Mumbai, Oct 11: The students of Mumbai University have decided to go on a hunger strike to protest against the misplaced results by the University of Mumbai. The varsity has been giving no clarity about the results date. Exam papers of at least 1,600 students are missing from the exams that were conducted five months ago.
The University declared revaluation results of several students on October 7. However, a lot of students were shocked to see that they were given a zero.
One of the students, Ameya Malshe, wrote a letter to the Vice-Chancellor that as they are not given any clarity about the result dates, and a lot of students have become suicidal because they are losing opportunities to get admission in higher education courses. He mentioned that he will also go on a hunger strike if the results are not announced until Wednesday, reported DNA.
The varsity has decided to give average marks to students who have their papers missing. But the decision didn’t go well with students as the University has misplaced more than one paper of several students and allotting average marks will reduce their overall score.
