Even as students from the University of Mumbai’s (MU) law department are still awaiting results for the previous semester exams, an error in the marksheet of the tests held in May 2017 has kept everyone confused. Many law colleges recently handed over the marksheets for the May 2017 exams in which all students have been marked “passed with exemption”.

After receiving complaints from many law students, the MU has assured all students that their marksheets will be reissued within a week.

“Our results for the eighth semester were declared in August-September last year, but the marksheets came to colleges only now. Once we received the marksheet we realised that there was a very clear remark stating we “passed with exemption” in the previous semester, which makes no sense,” said a student, on condition of anonymity. He added that according to information on the marksheet, “exemption” is a remark awarded to students who fail subjects in the previous semester, which is not the case with this particular student.

On Wednesday, several students had gathered at the examination house of the university to get clarity on the issue. “We were told that it is an error in the marksheet and that fresh marksheets will be issued within a week. Every student in my college has the same remark on their marksheets so it looks like the university will reissue new ones to all law students,” said another student.

Officials at the university were not aware of these complaints on Thursday. “Such remarks don’t come in the marksheet, so we will look into the matter and find the error at the earliest,” said Vinod Malale, deputy registrar (public relations), examinations department, MU.
