Private registrations for undergraduate courses will be restored at the University of Kerala as decided on Tuesday at a meeting of the Syndicate. The university has also decided to publish the results for the fifth and sixth semesters on June 17 and 26, 2017.
The University Grants Commission (UGC) had withheld the recognition of the School of Distance Education (SDE) for two years, during which students gained admissions to various state colleges through private registration. According to a previous decision, the removal of private registrations should not affect students who have already gained registrations.
