Kolkata News

Kolkata, Sep 2 (PTI) Calcutta University will conduct
final semester exams online from October 1 to 18, Vice-
Chancellor Sonali Chakraborty Banerjee said on Wednesday.

Students of under graduate and post graduate level
will take the exams during the period and the results will be
published by October 31, she said.

“Questions will be sent to those who cannot appear for
online exams via email and WhatsApp and have to submit the
answers in hard copy to his/her respective institution after
24 hours,” Chakraborty said.

For UG students, the answer sheets will be evaluated
by teachers of the same institute, unlike the previous
practice of external evaluation, the change necessitated in
view of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The West Bengal government had recently said the final
semester exams will have to be conducted by universities
between October 1 and 18 and the results will have to be
published by October 31.

“The earlier decision of the university senate (the
highest decision-making body) for evaluation based on 80-20
ratio (previous semester performance and internal assessment)
will not be valid any more,” the V-C added. PTI SUS
