Maharashtra CM Statement about Cancellation of Professional Exams:
In a letter addressed to PM Modi, Thackeray informed that the examinations have been cancelled on the directions of the State Disaster Management Authority. The students, however, will be given an option to appear for the exam later on when it is “feasible” to be held. The degrees would be awarded on the basis of a formula to be decided by various universities though students have been given the option of appearing for the examinations whenever it is feasible.
“Conducting examination amidst existing pandemic may prove to be an erroneous task for the district/municipal administration, examining authorities, transport authorities, besides students and parents,” Thackeray wrote in his letter.
Thackeray urged Modi to instruct all these Apex bodies to endorse the decision of the state government regarding the cancellation of Final Year/Semester examinations of these professional courses and issue necessary guidelines to the universities.
Some bodies already have issued directions. The University Grants Commission, or UGC, had set guidelines on exams, admissions and the academic year in May and they were endorsed by the AICTE. The Bar Council of India, too, has released guidelines, cancelling exams for most students. Then, this week, the UGC was asked to “revisit” those guidelines.
Maharashtra Government, so far, has not taken any decision on medical examinations in the state. Currently, there are over 63,000 active cases in Maharashtra. Major cities like Mumbai, Thane, Pune, Nagpur and Nashik have registered a significant increase in COVID-19 cases.
