Srinagar: College principals of Kashmir University Thursday recommended promoting undergraduate students to the next semester based on internal assessments.
A meeting in this regard was held between Kashmir University officials and representatives of all government colleges on Thursday to discuss the mode of internal assessment and paper pattern for undergraduate students.

Around 50 representatives of different colleges were present at the meeting.

One of the college representatives told The Kashmir Monitor that given the pandemic neither pen-paper assessment is possible nor mass promotion is advisable.

“We have recommended that students pursuing undergraduate courses should be promoted to the next semester based on internal assessments. College authorities will have to decide the mode of the internal assessments and evaluation of the results,” he added.

An official of Kashmir University said suggestions and recommendations will be submitted to the Vice-Chancellor for final approval.

Public Relation Officer, examination wing, Kashmir University, Faheem Aslam said some recommendations were made by college principals regarding the mode of examination and evaluation of students.

“The recommendation shall be submitted to the higher authorities for approval. The final decision will be communicated to the students within a couple of days,” he said.

On May 27, Kashmir University decided to promote students of post-graduate courses and students of the select professional under-graduate courses to the next semester on the basis of internal assessments.

Moreover, Cluster University of Jammu and Kashmir has also decided to promote students of the intermediate semester of undergraduate and integrated courses on internal assessments. However, as per the UGC guidelines, the varsity will hold the examination of the final semester students.
