Mumbai: Results of TYBCom (Financial Markets), TYBCom (Banking and Insurance) and TYBMM examinations held in April 2018 were declared on Thursday, after a month’s delay. According to the Public Universities Act, results should be declared within 45 working days of the exam — they should have been out in mid-June — but have just been announced.
A Bachelor’s of Mass Media (Advertisement) student Monica Rayal, 21, told The Free Press Journal, “Firstly, as the result has been declared one month late, my heart was filled with fear.
As it is, the University of Mumbai had given three of my classmates and me a ‘KT’ (keep term) in one subject. A revaluation showed all four of us had passed — where I had got 19/75, after revaluation, I got 56/75.”
Rayal also said, “As revaluation results were declared online, we haven’t yet received our marksheet, which prevented me from applying for a job, as the University of Mumbai unnecessarily gave me a ‘KT’ in Semester 5 and due to the delay in Semester 6 results.”
Students also complained though some of them did not receive any KT in all the five semesters, the website said, “Lower examination not cleared”, due to which although they had cleared Semester 6 examinations their grade isn’t visible in the pdf of the result uploaded on the university website.
Meanwhile, of the 4,796 students appearing for TYBMM examinations, 1,092 students have failed, while 69.31 per cent have passed, with 24 students getting ‘O’, 829 students getting ‘A’, 1,035 getting ‘B’, 976 getting ‘C’ and 434 getting ‘D’ grades respectively.
