However, the university hasn’t specified the quantum of these marks or which students would be eligible for them.
The Cell has replaced the manual attendance-marking and verification system with a barcode and webcam-based verification to minimise physical interaction between students and invigilators. The entry time for candidates has been staggered to avoid crowding at the centres, which will be filled only half of their capacity.
The aspirants can download their admit cards from https://mhtcet2020.mahaonline.gov.in by logging in their accounts, according to a notice issued by the Cell on Friday. The admit cards will have details of students’ examination centre, reporting time and date of the test. The candidates will also be required to submit an ‘unconditional undertaking’.
With many University of Mumbai (MU) final year students still confused about their impending examinations, and colleges refusing to provide any clarity, the university has issued a fresh set of guidelines directing colleges to help students.
According to UGC’s latest ‘suggested’ academic calendar for the first year of undergraduate and postgraduate courses for 2020-21, the admission process for the fresh batch of college students is to be completed by October 31, with the classes commencing from November 1. The seamster exams for the year are scheduled in the months of March and August.
The revised dates for the test along with other higher education CETs were announced by the state CET Cell through a notice on September 21. However, the Cell didn’t release the schedule for the 3-year LLB and BEd and BEd (ELCT) entrance tests, saying that it will be announced through a separate notice.
On September 9, YCMOU released a circular announcing the mode and schedule of the final year exams. While the university announced the start and end dates of the theory exams, it is yet to reveal the detailed time-table and the format of online tests.
On Sunday (September 13), MU released another circular related to the final year exams to colleges and students. The circular has detailed guidelines about setting the MCQ-based theory papers for final year exams.
IDOL will hold the final year exams, for both fresh and repeat students, in October, alongside the final year exams of regular MU students. However, the institute will also conduct first and second year tests, which will start in September for repeaters and in November for freshers. All these exams will be held online in Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) format.
The practical exams for the final year students will be held from September 15 to 25 and the theory papers will be conducted between October 5 and 15. The backlog papers of these students will be held between September 25 to October 4.
