No relief from exams for Mumbai University IDOL’s first, second year students [Read Notice]

Mumbai: While the University Mumbai (MU) has promoted intermediate-year students without exams due to Covid-19 crisis, those studying at its Institute of Distance and Open Learning (IDOL) will have to take all their tests.

According to a notice issued on Saturday (September 12), 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.

“University Grants Commission (UGC) had permitted to promote intermediate students only under Credit-based Semester System. Since IDOL follows a yearly pattern of evaluation and not a semester-pattern, MU had decided to conduct all the exams of distance learning students,” said Vinod Malale, deputy registrar (public relations) at MU.

IDOL announced that the final exams of undergraduate courses will start from October 3, while those for post-graduation courses will begin on October 8. The first and second year exams for repeaters will be held from September, while those for freshers will be conducted in November – the institute is yet to announce the beginning date of these tests. The practical exams for IT, CS and MCA programmes will also he held online, starting from September 15. The institute hasn’t released the detailed time-table for these exams so far.

Each theory paper will be for one hour and carry 50 marks. IDOL will also provide a model question paper. A mock test will be conducted before the actual examination.

  2. 10 days for final year exam and still idol students have not received any question bank. How students are supposed to study? Do they really think students should read all those fat textbooks for just 25-30 questions?

  3. I have applied for TyBA 2020-2021 idol and would like to know if i would be appearing for the exams in oct 2020 ? or next year ? its so confusing !!!!

  4. I find this very strange that all this information is on this website & not the Mumbai University website. This information was announced on Sept 12th & exams will commence in October. Just 3 weeks notice is really not fair.

  5. I find this very strange that all this information is no this website & not the Mumbai University website. This information was announced on Sept 12th & exams will commence in October. Just 3 weeks notice is really not fair.

  6. University said question bank will be provided to students but now college authorities and professor said that guidelines have been changed so no question bank will be provided to you 🙄

    • Yeah..and we don’t have any idea about it too..that how the question paper pattern will be.Earlier we had the idea about the weightage in every unit but now we have to study the whole syllabus just for 20-30 questions which is quite difficult and confusing.

  7. We are confused about syllabus and on online lecture there are many problems to face sometime network issues we not clearly hear teacher voice pls don’t conduct exam on online basis

  8. We are just 3 weeks away from the date of Exams for Final B A and we are not clear about the process of online exams. Whether the candidates will appear from their homes or at an online centre is not clear. Wouldn’t it be difficult to supervise the candidates while they answer as they do on offline mode. These uncertainties makes candidates go on the edge
