have given relieving letters,” said Sunil Mantri, principal of NM College.
Even for the B.Sc (computer science and Information Technology) assessments only a handful of college teachers turned up.
“The declaration of the B.Sc result is getting delayed. Computer science students may have to wait a bit longer,” added Shinde.
