To end the suspension of many students, the University Grants Commission (UGC), is all set to release the revised set to UGC Guidelines for the pending University and College Exams. Last week, Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank had asked UGC to issue revised guidelines for the pending college and semester exams for university students.
In all likelihood, UGC Guidelines are expected to be out soon, which may either postpone the exam further until August 2020 or ask universities to promote the students on the basis of internal assessment to start the next academic year.
As of now, universities and college administrations across the country have been waiting for the guidelines to thereby start the necessary preparations for holding of the exam. Many state govts including Punjab, Rajasthan have cancelled the UG and PG exams.
An expert committee appointed by the UGC under the leadership of Haryana University vice-chancellor R C Kuhad, has recommended cancellation of all pending final semester examination that are scheduled to be held across the country in July 2020.
However, formally, neither HRD Ministry nor the UGC officials have confirmed that they would be releasing the guidelines today.
