AMU open book exams 2020: University postpones exams of final year and semester students until further notice

The Aligarh Muslim University has announced that it is postponing all examinations of final year/semester students this year that were scheduled to be held in July until further notice.

The varsity in its notification said that the exams are being deferred due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the pending guidelines by the University Grants Commission (UGC) regarding examinations.

“All examinations (including backlog/arrear papers) of final year/semester students for the session 2019-20, scheduled in the month of July, 2020, stand postponed till further orders,” the AMU notice said.

The university said that further decision in the matter will be communicated after the guidelines notified by the Government of India/UGC.

On 24 June, Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank asked the UGC to revisit the guidelines regarding coronavirus and the conduct of examinations which the commission had released in April.

A report by NDTV mentions that the concerned committee has already submitted its recommendations but there has been no fresh guidelines issued by the council officially.

In the second week of June, AMU had announced that it will be conducting online open book examinations for final/end semester students in the month of July.

Students have been advised to regularly visit www.amucontrollerexams.com, the official website of Aligarh Muslim University Controller of Exams, to check updates.

Last month, AMU had announced its decision to cancel the pending papers of Class 10 and 12 due to the outbreak of coronavirus. The examinations were scheduled to be held from 6 to 9 July.
