Mumbai University April 2019 exams to be rescheduled due to general elections

March 12, 2019

The election season is going to affect the April exam schedule of the Mumbai University. The exam date of one of the papers for TYBCom is likely to clash with a poll date in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, most others, like TYBA, TYBSc and second-year college exams, will have to be postponed on at least five days. The delays in the exams will impact the vacations and an early declaration of results.


The elections are scheduled on April 29 in Mumbai Metropolitan Region and on April 23 in Raigad and Sindhudurg. Since Mumbai University and many colleges are also used as polling booths these have to be kept free a day before and a day after polling for preparation. 


Hence, University exams falling on April 22, 24 and 30 may have to be postponed as well (April 28 is a Sunday). Some centres will also be used on counting day - May 23. Also, teachers are called on poll duty, severely straining the test administering apparatus.


The dates for most of the courses, except engineering, have been already released. The detailed time-table was kept on hold for many papers.


"The TYBCom exam ends on April 22. The last exam on an applied component paper may have to be rescheduled," said a university official. 


Some TYBA and TYBSc exams, starting in the second week of April, will have to be rescheduled. Most second year exams for BSc, B Com, BA and other self-financed courses too will start after April 15.


Many parents are already concerned about the NIOS board exams, as rescheduling the exam will delay the result and will affect their admissions.
