UGC likely to issue revised guidelines on semester exams today. UP government has said that they will issue their university exam guidelines on July 2nd based on UGC guidelines expected to be issued on July 1st. The University Grants Commission (UGC) is likely to come up with revised guidelines for final-semester and final-year examinations for the universities today. Students across the country have been appealing to the UGC and the Ministry of Human Resource Development to cancel their examinations with COVID-19 cases constantly rising in the country. It is expected that in its fresh guidelines UGC will advise universities to scrap the final year examinations due to the pandemic.
The Union HRD Minister, Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ had hinted at this last week tweeting: “I have advised the @ugc_india to revisit the guidelines issued earlier for intermediate and Terminal Semester examinations and academic calendar. The foundation for revisited guidelines shall be health and safety students, teachers and staff.”
MHRD had formed another committee to give a revised set of guidelines based on the current COVID-19 situation. Moreover, AICTE Chairman Anil Sahasrabuddhe had reportedly said last week that revised guidelines will be released keeping in mind the COVID-19 situation in various states. He also said that these guidelines will be made after consulting various professional bodies like AICTE, Bar Council of India, Architecture Council, Pharmacy Council, among others.
A decision to scrap the final year exam has already been reached by the UGC committee and a formal notice for the same will be issued soon. It should be noted that the information has not yet been confirmed independently and students should wait for an official announcement.
At least four states – Maharashtra, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, and Haryana – have taken a decision to cancel the university and college exams in their state including the final year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Students have flooded the social media requesting the government to cancel all the exams or to postpone them.
