On Students’ Demand, Mumbai University Postpones Exams, New Dates Soon


Following a request from Mumbai University’s final-year students, the varsity has decided to conduct the fifth-semester exam after Diwali. Earlier the exams were slated to commence on October 15. Students from at least five city colleges wrote to MU, claiming that they did not have enough time and practice for a written test in the long-form pattern. They said they have taken online exams with multiple-choice questions for consecutive two years. Therefore, they need extra time to prepare for the final year exams which will be taken with subjective questions as well, reported Free Press Journal.

“The Board of Examination and Evaluation, in a meeting, has decided to postpone the semester V exams till after Diwali. The students will be informed of the new examination dates before Diwali ends,” a varsity official said.

Once the authorities share the examination schedule, students will be able to download it via the official website –
