Kolkata: Visva-Bharati University, West Bengal on Tuesday announced that it will hold the final semester examinations in September and asked principals of different Bhavanas to choose the modalities for conducting these exams.
The Central University will follow the UGC advisory for mandatorily wrapping up the final semester examinations by September 30, an official statement from the university said.
At an Executive Council meeting, it was decided to entrust the principals of different Bhavanas with the responsibility of “choosing the mode of examination, adhering to the UGC norms,” The Indian Express reported.
“The Principals will consult the HODs and the faculty members to devise whatever system of evaluation they deem appropriate in such extraordinary circumstances. It was also emphasised that in so devising a mode, the views of the students that the administration has received will also be taken into consideration, besides assessing the modes that have already been preferred by other central universities in the country,” the statement said.
Supreme Court on August 28 directed colleges to follow UGC guidelines and conduct exams before September 30.
The top court had also said that if any state had problems in completing the exams by September 30, it should take up the matter with UGC and fix another date but must complete the final semester exam process nevertheless.
No fixed exam date has been announced yet.
