All Delhi state university exams cancelled: All you need to know
The Delhi government has asked all the state universities to evaluate students according to their previous academic record or come up with a progressive plan to grade students.
No point taking exam of a semester that has not been taught, said Sisodia.
Manish Sisodia said there will be no state-prescribed mode of evaluation but the universities have been left to decide on a “progressive” system that doesn’t involve exams.
The decision will impact universities such as Ambedkar University, Delhi Technological University, Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, Indira Gandhi Delhi Technical University For Women. The decision, however, will not be binding on central universities such as Delhi University (DU), Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI), etc.
The latest development comes two days after the Delhi University postponed exams for the final year students of Undergraduate (UG) and Post Graduate (PG) students to August 15.
