MHRD urged not to push for mandatory UG, PG final term exams


Bhubaneswar: The state government on Thursday requested the Union Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) to reconsider the revised guidelines of UGC and not to make the conduct of Under Graduate (UG) and Post Graduate (PG) final term exams mandatory.

In a letter to HRD Minister, state Higher Education Minister Arun Kumar Sahoo requested to reconsider the revised guidelines of UGC and not to make conduct of UG & PG final term exams mandatory.

MHRD has been requested to allow the state government to adhere to its decision of cancellation of these exams.

According to the UGC, the special examinations can be conducted by the university whenever possible so that the students do not face any inconvenience or loss. This provision will only be applicable as a one-time measure for the current academic session 2019-20.
