LU To Conduct Final Year Examination

By Ojas Singh

LUCKNOW: Lucknow University is going to conduct a physical examination for final year students soon. However, the rest of the semester's students will be promoted without examination.

The date of examination is yet to be decided.

More than 50,000 final-year or final-semester undergraduate (UG) and postgraduate (PG) students of Lucknow University and its 180 affiliated colleges will have to appear for an offline examination to be held soon. However, the students of the remaining years or semesters will be promoted on the basis of internal examination marks.

The decision was taken in the examination committee meeting held on Thursday. The examination of final-year/semester will be held on a multiple-choice question pattern. The question paper format will depend on respective courses.

For promotion of other students, departments and colleges which could not hold internal examinations due to the pandemic have been asked to organise online tests and upload marks on the LU examination portal. In case examinations were held but a student couldn’t appear, departments and colleges will hold an online test for such students again

LU spokesperson Durgesh Srivastava said, “With regard to the promotion of students, if colleges and departments have not been able to hold semester exams due in June, they will have to organise online internal exams at their level and upload marks on the LU exam portal. Students will be promoted on the basis of internal assessment of this year/semester.”

With regard to final-year/semester students, he said that examinations will be held in the offline mode.

“We have announced the question paper format and time duration. Examination schemes will be announced later,” he added.
