The Shivaji University, Kolhapur (SUK) is set to announce its summer engineering exam results by June 15. The university's controller of examinations (CoE) Mahesh Kakade said that as many as 150 exam results have been drawn as of May third week. He added that the number is likely to reach up to 400 by June first week.
"This year's summer examination was advanced by at least a month. As a result of this, the assessment is being fast-tracked. We started announcing results from April, for which we set up around 20 central assessment program (CAP) centres across the Sangli, Satara and Kolhapur districts," he said. He added that the results drawn include under-graduate as well as post-graduate courses for arts, commerce and science streams. The engineering exam assessment is currently underway at seven CAP centres across the three districts.
"With the current pace, we are likely to announce the engineering results by June 15. We will announce the results of other subjects by June first week. There were over 500 exams held from March this year," he said. he CoE added that the the same pattern as last year was continued this semester.
"There were two CAP centres at Kolhapur, Sangli and Satara according to each stream. This helped a lot this year. Earlier faculty members from Satara and Sangli would have to reach Kolhapur for the assessment which deterred them from coming forward for the work."

Exam department officials said that the department had earlier planned to wrap up the engineering exam by April end and to draw the results by May. However, due to various unprecedented events, the department had to extend the final date, resulting in a delay in the assessment process and therefore the result. Kakade added that the exam department had targeted completing the exam this year within 42 days unlike the earlier 56-day period.
