Mumbai: Students appearing for final year Bachelor of Law (LLB) winter semester examination filed a written complaint to the Vice-Chancellor (VC) of Mumbai University (MU) on Wednesday for errors in question papers. Incorrect questions were printed twice in the Marathi language paper and these questions were rectified at the last minute when students had already attempted them.
Students complained Incorrect questions were printed in Industrial/ Organisational Solutions (IOS) and Civil Procedure Court (CPC) subject question papers. These questions were rectified at 1 pm when the examination time is scheduled from 10:30 to 1:30 pm. Students revealed by this time they had already answered these questions and did not have sufficient time to write a new one. Students wrote a written complaint to VC of MU highlighting these errors.
Sachin Pawar, President of Student law Council, said, “If there is a printing error then it should be rectified at the start of the examination. As the error was rectified late, we demand the VC to provide compensation of these marks to the students who attempted the question. We complained because the error was repeated twice and it creates inconvenience to students.” Despite the complaint, the university has not replied to these complaints.
Vinod Malale, deputy registrar of examination department, said, “Errors in question papers are rectified immediately by the supervisors and students are notified about the same. We will check the complaint filed and respond accordingly.” Large number of students reached late for their examination due to the bus strike and had to face inconvenience.
Archana Kamble, a student said, “First of all, we reached our examination centres after 20 minutes as there were no buses. And then the question was incorrect, the university should consider the situation and allot marks it was not our fault.”
