An official from the state’s CET cell said, “There is no point in extending dates arbitrarily. We will decide before July 15 if we have to extend the deadline. While other universities may declare results by then, we are not sure how long Mumbai University will take to announce results.” On the other side students are worried about losing whole semester like last.

Commenting on this a student said, “Law admissions went on till November 12, giving only about six months to study. If we do not get our undergraduate results, we will not be eligible for admissions. If they decide to start the process without our results, we won’t get a seat of our choice.” In the absence of final year results aspirants from Mumbai University affiliated colleges are unable to complete their application, as students required to enter their final year marks in application form.
