Students from Containment Zones in Gujarat to Have Special Exams

Gujarat Education Department has announced that Semester examinations for college students in the containment zones in Gujarat will be held especially in the month of August or September.

Marks of these special exams will be reflected as regular marks in the students’ mark sheets. 

The state education department took this decision through a government resolution (GR) on Tuesday.

“For all those students who have returned to their native states or even outside the country will not be required to travel back for the examinations. For such students, online exams will be conducted… In universities like Gujarat Technological University and Gujarat University where students are enrolled from across the state and stay in the hostel for their studies, examination centre will be set up in each district for the students,” the GR stated.

The education department also announced to adjust the fee in the coming semester’s examination fee of students who are in intermediate semesters 2, 4, and 6. These students will be promoted on merit-based progression.

On May 29, under the chairmanship of Education Minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama, the education department conducted a webinar with the vice-chancellors of state universities.

As per another GR, all the universities in the state have been asked to make arrangements for the complete online admission process and do the verification of documents once the situation gets better. Instructions were also issued to all colleges affiliated to state universities to conduct online academic works for semesters 3, 5, and 7 from June 21.
