The Chhattisgarh government on Monday evening announced the university exams of final year students will be conducted after the lockdown is lifted in the state. Meanwhile, no exams will be conducted for first or second-year students.
However, the state’s higher education department has directed the universities to evaluate the examinations that were held before March 14 for both graduate and postgraduate students.
The universities will evaluate the remaining subjects based on students’ performances in the previous exam or on the basis of marks obtained during internal assessment.
“In view of measures being taken to curb Covid-19, exams only for final year/semester of universities will be held. The order in this regard was issued by the higher education department on Monday evening,” a public relations official was quoted as saying by PTI in this regard.
The official also stated that the final year examinations of students pursuing their course in correspondence mode will also be held.
As per the report if a student is not satisfied with the assessment, he/she can appear in special examinations, which will be held next year.
Meanwhile, the Maharashtra government cancelled all final-year university exams and directed the institutions to promote students on the basis of aggregate marks.
