Indore: Though the central government is yet to decide when educational institutions are going to open, Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya has prepared timetable for undergraduate final year and postgraduate final semester exams.
“We have planned to hold the exams from July 1. However, approval from vice-chancellor Prof Renu Jain is still awaited on the proposed timetable,” said exam controller Ashesh Tiwari.
He stated that more than 56,000 students, including 44,000 of UG and 11,000 of PG courses would take exams.
UG final year exams were underway when the same had to be suspended in March third week following the outbreak of coronavirus in the state.
Tiwari stated that three papers of BCom, 10 of BA and 12 of BSc were left when exams were suspended.
Since then more than two months have passed but the exams could not be resumed following coronavirus pandemic.
Recently, the Raj Bhawan provided a window from June 29 to July 31 to universities asking them to hold UG final year and PG final semester exams.
“We are going to resume the UG final semester exams from July 1 and hold PG exams also from the same date,” Tiwari stated.
According to information, the university has identified nearly 35 private colleges which never doubled up as examination centres.
They have been made exam centres so that social distancing norms can be implemented smoothly.
