Mumbai University: students scoring less than 45% eligible for admissions to PG courses
The students scoring less than 45% marks in their HSE (Higher secondary education) will now be eligible to apply for all undergraduate and postgraduate programmes offered by the Mumbai University from the upcoming academic session (i.e.2017-18). The declaration for the same has been made by the University. The admissions for this year have already closed.
Up until now, the minimum percentage required for obtaining admission in Post Graduate courses was 40% for reserved categories (SC, ST and OBC) and 45% for General category.
The decision was taken by university academic council on August 31, 2015. Meanwhile, similar norms have been introduced for the degree courses. The students who have passed the higher secondary education can apply for undergraduate self-financing courses such as BMS, BAF, BSc-IT, for which the criteria was 45% earlier.
According to the Vice chancellor Sanjay Deshmukh, Mumbai University is the only University that has taken up this decision to ensure that everyone can enroll for higher education.
