Covid has shaken the entire educational system. Unable to conduct classes on time. Educated online during the lockdown, there has been positive feedback. An honest effort was made to reach as many as possible. There was also the thought of taking classes and testing for a few days in between. However, Covid decided to drop them all and pass the intermediate semester / year due to the widespread spread. He explained that the students studying in the final year / semester are advised to take the exams (online) by the end of September.
How to pass:
Students studying in the intermediate semester / year are passed on the basis of internal assessment and comprehensive evaluation of the previous semester / year (50:50). Students who have not scored in previous years (eg first semester students) will be passed through a full internal assessment.
In the meantime, students who want to improve their scores are allowed to write the exams separately in the semester. DCM said there would be an opportunity for carryover of backlog issues.

Why the final semester exam ?:
The final semester is being tested for students without jeopardizing their academic assessment and their employment. Educational evaluation is essential in higher education systems. Therefore, the academic ability of the students must be taken into account. Employer companies also recognize the academic quality of employees and the rank they earn. If they are not tested, they are sure to get hurt in the future. Deputy Chief Minister Dr. C. N. Ashwath Narayan informed that all VVs have been instructed to make all necessary preparations for this test.
Online class from September 1:
Online classes will begin on September 1 and offline classes from October 1 for the first semester of the 2020-21 academic year. The VVs and colleges have been instructed to make all necessary preparations, ”he said.
Covid- 19 has been a big blow to the entire educational system. The challenge of determining the future of students and their future is also up to the government. The decision was taken after consultation with education experts and Chancellors of VVs.
