Earlier, first-year students of MU urged the varsity to defer their exams, which is scheduled to be held from November 22. As per students, the academic session started two months late and colleges have to ensure 90 days of formal lectures are held before taking the exam. The autonomous colleges of Mumbai University, however, had scheduled their end-semester exams in or after December.
The first-year students had been protesting after final-year students of the varsity decided to conduct the fifth-semester exam after Diwali. Earlier the exams were slated to commence on October 15. Several students claimed 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. The varsity had later accepted their request.
