As for exams which were scheduled to take place on 29 May and thereafter, a statement from the university said that will be held as per their original schedule, a report in Times of India said.

While the varsity's statement says the postponing of exams is due to "unforeseen circumstances", it is being touted as a step taken in the light of growing agitation following the police firing.

The revised schedule for the exams scheduled to take place on 25, 26 and 28 May has been changed to following dates:

Exam scheduled on 25 May will be held on 5 June 5 (Tuesday)
Exam scheduled on 26 May will be held on 6 June (Wednesday)
Exam scheduled on 28 May will be held on 7 June (Thursday)

Meanwhile, the Tamil Nadu government also announced that Class 10 students from the affected districts — Tuticorin, Tirunelveli, and Kanyakumari — would get three more days to apply for re-totalling of marks.
