Faculties Letter to UGC regarding cancellation of Exam:
“The UGC’s latest advisory on examinations is unfortunate because it takes us backward rather than forward. It effectively extends the period for holding of exams (for final year/semester cohorts) until September, the second such postponement. And it creates fresh uncertainty for states that had already decided to cancel exams,” the letter addressed to UGC Chairman D P Singh reads.
It further added “The recommendation to cancel exams was prompted by an unprecedented health emergency, not by doubts about the value of examinations. When faced with such an emergency, canceling exams has two main advantages: First, it avoids the extended uncertainty created by repeated (but unavoidable) postponements. Second, it protects the integrity of the examination by refusing to abandon its two most basic features – impartiality, or equal treatment of all examinees; and close supervision to prevent cheating”.
Signatories besides Thorat:
In Addition to Sukhdeo Thorat, some other signatories are Professors Apooravanand, Madhulika Banerjee, Satish Deshpande, Sunil Kumar, Shobhit Mahajan, Rajni Palriwala, Ujjwal Kumar Singh, N Sukumar and Nandini Sundar from DU, and Professor Ayesha Kidwai from JNU, along with others from other universities of the country.
