<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The results mess at the University of Mumbai is far from over as at least 1,600 students, whose papers are ‘missing’, are still awaiting results nearly five months after exams. In several cases, the university itself has no clarity about when the results would be announced. While the university decided to allot average marks to students whose papers were logically or physically missing, it has still not released a list of all such students.One such student, Ameya Malshe — who is awaiting results for his second semester LLB exams – has written to the Vice Chancellor expressing the agony of thousands of students whose results are yet to be declared.”Five months after my exams, I am yet to get my result. The university has declared that it has misplaced some papers. But students are not being given any clarity about when they would get their results. Many of us are becoming suicidal after losing opportunities of higher education, jobs etc,” Malshe has written, adding, “If anything happens to any of these students, the university would be solely responsible.” Malshe has decided to fast at the University’s Kalina campus if results are not declared until Wednesday.Kunal Parmar, a final year student of Bachelor in Mass Media (BMM), said that he had to lose an entire year due to the university’s delay in declaring results. “I was planning to enrol into a masters programme. Despite several queries, the university is still not clarifying whether the paper is missing or there is some other issue,” says Parmar.Meanwhile, the University declared the revaluation results of some students on October 7; several students were shocked to see that they had scored a zero. “Several students, who had scored low in their exams, have now scored zero in the revaluation. This is shocking” said Sachin Pawar, president of the Student Law Council.
