UG, PG, Engg final semester exams: 2.50 lakh students tensed with no clarity in Telangana!

Over 2.50 lakh students who are pursuing final semester of under graduate (degree-UG), post graduate (PG) and engineering courses in Telangana are tensed with Telangana state government failing to give a clarity on when exams will be held.

The issue is pending with Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who is camping in his farmhouse at Erravelli on Hyderabad city outskirts for the past one week.

The higher education department officials have submitted a report to KCR recommending cancellation of all UG, PG exams this year in the wake of corona pandemic and promote all students to next class without conducting exams.

However, the UGC issued fresh guidelines two days ago directing all universities to conduct final semester exams compulsorily.

In this backdrop, officials are planning to hold exams only for final semester students and promote students of all other semesters to next semester based on their previous performance in semesters and internal assessment.

However, they are awaiting the approval from CM KCR for this but CM could not be reached due to his stay at farmhouse.

The delay is causing mental agony and confusion to about 2.95 lakh final semester students in Telangana who have no clarity when exams will be held and when exams schedule will be issued.

Students are demanding CM KCR to give a clarity on this issue immediately so as to prepare accordingly for exams.

Few final semester students who secured jobs in campus placements in various states across the country are more worried as companies are asking them to join duties immediately.

Students are tensed what to do if semester exams are held in September.
