Delhi’s Universities Exams Cancelled: Manish Sisodia
The Government of Delhi, on Saturday, announced that all the exams in state-run universities will be canceled for now. The decision, this time, is not just for the intermediate semesters but for all the final year students as well. Delhi Deputy Chief Minister, Manish Sisodia, said that the final assessment will be based on the internal marks given on the internal assessments and the previous year examination’s result.
Mr. Manish Sisodia, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister, said: “Throughout this whole recent semester there were minimal studies and participation of the students and all the laboratories and other such facilities were closed. We confirmed believe that it is difficult to conduct exams, during this current period, when regular classes have not been held to complete all the syllabus. So, on the basis of whatever situation has had happened and because of this pandemic, the Delhi Government has decided to cancel all final-year and semester examinations for all semesters in state-run universities.”
The decision has been made for all the state-run universities of Delhi but it will impact universities such as Ambedkar University, Delhi Technological University, (GGSIPU) Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, (IGDTUW) Indira Gandhi Delhi Technical University for Women. This strongly made decision, however, will not be binding on prominent central universities such as Delhi University (DU), Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), Jamia Milia Islamia (JMI), etc.
This prominent decision of Delhi Government came after the UGC had instructed all universities to conduct exams by September 30, anyhow. The new UGC guidelines had come under criticism from states, students, and teachers who accused the commission and the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) for putting the students' lives in danger.
Delhi Government's announcement regarding the conduction of examinations came on the same day that HRD Minister, Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, defended UGC decision to conduct final year’s university examinations.
