Srinagar: Kashmir University has decided to hold the internal assessment test online and set June 15 deadline for completing the syllabus of undergraduate and post-graduate students.

A meeting was held at Kashmir University on Monday and it was decided to complete the syllabus of students through virtual classes before June 15 and simultaneously conduct internal assessment examinations online.

The decision comes against the backdrop of UGC recommendation to start a new academic year from September instead of July given coronavirus and lockdown.

UGC has also recommended that the universities should either hold exams or should adopt some mode of assessing their performance before promoting them.

Media spokesperson, Kashmir University, Professor Shahid Rasool told The Kashmir Monitor that a committee has been framed which will decide the mode and weightage of end semester examinations.

“As recommended by the UGC, the varsity will hold internal assessments online with 50% weightage. If pen and paper examination is not possible, UGC has said the students to be promoted to the next semester on the bases of performance showed in viva exams, internal assessments, and assignments,” he said.

Professor Shahid noted that the committee will inspect all modes of holding examination and decide whether to go with internal assessments or hold end semester examinations as well.

“Most of the departments have already completed the syllabus of existing semesters and they have started the curriculum of the next semester. The internal assessment exams will be held for both the semester concurrently,” he said.

Professor Shahid said after June 15, Kashmir University will also, try to bring the academic session at par with national universities. “The academic session of universities at the national level will start in September and by the time we will release the result of last semesters and students will be able to join other universities outside for further degrees,” he added.

  8. What about pg entrance exam of batch 2016…..ku has not taken any decision regarding entrance exam….

  9. Promotiog students to next sem will remain nice as the stduents of 5th semester are spending fourth year in college vis-a-vis they will be eligible for national universities also..alleviate burden on KU

  10. It would have been good decision if 4g service were there and there may be some students who may not have smartphones, how will they give assessments.
    We wanted freedom from all the restrictions the hell gov.had imposed only on Kashmiris.

  12. It z a good decision but only when 4G is there otherwise it seems totally descrimnated. So the authorities should first work out how to get people of valley out of trauma as students coudnt access like rest of the country since August 5′ 2019.

  18. At par with national university is a good opportunity as well good option. Lot of summer programs for PG as well as B.G students in various research institutes are conducted during summer vacation and always our students miss that opportunity. Regarding the examination , committee has to come with some possible solution.

  19. Worst decision
    Students ne thoda saa hi padha hai.
    The university must have to promote their students

  20. Not good decision held by Kashmir University ,,,2g pe konsa online exam denge students aur unhone kuch pada hi nhi …already August 2019 se hi depress Mai aur kuch nhi pada tbse …
    This is totally wrong decision ..inko next semester keliye promotion krna chahiye best rhega ..taaki aane wala semester Mai kuch to padsakhe .

  21. Shame on whole system
    Those who doesn’t have mobile phones
    those who doesn’t have studying material
    Those who are not aware of syllabus
    How are they able to go through online exams.
    Remedy must be to halt the exams upto the students doesn’t study around 50% of syllabus at coĺleges.

  22. Tab say leya inhuv na exam .hmay to graduation mai h inhuv fayada deya jab exam latay fr bachav ko fail kartay hai .paper check b nahi keya hota hai …phalay to bachay kashmir university ka naam sun kay h depress ho jatay hai
