Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU) or Nagpur University is scheduled to conduct the Summer 2020 examinations for backlog students of various programs through different modes; online, offline, or mixed mode. However, the schedule of examinations has not been declared yet.
According to Nagpur University (RTMNU) special rules for conduction of summer 2020 exams, a backlog student can start with either mode of exam. However, if a student encounters any problem with their respective mode, then they can switch from online to offline or vice-versa.
The varsity has taken the decision for only backlog students who have cleared their final year exams. However, due to COVID-19 and subsequent lockdown, NU Summer Exam 2020 were cancelled, and students couldn’t appear for their backlog exams.
Summer Exams 2020 which were cancelled in wake of the pandemic were never held afterwards. Following which, the university decided to merge summer and winter exams. However, the schedule for winter exams is yet to be released.
Moreover, these special rules that have been implemented for backlog students do not apply for regular odd semester students of all programs who have taken admission in the academic year 2020-21.
As NU has canceled summer exams 2020 with effect to COVID-19 pandemic situation. Now, odd semester students who were to appear for supplementary exams of all the programs in summer 2020 will be appearing in the forthcoming examinations.
Along with that, some students whose examinations were partially conducted before lockdown will also have to appear in the upcoming examination.
Final year and Final semesters external students studying in Nagpur University’s LLM, MA, and BA programs can appear in the forthcoming exams. However, the varsity will be conducting examinations for these through online mode only.
Earlier, backlog students had opposed Nagpur University's decision to charge an examination fee for the Winter session.
According to officials, since summer exams were canceled midway due to a sudden lockdown in March, it is not fair to seek more money when NU has saved a substantial amount in summer exams 2020.
