Uttar Pradesh government has decided to cancel all university exams except for final-year students amid coronavirus concerns, Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma announced today. The examinations for final year/semester will be conducted by September-end via offline or blended mode, he said.
Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh Board of High School and Intermediate Education has also cut down the syllabus by 30 percent this year. The remaining 70 percent of syllabus will be taught in three parts. An academic calendar will soon be issued.
"If any student could not appear for the last year/semester examinations, he will be given another chance. As per the convenience of the universities, another examination will be held for such students. This provision will be applicable for this academic year only," Sharma said.
