The Union Minister of HRD, in an interview with the Zee News last night, addressed the speculations concerning the fate of the examinations in the universities and the colleges across the country.

The minister highlighted the formation of a UGC taskforce to receive recommendations in order to orchestrate the examinations of the graduation and the post-graduation courses. He mentioned that the students in their first semester/year of study will be entirely evaluated on the basis of their Internal Assessments. The students in their intermediate semester/year will be awarded a composite grade on the basis of their marks in the previous semester/year and the Internal Assessment marks of the present semester/year. These were the provisions for the promotion of the students to the next academic year.

The minister, however, clarified the stance on the examinations of the final year students and emphasized on the necessity of their examinations to be conducted. He said that though the examinations cannot be conducted in the month of July because of the health crisis across the country, the students will have to appear for their final examinations when the situation improves. The new academic session, he declared, will begin only after the final examinations are conducted.
