In a major move, the Gujarat University has postponed the first phase of the final year examination that was scheduled to begin on August 21, 2020. The offline exam has been postponed for only courses under UGC and not for courses governed by councils like the Medical Council and Dental Council.
With the postponement of the exam, a lot of chaos marred the varsity headquarters. Later GU Registrar Piyush Patel clarified to the deans the courses for which the exam has been postponed. However, students can register for the online examination till August 16.
Vice-Chancellor Himanshu Pandya said, “The offline exam has been postponed keeping in mind Ministry of Home Affairs guidelines of keeping educational campuses closed till August 31.”
However, the Dean of Law and Education Department on Monday said that varsity will provide the option of holding an online exam for the final year students in courses like BA, BSc, BCom, and others.
The varsity has released the exam dates for UG and PG courses in July. The exams would be conducted in two phases, the first beginning on August 21 and the second on August 31, 2020. The University administration informed that the exams would be conducted in both online and offline modes.
This year around 70,000 students will appear for final year exams for various courses.
