Many students are running
around to get hall tickets, with an TYBCom paper scheduled on
Wednesday. With hard copies of the hall tickets reaching many colleges only on
Monday, some told students to collect them the same day, while others plan to
distribute them on Tuesday. Around 85,000 students will appear for the final
year exams from Wednesday.
Mumbai University for the first time made
hall tickets available online but many could not access them on Sunday and were
forced to rely on hard copies. The delay was due to the visit of the review
committee of the National Accreditation and Assessment Council, which kept officials
busy, and online submission of the examination form, for which hall tickets had
to be submitted online, officials claimed.
A Jai Hind College
student, who has the financial accounts paper on Wednesday and got his hall
ticket on Monday, said, "We were called to college to collect the hall
tickets at 9am. But we got them only by 11am. Two days before the exam, I would
have preferred to stay at home and revise the syllabus."
Another student who got the ticket at 4 pm on Monday, said, "I had to travel
for one hour to reach college. I will have to check my name at the exam centre
on Tuesday or will have to reach early on Wednesday. It is a waste of time. We
could not access the tickets online. Even if we get them online, we have to get
the college principal's signature."
Students who went to a college in South Mumbai
at 9am were turned away. "They were told to return at 4pm as the
university had not delivered them in the morning," said a college
official. A college in Charni Road told its
students to come for the tickets on Tuesday.
Madhu Nair, dean, faculty of commerce, said, "Most colleges received hard
copies around 11.30am on Monday." The exam will commence on March 21, he
said. A varsity official said the server could have been slow as many logged on
at the same time.
