Mumbai: Bombay High Court saw a plea moved by a law student seeking uniformity in examination patterns and timely declaration of results by Maharashtra universities. The plea is to be heard tomorrow before a bench of Justices Milind Jadhav and Abhay Ahuja.

Balusha Bhasal, a first-year law student, co-filed the petition with a social worker who had been approached by 10 other students with the same concerns.

The plea was raised as different universities were conducting their individual exams with different patterns and schedules, making it difficult for the students.

The petitioners pointed out that this two-day gap between the examinations prolonged the schedule and made things worse for those students who wished to study abroad. There was also an acute lack of uniformity as the universities followed their own timetables.

The plea highlighted the unfairness competing students would face if MCQ-based examination and descriptive type of examination were placed on the same footing.

The petitioners prayed for a uniform pattern of examination as well as the uniform pattern of the academic calendars across the State.

As part of the petition, directions were sought to ensure that the results are published within the shortest possible time so that deadlines entailed in international universities' academic calendars are not missed.
