AMU Open Book Examination for July 2020 Postponed
NEW DELHI: Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) has decided to postpone all end-semester examinations which were slated to be held in July till further notice. The decision to postpone the university final semester/year exams has been taken as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and as the University Grants Commission (UGC) guidelines for examinations are about to be released.
The information has been announced by AMU officials through a press release, available on their website – amucontrollerexams.com. The release by the AMU reads, “All Examinations (including backlog/arrear papers) of Final year/semester students, for the session 2019-20, scheduled in the month of July 2020 stand postponed till further orders. Further decision in the matter shall be communicated in light of guidelines/resolution notified by Government of India/UGC on the matter.”

Though the examinations have been postponed, however, no new dates have been announced for when will the exams be held further. Earlier, the HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank had asked the University Grants Commission (UGC) to come up with fresh guidelines pertaining to conducting the exams, considering the COVID-19 situation. However, those guidelines are yet to be announced.
It must be noted that many universities have been postponing their final year/semester exams due to the COVID-19 situation and uncertainties arising out of it. Earlier, the University of Delhi postponed its open book exams (OBE) for the final year students for 10 days. While the DU OBEs were slated to begin from July 1, after the postponement now, the authorities have decided to start the examinations from July 10. Similarly, Lucknow University has recently decided to postpone all university exams which were scheduled to be held from July 7.
