DU UG & PG Final Year Exams Postponed Further

New Delhi, 21 May 2021: In a meeting held on Wednesday, the heads of various Delhi University departments and other senior varsity officials decided to postpone the final year exams for UG and PG students. Now, the final semester exams for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in DU are rescheduled to begin from June 7.

This is the second time that the DU final year exams have been deferred. Earlier, the DU final year exams were scheduled to begin on May 15 but due to the second wave of COVID-19 across the country, the exams were postponed till June 1. 

Note: The University has also issued a notification saying that exams will be held online and in an “open book format”. 

DU Final Year Exams – Official Notification

In an official notification issued by DU on Thursday, Prof. D.S. Rawat, Dean of Examinations, University of Delhi, stated that the new date sheet for the exam will be released soon on the Delhi University’s official website, and the detailed guidelines for the May/June 2021 exam will be issued in a due course of time. He further noted that ever since there has been a lockdown, people aren’t coming to work and therefore, the date sheet couldn’t be uploaded on time. 

The notification specified that all the “date sheets for commencement of examinations from May 15, 2021, are hereby withdrawn.”

D S Rawat also ruled out the possibility of the exams being postponed further.

Students who are registered for the final year DU examinations can visit the official website i.e., du.ac.in to keep a check on further updates.  

DU Final Year Exams – Students and Teachers Support Cancellation

Several students and teachers of Delhi University have raised their concerns regarding the conduct of exams amid the COVID-19 situation. Many students requested the university to cancel the examinations for this academic year.

The Delhi University Teachers Association has also written their concerns to the acting vice-chancellor, Prof. PC Joshi. The letter dated April 30 stated that the university must take the current situation in a sensitive view as no one is in a position to conduct or write exams at this moment. Hence, they requested the university to consider the pandemic situation and cancel the exams for this year and decide upon an alternative method to evaluate students.
