Maharashtra minister for higher and technical education Uday Samant on Friday said that all university students in the state except final year students will be promoted to the next level. Only final year students will give exams between July 1 and 30, unless lockdown is extended further, he said.
This decision has cleared the confusion of students on what will happen next in their academic session.
This statement comes almost a month after Samant formed an expert committee including vice-chancellors of state universities, directors of state common entrance test (CET) cell and directorate of technical education (DTE) as well as other experts, to come up with a concrete plan for the current and next academic year.
“A committee of vice-chancellors presented their report to the government today. The same was discussed with chief minister Uddhav Thackeray and the examination dates for higher and technical education will be declared on Friday at 1 pm,” Samant posted on Twitter.
