In light of the major disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Delhi government has decided to cancel all Delhi state university exams, including final exams.
In a 6.50-minute long video shared by Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Twitter, he said all exams of the universities falling under the state stand cancelled owing to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in the city. Sisodia said these state universities have been asked to promote their students and award them degrees adopting some methodology of evaluation.
He said studies in the universities were disrupted due to the pandemic, and it was not possible to conduct examinations. Unprecedented times required unprecedented decisions, Sisodia added.
Manish Sisodia also clarified that the decision on the exams to be taken by universities falling under the Centre will be taken by the MHA. He also said Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging him to cancel the exams of the universities falling under the Centre.
