Mumbai University have set a record of sorts by declaring the October TY B Com exam results within ten days. This minor miracle was made possible by a change in ‘methodology’; six centralised assessment of papers were set up at South Mumbai. Navi Mumbai and Thane. This had the effect of reducing the travel time of the evaluators who would previously travel to Kalina campus.

Just goes to show that more than technology itself, it is change effected in processes that has more of an impact.

The statutory requirement is that results are to be declared within 45 days of the exams.

This year’s March-April examinations were declared after 89 days ;the university was severely criticised for a lackadaisical attitude towards the students.

The number of CAP centres will be raised to 15 – 20 for next year’s March exam.

Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.
