The University of Mumbai (MU) on Friday evening announced that the TYBCom results will be delayed by two weeks. The delay is owing to some pending assessment work for a couple of subjects, the Controller of Examination (COE) at MU told HT, adding that the results will now be declared on June 24.
“The aim was to finish assessment of papers and announce the results. However, some answer sheets are yet to be assessed. Instead of hurrying the moderators to finish their work, we chose to give them more time and postpone the declaration of results by some days,” said Deepak Wasave, COE, MU. He said that three subjects, including the Financial Management papers, are yet to be assessed.
MU officials also said the delay was due to the process of incorporating the marks of semester V for students who got their papers reassessed.
Students were worried on Friday when they could not access the TYBCom results on the website. “We kept checking the website all through the day, only to find out through messages on social media that the result declaration has been postponed. The university website was inaccessible until Friday evening,” said Anjali Choudhury, a TYBCom student.
While the delay in declaring the result is worrying students, college principals said this should not affect their future prospects. “Most of the post-graduate programmes start only in August. So long as the university manages to declare results before June- end, students have nothing to worry about,” said Indu Shahani, principal of HR College, Churchgate.
The results of final-year bachelors in mass media (BMM) students were announced on Thursday evening and the TYBSc results for semester V students were announced on Friday evening. “We will try and announce the TYBSc semester VI results in a day or two. Almost all other courses’ results should be declared soon enough,” said Wasave.
