Education News: The Savitribai Phule University (SPPU) has decided to move forward with the process of conducting examinations for the final year students based on the notice issued by the state government on May 8.
Earlier, the chief minister had announced that there would be no exams. Even final year students would be promoted, he said.
A management council meeting held on Monday decided to continue with the examination process until a formal communication would be received from the state government.
“We are going ahead with the process of conducting examination, which involves collecting data from colleges and communicating with them as per the normal process. However, if the state government issues any formal order to pass even final-semester students without holding exams, and then we will again rethink on this decision,” said SPPU pro-vice-chancellor N S Umrani.
A state government order issued on May 8 said that only final-year students would have to appear for the exams, while all others would be promoted based on their average marks.
Management council member, Sanjay Chakne, said, “With no written letter from the state government on cancellation of exams, the process cannot stop. Hence, it was decided at the council meeting to conduct the exams until government notification was issued.”
