The date of filling up of examination form for Open Book Examinations of final year students has been extended up to June 22, 2020.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the nation was under lockdown since the month of March. All the educational institutions, corporate offices, and public places were temporarily closed. Generally, till last year, students of Delhi University had their exams in the month of May. This year, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the university is temporarily closed and that is why exams have not been conducted yet for the students.
PROMOTION OF FIRST AND SECOND YEAR STUDENTS
It is important to maintain social distancing nowadays. As this is an infectious disease and the cases of coronavirus are increasing at a high rate day by day, it is not possible and safe for the university to conduct classroom examinations. Due to the prevailing conditions, the University Grants Commission decides to promote first and second-year students of Delhi University. All the first and second-year students of Delhi University are promised on the basis of the previous semester result and internal assessment of the current semester. Students are promoted on the basis of a 50-50 formula.
NO EXAMINATION FORM WILL BE ACCEPTED BEYOND THE NOTIFIED DATE
But, the university decided to conduct examinations of final year students. Final year students would have their exams in the month of July. Before the conduct of examinations, and in order to get an admit card for the same, students have to fill an examination form. It is compulsory to be filled by all the students. Then only, they would get their admit card issued. Students are not allowed to appear for exams without admit card. There is a specific date set until which students can fill up the examination form. Students would not be allowed to fill up the examination form after the expiry of the date. The date for filling up the examination form for students has been extended up to 22 June 2020.
