In June 2014, when four final year BTech students from the Thadomal Shahani College of Engineering got their marksheets, they were in for a shock. Be the change. Accept the challenge. When four Mumbai University students did this, it made a difference to the lives of 1.5 lakh students in over 800 colleges. And forever changed the way University’s most crucial and controversial department –examination house– functions. In June 2014, when four final year BTech students from the Thadomal Shahani College of Engineering got their marksheets, they were in for a shock. Hirak Modi, Marmik Pandya, Girish Prabhu and Dev Mehta (from computer science and IT streams) realised that the marks in one paper were much less than what they expected. The photocopy of the answersheets proved they deserved better. The foursome decided to approach the exam house of the university.As with most students, they, too, had to do several rounds. “We used to wait from morning till late evening to get an audience with the Controller of Exams. After a month and a half, we met him,” Hirak told dna.The wait was worth it. Controller Dinesh Bhonde was convinced that the boys had a point. “He then sought to know about us and our future plans and asked if we could help him in streamlining the system,”Marmik said.
