Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia today (July 11) said that the Delhi government has decided to cancel all upcoming semester and final year exams in all state government-run universities in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic situation.
Sisodia announced this decision over Twitter, along with a video message.
“In light of the major disruptions caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, Delhi govt has decided to cancel all Delhi state university exams including final exams,” he tweeted.
Sisodia said these Delhi state run universities have been asked to promote their students and award them degrees, adopting some methodology of evaluation so that the students can apply for jobs or higher education.
The Deputy CM stated: “Unprecedented times require unprecedented decisions.”
Sisodia also informed that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will write to the central government, requesting cancellation of exams for the central universities as well.
