Delhi University Exams: The Delhi University teachers wrote to the University administration opposing the recent examination proposal by UGC. In a letter to Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi opposing the formation of a new 15 member committee for conducting the examination.
The teachers said that many students have applied for foreign Universities in their final year whose semesters start around September thus conducting exams during July is not favorable for these students. The teachers also said that the results for final year students should be declared on the basis of the previous semester GPA so that the results are not delayed further.
The teachers also proposed that the first and second-year students can appear for their examinations in the next semester. One of the former AC members, Dr. Pankaj Garg said that online examination under current circumstances was not a good idea as the outstation students did not have any study material. Also, internet availability is a big problem since many outstation students do not have good internet accessibility which requires the attention of the decision-makers.
Recently, Delhi University students also wrote a letter to various government departments including UGC stating their problems with the very conduction of examinations and proposed that final year students should be promoted on the basis of previous semester results.
