(UGC) has clarified that no new guidelines have been issued for university exams. The UGC has refuted all such claims, stating that all the students of the university, except the final year, will be promoted without examination. In this regard, the UGC has issued a notice on its official website. Which states that it has come to our notice that a wrong news has been published in the print and digital media about the guidelines of the UGC.
The UGC has further stated in its notice that no new guidelines have been released on the examinations recently and this news is incorrect. Earlier, on May 6, the UGC had asked all universities across the country not to conduct any offline examination in May. The UGC had clarified that in view of the current situation, no offline examinations should be conducted in May. In the first week of June 2021, there will be a review regarding the conduct of examinations. Only then, it will be decided. At the same time, the UGC had said that an online examination can be conducted after assessing the local conditions. The UGC had issued a letter in this regard to all universities and colleges in the country.
The Commission wrote in its letter that the entire country is currently facing the challenges of the second wave of the Kovid-19 epidemic. In such a situation, the health and safety of all is of paramount importance. In view of this, offline examinations to be held in May are being postponed. At the same time, the UGC had given permission to conduct the online examination. However, the university was directed to follow the guidelines issued by the Central Government, State Government, Ministry of Education and UGC for this and be prepared in all respects.
