6

The UGC on Thursday justified in the Supreme Court its decision directing all universities and institutions to hold final year or semester examinations in September saying it was done to protect the academic future of students across the country.Students are demanding cancellation of the exams as there are many students who won’t be able to sit for online exams because of various situations including the floods in Assam and Bihar.

It gives sufficient flexibility to universities/ institutions to conduct such examinations online, offline (pen and paper) or blended (online + offline) mode and provide for an examination through the special chance for students who “for whatsoever the reason(s) may be” are unable to appear for the examination conducted by a university/institution by end of September 2020, the UGC said.

It said that the Universities or Institutions may conduct such special examinations as and when feasible so that the students concerned are not put to any inconvenience or disadvantage.
