UGC GUIDELINES FOR FINAL YEAR EXAMS TO BE QUESTIONED IN SUPREME COURT

The University Grant Commission (UGC’s) recently released guidelines for the examinations are subjected to be challenged in the court. The recently released UGC guidelines mandated the exams for final year students and further navigated to conduct exams by September. Anubha Shrivastava, India wide parents association chief said that they are going to approach the Supreme Court. She further asserted that they will demand relief for lakhs of final year students in India.

Students via social media are protesting against the UGC’s decision and are demanding UGC’s guidelines to be scrapped. Undergraduate and postgraduate students are urging that assessment should be done based on internal exams and the previous semester’s results. They solicit the 50-50 criteria which have been set for the intermediate students. A final year student asserted that the guidelines did not bestow deliberation on the infrastructure. Also, the demographic limitations of our education system are being ignored by the UGC. A student Sharanya tweeted that the adamant assertion on the conduct of pen and paper during the epidemic will spell fate for students.

A student named Ashish Kumar proposed UGC to cancel final year exams and assess students on the basis of internal assessments. He further asserted that UGC should propose a provision for the students disappointed with the current results. Pen and paper exams should be conducted for the students when the situation gets stable.

UGC’s DECISION TO CONDUCT FINAL YEAR EXAMS BETRAYS ITS POOR UNDERSTANDING OF CBCS SYSTEM

Another student stated that UGC should make its guidelines as an advisory. The UGC should remove the compulsion and leave the decision on the state. Abhishek on Twitter tweeted that they don’t own a laptop or tablet. Also, the families will not let them travel to cities for online exams.

Even after the protests, UGC’s decision stays intact. Till now over 640 universities have responded to UGC’s guidelines on holding exams, said UGC. Out of these, over 454 Universities have conducted the exams or are planning to do so. Around 177 universities are yet to take a decision on the conduct of final year exams. The commission told that over 27 private universities established during 2019-20 are not yet eligible for final year exams.

FINAL YEAR EXAMS: UGC CLAIMS CENTRAL AND STATE GOVERNMENT CANNOT SCRAP UNIVERSITY EXAMS

Professor Rajnish Jain, UGC secretary a week back said that the commencement of final year examinations are very important. Also with the conduct of exams, the safety of the students is the primary concern. Universities and colleges can opt-out for the blended mode to conduct final year exams. The UGC guidelines have been formulated as per the standard operating procedure proposed by the Health Ministry. He included that final year exams fir students should be conducted by all the states.

  • If any student die with covid-19 who will responsible for students life and also their families govt or universities or UGC how are you going to make them risk their lives and give exams ?on one hand, you ask people to stay indoors, on the other hand academic excellence is based onone single paper

  • I totally agree with Syed afzal Ali bro , we all are the feature of country and how can u put our life's in danger and we r not ready to loose our machured children u only tell us if we loose them who will bare the pain and u will just conduct a exam and we should loose our children and the children who's age it 20/21 how u only tell us how survive with out them we are not ready to write exam and we r not telling to cancel the exam plz conduct the exams after the cure of this virus 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 plzzzzzzzzz understand our situation also plz I think u r also a parent

  • For completing any graduation or post graduation one has to go through few exams. Final exam is only one part of the course. Do they disbelieve in the previous exams or evaluation which was done according to their OWN RULES AND REGULATIONS ?

  • Gov is ready to pass 12th student fy sy but only complication for final yr only iti and other students are awaiting they r not graduate , same for diploma students fy sy got promoted but not final yr what is this studying in any yr is equally importantant so pls allow final yr students to pass

  • I just hope supreme court take decision soon. Lakhs of students career is on hold, if university exams is on there are University like Bangalore University who declares the results late. One yr will get waisted ,if ugc wants to conduct exams then ugc should tell universities to declare results in weeks so that those who wants to go overseas or pursue job can go for it.

  • They are the most educated personalities of the nation, they should realise, conducting exam in this kind of situation is a disastrous, not only for their health, but we are putting the lives of the whole nation at stake, the students/lecturer involved in the exam/evaluation will become the carrier to the families/neighbors and the whole society.

  • What interest is playing behind change of decission of UGC for final semster exam is a matter of surprise. According to UGC, it appears that Covid 19 has out broken only in India and thus student if desire to go out side India for further study will be humiliated. There was the option for appearing exam if anyone is not satisfied with earlier decission. Then why the word "compulsory", " must" etc as mandate, stamped the further decission, is a painful matter. Prime Minister is earnestly requested to interfere on the issue out of court immediately for a reasonable solution.

  • Why would degrees of final year students be less valuable without an exam when continuing students will get degrees without exams for this semester?Examinations of intermediate semesters are cancelled, won't it affect their employability in future? Because in semester based pattern of education, every individual semester has the same weightage. What is so special about the final semester that makes it so important to appear for examinations, while you can forego appearing other semester examinations?

    • Exam deni k liye ready h but baar baae exam cancel ku kar rahi ho .exam lani h to lo sir exam ki chakkar mai ham dusri hamari competition ki taiyari nahi ho pa rahi .
      Please sir Jaldi decision lijiye.

      • During this pandemic it's hard to decide. We are all already at that mindset of deciding between our life and death. Please reconsider about this. Also education is main parts of peoples life who are all at confusions states.

        Also a request if possible that ugc have decided please consider about the student who are doing the distance education. Our mind is so confusing when we don't know if you have decided only for regular students or involving us as well.

        Please reconsider about conducting the exam at the end life matters than education. We won't be able to proceed our study if we no longer alive.

  • Exam deni k liye ready h but baar baae exam cancel ku kar rahi ho .exam lani h to lo sir exam ki chakkar mai ham dusri hamari competition ki taiyari nahi ho pa rahi .
    Please sir Jaldi decision lijiye.

  • I just dont understand why our previous sem are waste because ugc is considering degree based on the final sem if not i.e., a corona degree right then you should have consider only one exams not these many sem right.and also i think u r gona not spoil our degree u r spoiling juniors degree by providing them pass in the middle acdemic year if u pass us na then however who studies na they will study for next exams or jobs and ur just simple providing mental pressure in this crisis in all status all want to reduce the cases but ugc want to increase it and make india backward and one more thing we have studies all sem only we dont want to write exam not because we r fearing of exams we fearing for our family who r gona involve in this and we r risking our lifes only to satisfy ugc 😏
