The university's counsel Rui Rodrigues told a bench of justices Anoop V Mohta and Bharati Dangre that all the teachers of the university are working round the clock in order to declare the results by August 31.
All the possible efforts are being made by the Mumbai University to complete the assessment of the papers.
The university assured the Bombay High Court that it is making all the efforts to declare the results of the undergraduate courses on time.
Statements from the university
- "We are trying our best to ensure that the results for all regular Bachelor of Arts, Sciences, and Commerce courses are declared by August 31." The University should also declare the results for the final semester of three and five year courses by August 31.
- Advocate Rodrigues said "the varsity has also had set up a "special help desk" to assist those students who wished to apply to foreign universities for higher studies, but were facing difficulties due to absence of their undergraduate mark sheets".
- "Three professors and the press relations officer from the university are helping students who wish to apply for higher studies. In such cases where the deadlines are imminent, the help-desk is ensuring that the papers of these students are immediately assessed, and the final marksheet printed," Advocate Rodrigues added
Earlier, HT reported, "Even after the results are uploaded on the website, some of the students may not be able to access their results. This is because, according to a varsity official, a few results are not ready yet".
So far, the university has declared the results of 374 exams out of 47 examinations conducted in the first half of the year.
