Students relieved after Mumbai University revises law exam dates
Students of the Master of Laws (LLM), who were worried about two papers of the first and second semester exams being scheduled on the same day are now relieved after the University of Mumbai revised their time table for the upcoming exams.
All subjects of semester 1 for all six groups will now be held on June 4 as opposed to the original date of May 23.
According to the initial examination timetable, paper 1 for all the six groups of LLM students had been scheduled at the same time as paper 4 for semester 2.
The first semester exam is a re-exam for students, who had failed during the last evaluation cycle.
The second semester exam, however, is part of the regular end-semester examinations.
“We got complaints from a few students and notices too. We rectified it as soon as we realised that there had been a slight glitch,” said Vinod Malale, public relations officer, MU.
Last year, delay in announcement of results had pushed the commencement of several courses by a couple of months leaving students with very little time to prepare for their exams that were scheduled for December.
Due to a crunch in preparation time, several students had skipped the first year examinations, after the Bombay high court allowed them to do so.
About 660 students were enrolled for the first-year LLM courses and many of these students will now take both the examinations in the current semester cycle.
The University has made such mistakes in the past, too.
In March, they had issued a timetable for commerce examinations that overlapped with chartered accountancy (CA) examinations scheduled for April.
Similarly, schedule for the Bachelors in Mass Media (BMM) examinations had to be changed after their ATKT and current semester exams were scheduled for the same day.
