Even after the Supreme Court ordered that exit-year students of universities and colleges cannot be promoted without an examination, the state government is yet to issue any direction in this regard to the institutes.


Tript Bajwa, Education Minister


The issue is to be decided by the Chief Minister. Since he has been directly contacting the Prime Minister's Office and taking decisions on this front, the further course of action will also come from him.


The authorities of all universities are waiting for the state government to take a decision on this front. So far, no meeting has been called of Vice Chancellors of universities to take a final call on the modalities of the examination. The Supreme Court had given the universities three options to conduct the examination: Online mode, offline mode or blended form. The university officials are largely in favour of the online mode so as to wind up the process fast and announce the result at the earliest.

Vice Chancellor of IK Gujral Punjab Technical University Ajay Sharma said, "We are expecting a meeting with the Technical Education Minister to decide the process of holding the final-year examination. We had earlier conducted a survey taking feedback from students regarding their choice for modality of examination. Now, we are in the process of getting it conducted afresh."

"We have so far received no communication from Guru Nanak Dev University on how to go about the examination for final-year students. I personally feel it is very difficult to take examination in this situation when our students are scattered across Punjab and even in other states," said Dr Atima Sharma, Principal, KMV College. Examination controller of GNDU Manoj Kumar said, "We will follow whatever guidelines we get from the state government."
