The University Grants Commission (UGC) has decided that certain universities can hold the internal examinations using online platforms.

The UGC and Vice Chancellors of different public universities have reached in this decision after holding a meeting through Zoom Platform on Thursday.

In this regard the certain university has to decide the matter in its academic council meeting. The technical committee has given certain directions along with a guideline for holding examinations through online. After abiding by the matters universities have to take the examinations.

If any student or university does not want to take part in the online examination then it should not be forced. If any university thinks that it would take the exams offline after situation improves then they will do that. That means it would not be forced upon anybody to hold the online examinations.

In this regard UGC Secretary (additional responsibility) Dr. Ferdous Zaman said, decision has been taken to hold the examinations abiding by the international guidelines. But each university has to obtain approval from its syndicate and academic council.

He said, viva would be given more priority. Universities were asked to maintain all types of strategies for holding the examinations in a transparent way. Discussions were held about developing software.

Mentionable, according to the sources universities can arrange examinations using online platforms if they want after the Eid ul Fitr.
