JFME’s Online Petition:
According to the reports an online petition has been launched by Joint Forum for Movement on Education (JFME) asking for the cancellation of final year examinations across all universities. The students are quite unhappy over UGC guidelines allowing Universities to conduct final exams and have decided to reach Prime Minister Narendra Modi. On Thursday, students launched the petition on twitter, with an aim to approach PM Modi for his intervention in the matter.
“In this context, the recently released ‘UGC Revised Guidelines on Examinations and Academic Calendar for the Universities in view of Covid-19 Pandemic’, propose illogical and unacademic solutions for evaluating and granting degrees to students” the petition stated.
The petition also focuses on the online mode of exams to be a more viable solution to the problem. But both the exam modes have their own issues. “Other forms of credible and meaningful assessment like internal/continuous assessment and/or average scores of past semesters would meet the criteria of fairness and integrity better,” reads the petition.
UGC Guidelines to hold Final Year Exams:
Earlier, the University Grants Commission (UGC) had said that the final-year university examinations may be conducted by the end of September, either online, offline, or through a combination of both. UGC also said that the final-year students who have a backlog should compulsorily be evaluated by conducting examinations in offline (pen & paper)/online/blended (online+offline) mode as per feasibility and suitability.
