All Delhi state university exams including final yr cancelled:
All Delhi state university exams have been cancelled in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. “In light of the major disruptions caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, Delhi govt has decided to cancel all Delhi state university exams including final exams,” tweeted Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia. This will also include the Delhi University exams, which stand cancelled by the order of the government. There was a major demand to cancel the Delhi Technological University (DTU) exams.
These exams will also now be cancelled. Earlier DTU students told indiatvnews.com that the university notification they received regarding the date sheet of the upcoming exams was ‘not in accordance’ with the UGC guidelines which state the colleges need to directly promote the intermediate students if the COVID-19 situation worsens.
In Delhi Manish Sisodia there will be no state-prescribed mode of evaluation but the universities have been left to decide on a “progressive” system that doesn’t involve exams. The decision will impact universities such as Ambedkar University, Delhi Technological University, Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, Indira Gandhi Delhi Technical University For Women. The decision, however, will not be binding on central universities such as Delhi University (DU), Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI), etc.
University Grants Commission, UGC on Wednesday released the latest guidelines allowing the varsities to conduct exams across the country in September. However, the decision did not go well with many educationists and students who were demanding the cancellation of final year university exams due to the health risks it posed. On Thursday, teachers from DU, MU and JNU among others wrote to UGC Chairman regarding cancellation of exams and evaluation of students on previous performance. The letter was written by the former University Grants Commission chairman Sukhdeo Thorat and was signed by 27 professors from Delhi University, Jawaharlal Nehru University, University of Hyderabad, University of Mumbai, Tata Institute of Social Sciences and others.
