Punjab Engineering College swaps exams for grades for UG students
NEW DELHI: Punjab Engineering College, Chandigarh, has decided to award results for all the final year undergraduate students in the eighth semester based on the continuous evaluation of their performance till mid-March. This was announced by Dheeraj Sanghi, director of PEC, through his Twitter handle on Tuesday.
Sanghi said that majority of the students would pass and “some students will be asked to complete an online course to pass”.
The students who will underperform in the continuous evaluation will be asked to appear in another test after the college reopens. “We hope that more than 90 percent of the students can graduate in mid-June without any compromise on academic principles,” he said.
The director had earlier hinted that there would be confusion among the higher educational institutions regarding completion of syllabus, saying, “Any decision will most probably require dilution in learning, grading and graduation requirements.”
The nationwide shutting down of universities and colleges since March 16 on account of COVID-19 lockdown has caused a delay in the completion of the academic session.
Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Monday had sought for an extension of the lockdown with a carefully drafted strategy.
