Raising the issue, Yuva Sena member Pradeep Sawant pointed out that the paper for storage network management and retrieval (SNMR) for semester VIII IT students, which was held on May 14, had questions from the old syllabus.
Students therefore risked losing their final year if they failed, Sawant said.
Sawant wrote to Mumbai University vice chancellor demanding that students be given the full 30 marks for questions from the old syllabus, and that an inquiry be conducted in the matter.
The Yuva Sena has also called for a protest on the issue on May 25.
A varsity spokesperson said the students’ grievances had been sent to the concerned subject chairperson for a review, after which a decision would be taken on the further course of action.
Sawant pointed out that last year, in a similar situation, the question paper for Data Mining and Business Intelligence (DMBI), for semester VI, had questions outside of the prescribed syllabus, and the university had given 20 grace marks in that instance.
