Visva Bharati University Exams 2020 Postponed till Further Orders Due to COVID-19 Pandemic

Visva Bharati University Exams 2020 Postponed till Further Orders Due to COVID-19 Pandemic. Visva-Bharati has postponed all exams slotted from July 10, revoking its June 2 order to its UG and PG final-semester students to reach campus from June 28 onwards for exams.

The Visva-Bharati University on Monday decided to postpone all examinations till further orders due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a notification said. The decision was taken at a meeting attended by heads of different ‘bhavanas’ (departments), under the Santiniketan-based central university, and vice-chancellor Prof Bidyut Chakraborty.

“The university examinations (all semesters), including school certificate examination 2020, are hereby postponed until further notification,” officiating registrar Asha Mukherjee said in the order. The notification was necessitated due to the “magnitude of the coronavirus pandemic” raging in the country, it said

Many teachers and students’ outfits SFI and ABVP had objected to holding the exams physically amid the pandemic. Varsity exams apart, the school certificate exam 2020 has been postponed. All students have been asked to stay off campus until further notice. “A large number of students told us they can’t reach the campus because of lack of transport. Many students live abroad. The varsity finally understood that the June 2 order asking the student to report to the campus starting June 28 was not justified and it was canceled,” said a senior varsity official.

Students who are staying outside the campus need not come back now till further notice, the notification said. Schools, colleges, and universities across the country have been shut since March 16, when the Centre announced a countrywide classroom shut down as part of measures to contain the COVID-19 outbreak. A nationwide lockdown was announced on March 24, which came into effect the next day.

While the government has eased several restrictions, schools and colleges continue to remain closed.
