Chandigarh, September 10

The standing committee for conducting exams held an online meeting today.

Sources said the decision regarding not conducting any entrance test may be extended to the postgraduate courses due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Recommendations in this regard are yet to be received by the Vice-Chancellor’s office.

“In a meeting held on September 3, it was decided to scrap all entrance tests for all courses and the same as been agreed upon for postgraduate courses. Though there has been no official confirmation on this. The matter is still under consideration and the office of the VC is yet to receive the minutes of the meeting,” said a source.

The final decision is likely to be taken before September 15 on the directions of the Punjab and Haryana High Court.

No NOC for campus pupils

“Panjab University (PU) campus students will not need a no objection certificate (NOC) before taking the exams starting from September 17,” said the Controller of Examination.

After the authorities announced the need for an NOC before taking the exams, campus students, who don’t stay in Chandigarh, had raised concerns.

“No NOC is required for campus students as per the orders of the DUI. We’ll let students appear for exams and any changes may be looked into during the declaration of results,” said Parvinder Singh, PU, Controller of Examination. — TNS
