Delhi University has determined to defer remaining 12 months examinations amid rising COVID-19 circumstances in town, officers mentioned on Sunday. The remaining 12 months and remaining semester exams have been supposed to start from May 15 however will now start from June 1. They might be in on-line mode and held in the open e-book format.
“We held a gathering on Saturday with all of the heads of the departments and deans. The assembly was chaired by the vice-chancellor. It was determined that the exams be postponed to June 1,” D S Rawat, Dean of Examinations, DU, said. Rawat said that the decision on exams for intermediate semesters will be taken later.
Teachers and students have been demanding the deferment of exams and even cancellation. The Delhi University Teachers’ Association had written to acting vice-chancellor Professor PC Joshi over the issue.
“… the University must take a sensitive view of the situation that students and teachers find themselves in – no one is in a position to write or conduct examinations at this moment. “Hence, we request you to consider cancelling examinations for all students and decide upon alternative means to evaluate students. Deadlines for submission of internal assessment must be extended,” that they had mentioned in a letter dated April 30.
