Mumbai University has provided question paper pattern and some instructions for students.
The university-quota admissions will be conducted online on the university portal admissionmsc.mu.ac.in
A number of students couldn’t take the online mock test for the first and second year exams on Friday (November 20), as they didn’t receive their login credentials from the university.
The University of Mumbai (MU) has issued a detailed circular providing instructions to colleges about the winter semester exams for the academic year 2020-21.
Last year, MU’s distance learning admissions were delayed by a month as it didn’t have UGC’s recognition.
The state has also allowed skill and entrepreneurial training at Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) and other centres as well as re-opening of all libraries.
Exams at all the engineering, MCA and pharmacy colleges as well as most of the law colleges that were slated on Monday have been deferred.
The student organisations have alleged that the software company wasn’t adequately prepared for the online tests at the university’s Institute of Distance and Open Learning. They also claimed that the company, which has offices in Singapore and Chennai, was hired without any research.
The University may divide the final year and backlog students at its Institute of Distance Learning (IDOL) in small batches, organise them through WhatsApp groups and conduct their tests in separate time slots. The University is also planning to outsource some of the tests to its affiliated colleges.
As they anxiously struggled to access their online test papers, distance learning students at the University of Mumbai (MU) faced another frustrating issue: lack of timely communication from the varsity. The university’s helpline numbers, email addresses, website and its contact centres were of little help, the students complained.
