By Ojas Singh

Lucknow: Final Year examination in the Uttar Pradesh Universities will be conducted in the mid of August. However the final decision on examination schedule will be decided by the respective universities depending upon the district Covid-19 protocols.

The Uttar Pradesh Government on Tuesday said that only final year exams would be held in undergraduate courses as it issued guidelines for annual and semester examinations in state and private universities for the academic year 2020-21 that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma, who also holds the higher education portfolio, said that in the universities, where the first-year exams in undergraduate courses were not held, the students will be promoted to the second year. However, based on the second-year exams in 2022, the marks for their first year will be decided.

For students in the second year, who have appeared in the first year examinations in 2020, their marks can be decided based on the score in the first year, and accordingly they can be promoted to the third year, Mr Sharma said in a statement.

The examination system will be simplified at the university level and the results will be declared by August 31, Mr Sharma said in the statement.
