HP University Exams: Confusion over HC orders
Due to the global pandemic, a group of students had filed a petition for the postponement of the term-end semester exams. The exams planned for Monday took place across various centers. But the high court postponed the exam for Tuesday due to the orders allocated by the high court.
State Secretary Rajiv Sharma wrote a letter to the VC, directing the university to conduct the examination according to the UGC guidelines, which were issued earlier in July. The guidelines directed that final year examinations should be conducted by all universities this year.
When HPU VC is asked to file a review petition at HC, Sharma said that the sudden stoppage of examinations would create problems for the students who have gone from different places for it.
Sharma said in his letter that university examinations will now be held as per the preparatory schedule. Because the postponement can create uncertainty for students and may lead to a lot of unnecessary administrative measures.
