All universities will declare results by 7 August, according to an order by Principal Secretary of Higher Education Department Ankur Gupta.

"For the students from outside Haryana, the average of all previous examinations may be taken or they can opt either for writing the exam or improvement of grades later on by physical examination, if they haven't taken any exam earlier," he said in the order dated 12 June.

"For intermediate semester examination all students will be promoted to the next semester with 50 percent weightage of marks of internal assessment or assignment plus 50 percent weightage of marks in the previous examinations," the order said.

However, if a university intends to take examination of such students of the campus departments, they may do so, the order said, adding that those students who have academic arrears may be exempted from examination and are to be promoted to the next semester and reappears are to be carried forward.

For first-year students, only the internal assessment may be calculated for promotion to the next year, according to the order.

If practical examinations have not been held in a university, then average of previous practical exams will be taken or 80 percent average of theory examinations marks of previous semesters, whichever is higher.

"Admissions to university teaching departments will be conducted at individual university level whereas for undergraduate levels and postgraduate levels centralised online admissions for the colleges will be conducted by the Higher Education Department as per past practice," the order said.

During examinations, hostels will not be opened for students.
