Just got an update from our sources:
Students securing 14, 15, 16 and 17 marks in Financial Management exam of November 2013 will get 24 marks.
No statutory gracing is applied. So students scoring 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 marks will have to appear for re-exams.
Grade cards are expected in few days.
Revaluation results for other subjects will take more time and may come in a week’s time.
From tomorrow ATKT exams are starting, so students should appear for other subjects too if failed.
What we feel:
there is no university circular stating anything related to the grace marks, hence, students are advised to appear for the respective ATKT exams if they have scored 9,10,11,12, 13 marks. Others who have got 14 marks and above, please follow what your college instructs you to do. We shall update here if university publishes any circular.
This news is very frustrating as students were misguided by TOI article published few days back which read:
Final-year students of Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS) have heaved a sigh of relief after Mumbai University increased the internal grace marks. Moreover, students who have merely failed in financial management will be granted the benefit of two types of grace marks-statutory grace marks and internal grace marks. Besides, the results of revaluation will be out in a day or two, said controller of examinations Padma Deshmukh.
The rule of applying two kinds of grace marks will be allowed to all those with a minimum score of 9 and they will automatically clear the subject. Explaining the criteria for statutory grace marks, dean T P Madhu Nair said that if a student had failed only in one subject, 1% of the aggregate score or 5 marks, whichever was lower, could be awarded to students. Additionally, 10 marks of internal grace score will also be granted.
For instance, if a student has scored 11, 5 marks under the statutory gracing rule and 10 marks as internal grace score will be added, thus taking the overall score in financial management to 26. “I have written to the vice-chancellor to grant one more provision to students. I have stated that if students take a re-exam, the higher score of either attempt must be considered in the result,” said Nair.
A great lesson learned indeed that University can screw BMS students’ life at any point of time.
