The University of Mumbai and its prestige is merely a farce. The following experience of mine might elaborate the statement.
My 7th semester (Engineering) results came on 23rd of February 2007 and to my surprise, I couldn't succeed to clear one of the subjects. As per the university norms, I applied for the photocopy of the answer sheet on 28th of February 2007. It took 45 days (they promise 21 days) for the university to take the photocopy of my answer sheet and send it back to me! The frustration doesn't end here.
Since I was not satisfied with the assessment, I applied for revaluation on 17th April 2007. Today is 12th of July and the university has proved that they are incapable of producing the reevaluated answer sheet even after a period of 86 days (they promise 45 days in the form). That too after levying a charge of Rs.500 for it. I have now re-appeared for this paper and had to do it amidst my 8th semester exams. What kind of administration takes more than two and a half months to make sure that their students are paid fair attention?
I am still waiting for my reevaluated result after taking my ATKT
examination. Now if I clear this subject after revaluation as per my expectations, then why did the university force me through this extra practice for the subject?
I'd like to state here that I have never failed to clear any subject so far, in my many years of education (my aggregate always being above75%) and therefore, this one episode is a black spot marring my spotless record.
Further, It is going to affect my opportunities and studies. Even if we believe the university side that I have flunked in the subject, we cannot justify the delay in the report delivery. They say justice delayed is justice denied. In my case I have been denied justice.
