  1. This is totally unacceptable.
    Final year students exams should be cancelled and they should be given GPA based on Average of 5 Semesters or the 5th Semester.
    They need to start Focusing on CAT , CA , UPSC or any other course.
    The First and Second Year students can give it as back papers next year or even after the new session starts as they have to be in College premises.
    But we need to move on.

  2. sir i live in brahampuri street number 23 yha pr 2 corona patient positive h aur humari gali ko seal krdia h pls paper cancel krvadijie ??

  3. Your comment is awaiting moderation
    I would like to suggest Only theory exam shall be conduct within week & what about back paper????

  4. Why du is doing so unfair to us even we have given the exams of the all 5 semester they have our records of past performance in the theory and practicals. The 1st and 2nd year student can give exams anytime when the lock down will open we 3rd year student can’t bear to extend our session we need to see our future also.
    This is totally unfair

  5. Exam nhi hone chahiye kyuki online class net issue ki wjh se ho nhi pari sahi se. Aur book issue bhi hora h. Class bhi nhi hori corona ki wjh se. Pta ni sb kese hoga.

  6. I really think, exams are lesser of a priority considering the outbreak of this deadly virus. Why is DU being so adamant about holding exams, especially for 1&2years? They still have time till they graduate. Focus should moreover be on the 3rd heart students. I don’t understand; is it about DU’s image? NcoV is anxiety provoking. Exams are just adding to the anxiety. I really am not in the favor of exams.

  7. In my opinion,first& second year exams should cancel due to covid19. bcoz they dont have books to prepare well and to attend online classes is not possible for every student.
    so, its a humble request to cancel the exams so that they can look forward to next year instead of worrying about this year exam and waiting for their result which can take much time.

    • Sir please this is a small request to you my opinion is that exams is not important our life is most important first and second year exam should cancel bz they don’t have books to prepare well and to attend online classes is not possible for every student please give us gernal promotion 😭😭

  8. 1st & 2nd year students must be promoted to the next year without any examination bcoz if exams will held then it must be very dangerous to allof the student who will urge to go to attend the examinations
