The state government has requested this extension in order to ensure the scheduling of exams with a gap of at least one day. This means that the examination centers can be properly renovated as a precaution, the state university department said in a letter.
Previously, the UGC had stipulated that the final exams for Bachelor and Postgraduates (UG) and Postgraduates (PG) must be compulsory by September 30th.
“To prevent the prevailing COVID-19 situation from worsening further, the UG and PG exams of the last semester / year should be staggered so that a large number of students do not have to come to the examination centers on a certain day and universities and colleges are given a gap of at least one day between exam days so that the entire exam center can be cleaned up and the entire COVID-19 protocol set up before the next exam day, “the letter said.
Therefore, the state government, exercising its powers under the State Disaster Management Act, has decided to grant UGC a 10-day extension to the 30 September deadline, i.e. H. By October 10, to request.
