Mumbai University’s law understudies can no more utilize blue ink to compose their papers. Presently undergrad law understudies of the BLS LLB course can just compose their exams in torpedo pen. No blue ball pens, no wellspring pens and unquestionably no pens of any an alternate color at all.
What’s more regrettable, this tenet was found in fine print just upon the arrival of the exam, with no former suggestion. What’s more the reason? Utilizing a blue ball pen can ‘uncover your personality’ and thus be viewed as ‘duping’. At any rate as per the University of Mumbai.
For the most part there are tenets and regulations given on the posterior of the first leaf of the answer booklet. The new ball pen guideline had been embedded in here, yet with no former cautioning. As indicated by law understudy Shonottra Kumar, who took her exam from the Pravin Gandhi College of Law, this is exceptionally uncalled for since three hours is not sufficient time to complete the paper itself, so few individuals read the directions previously.
“After I began composing my paper with a blue pen, an affirmation was made that we couldn’t compose with blue pens and the understudies were required to compose with dark pens just”, says Kumar. So not just did the University not want to expose the new lead in advance, the invigilators excessively did not try to advertise it before the exam started, leaving a considerable measure of understudies indeterminate about their papers.
Luckily, the invigilators at Kumar’s focal point had their papers marked and confirmed by the invigilators despite the fact that most applicants wrote in blue ink.
Understudies at different focuses were not all that fortunate, asserts Kumar.
“Most different focuses were not educated. They composed their papers in blue ink. They had no confirmation or any such other thing,” she states.
Given this unforeseen development, a great deal of understudies are currently stressed whether their answer sheets would be viewed as true blue by the University of Mumbai.
Kumar likewise finds the new lead ‘doltish’. “On the off chance that they truly need to make new leads they ought to take care of the paper redressing strategies”, she says irately.
Understudies from other law universities additionally communicated their anguish with the new run the show.
“My middle was PES Law College, Dadar. I was not educated about the new leads, specifically about the principle making composition the examination with dark ink required. As an issue, I have composed my examination in blue ink. The college as opposed to forcing limitations on the ink utilized, ought to concentrate on other compelling measures to check bamboozling and different practices pervasive in examination corridors,” says Shrey Fatterpekar, a fifth year understudy of the BLS course at Rizvi Law College.
“My inside this time was Rizvi Law school, and not a solitary educator or invigilator educated us of this new administer of utilizing just debase pens for writing in our answer sheets. It’s well realized that we should use torpedo pens for filling in our scanner tag however till a year ago we were permitted to utilize blue or dark colored pens, not being educated overall the vast majority of us kept on uing blue pens. I don’t perceive how writing in blue pens hued pens would uncover an understudy’s personality, the individuals who really would need to uncover their character to the examination mediator would likely turn to different routines too,” agrees Ishita Shah, a fourth year understudy at Pravin Gandhi College.
Umaang Trivedi of the same school has a far more atrocious story. He excessively raises the issue of an absence of earlier notice. “My middle was Nalanda College and they appear to be exceptionally disordered. The inquiry papers were given 45 mins late. Also there is no real way to illuminate any questions in the inquiry paper. Further there was no such report about utilization of dark ink pen just. Aribitarily publishing such a standard isn’t right and additionally there was no fitting annoucement made which will tell the understudies. The ink doesnot matter however there ought to be a fitting notice about it to understudies and well before hand rather a prior day the exam,” says Trivedi.
Authorities from the Law Department of Mumbai University couldn’t be arrived at for input.
It is likely that the new administer may not be executed by Mumbai University in this occasion. Anyway the absence of correspondence and also the nonattendance of solid rationale has left numerous understudies astringent and on edge. Clearly Mumbai University needs to respond in due order regarding this most recent goof-up.
