The adoption of any method will have a far-reaching impact on the future of students. There are several methods suggested by the UGC in its guidelines released on 27th April. These methods suggested are Open Book Examinations, project work. Written assignments and essays, etc. But wherever the implementation of these methods is not possible, it is best to postpone the exams.
To make this happen, a decision should be taken to reduce the syllabus and the duration.
The National General Secretary of ABVP, Nidhi Tripathi, has said that while awarding the degree, the primary factors must be the aim and the quality of education imparted. Any decision must be taken while keeping the future of the student’s insight. It has been made clear by the shifting of the JEE and NEET entrance dates that the new session will only begin in November 2020.
Therefore, the universities and colleges should also wait until November 2020. By this time, the coronavirus pandemic will also probably be brought under control. After November, the University should move forward with a well-defined plan.
