Late last month, UGC had advised universities all over the country to conduct semester exams in the month of July in either online or offline method. The suggestion came in view of the coronavirus situation in the country. The commission also urged all varsities to reduce the total duration of exam from three to two hours.

In states where the COVID-19 situation is under control, UGC said even exams of intermediate semester students can be conducted in July.

“Universities may adopt alternative and simplified modes and methods of examinations to complete the process in a shorter period of time,” UGC specified.
