All higher education institutes have been ordered by the Ministry of Education to postpone offline exams scheduled for May 2021. Online tests, on the other hand, may be used as a substitute
Due to the second wave of Covid – 19, the Ministry of Education has requested that all offline exams scheduled for May 2021 be postponed. Secretary of State for Higher Education Shri Amit Khare has written to all heads of centrally funded institutions, urging them to postpone all offline exams scheduled for May 2021. However, online exams and other activities can continue.
The decision will be checked in the first week of June, according to the message. Institutions have also been recommended to ensure that someone in the organisation who requires assistance receives it as soon as possible so that he or she can recover as quickly as possible. To stay healthy, all institutions must encourage qualified individuals to get vaccinated and ensure that everyone follows COVID -19 guidelines.
“The institutions have also been instructed to ensure that if someone in the organisation requires assistance, it should be delivered as soon as possible so that he or she can recover as quickly as possible. To stay healthy, all institutions must encourage qualified people to get vaccinated and ensure that everyone follows COVID -19 guidelines, according to the Education Ministry. Central Universities, Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs), and Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs) are among the centrally funded institutes (IIITs).
Owing to restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic, several universities around the country have already postponed semester and entrance exams. Final-year undergraduate and postgraduate exams at Delhi University have been deferred until June 1. Students at Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) in Uttar Pradesh have requested that final exams be cancelled and results be announced based on internal evaluations and assignments.
The Centre also agreed today to postpone NEET-PG for at least four months, with the exam not taking place before August 31, 2021. It was also determined that students would be given at least one month’s notice after the exam was announced before it was held, allowing for a large number of eligible doctors to be available for Covid duties. The NEET-PG (National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test – Post Graduate) exam, which had been scheduled for April 18, had previously been postponed due to a spike in COVID-19 cases in April.
After some junior doctors who wanted to take the exam urged authorities to postpone it, the decision was made. On Twitter, #postponeneetpg and other related hashtags were also trending. Meanwhile, India’s COVID-19 case load decreased slightly, despite the fact that the number of recoveries remained above three lakh. India recorded 3.68 lakh new cases and 3,417 deaths in the previous 24 hours on Monday morning.
Many exams have been cancelled or delayed as a result of the pandemic’s second phase. The April session exams for JEE Main 2021 have been postponed until further notice. The UGC NET 2021 test, which was supposed to take place in May, has been postponed as well. The government postponed the CBSE Class 12 Board Exam 2021 and cancelled the CBSE Class 10 Board Exam 2021 last month.
