According to the circular, the end-term exams of even semester 2019-20 for intermediate semesters of all programmes including PhD course work and all semester of ex-students commencing from July 18, 2020, stand cancelled.
The varsity also informed that the guidelines/criteria for the assessment of various courses pertaining to intermediate semesters of all programmes will be notified in due course.
