Bangalore University relieves commerce students by announcing new examination dates

Bengaluru: Several students from B.Com, Bachelors in Business Administration (BBA) and Bachelors in Business Management (BBM) streams wanted to postpone their sixth semester examinations to ensure there is no overlap with the Charted Accountant Intermediate Integrated Professional Competence (IPCC) examinations. Students had faced a similar situation in 2016 too.

In a report, covered on May 12 by The New Indian Express, the date clashing issue was highlighted where the administration said that the dates were announced as per the University’s calendar for the 3.5 lakh students attempting the examination. The exams scheduled for May 18 were in fact postponed to May 27, in view of the election results that would be announced on May 24, the official had clarified, before assuring to make the changes.

On Monday, after an extensive meeting, the registrar of evaluation announced fresh dates for B Com students of semester VI. “In view of the representation received from the sixth semester B Com students pursuing CA/CS courses and appearing for intermediate/final examination of CA/CS examinations, scheduled to be held between May 27 and June 16, the sixth semester B Com/ BBA/ BBM examinations of May / June 2019 have been rescheduled,” said registrar (evaluation) in a note on Monday.

However, the date for the non-core subject on June 10 still remains the same. The note said there would be no changes in the paper or subject, time and other details as notified earlier.
