In the wake of Coronavirus epidemic, the Odisha State Government has announced the schedule of the UG and PG exams and result declaration and the admissions procedure for fresh admissions.
According to reports, Odisha Higher Education Minister Arun Kumar Sahoo has declared the schedule after a meeting conducted with the Vice-Chancellors through conferencing.
The examinations for the sixth-semester undergraduate students will be conducted between June 20 and July 24, 2020. The results of the final year UG examinations will be declared by August 31, 2020. The examinations for the postgraduate students will be completed by August 20, 2020, and the results will be declared by September 20, 2020.
Currently, the students are required to submit an application form separately for admissions to each university and are required to appear for multiple examinations which is hectic and tedious for the students. Conducting entrance examinations will however help save the students from appearing in different examinations.
Conducting the undergraduate admissions depends on the Odisha board class 12 results. After the Odisha Board class 12 results are declared, the admissions to the Undergraduate programmes will begin.
