MUMBAI: The university’s third-year BCom semester V results were declared on Thursday, after a delay of 24 days. The exams got over on November 28 last year and the results were supposed to have been declared within 45 days. Of the 64,010 students who appeared for the exams, 65.28% cleared them, a rate similar to the 2013 exams.
This year, the university brought down the weightage given to internal exams from 40 to 25. So, instead of the 60-40 evaluation pattern under the credit-based grading system, the university followed a 75-25 pattern. The change hasn’t affected the pass rate.
Of the candidates, just over 5% got the highest grade, O. The largest proportion of the batch, around 20%, got A grade. A few results have been withheld as the colleges did not send internal assessment marks to the university on time, said examination controller Dinesh Bhonde.
Dean of commerce Madhu Nair cited elections as one of the main reasons for the delay in declaring the results. “(Also) assessment and moderation had to be done along with lectures.”
TYBSc and TYBA results are yet to be declared by the university. “The answer sheets for a couple of TYBSc subjects are yet to be evaluated. Some of the TYBA papers had been rescheduled to January, so results will take some time to be declared,” said Bhonde.
