As per reports, the government of Maharashtra has approached the University Grants Commission (UGC), seeking extension till October 31 to complete final-year exams for professional and non-professional courses.

This comes after the Supreme Court’s decision with regards to final-year examinations in which the apex court stated that the students cannot be promoted without giving exams and can seek an extension of the September-end deadline set by UGC to complete the process.

Earlier on September 8, Mumbai University had issued a circular regarding the organization of the examinations. Examinations are to be conducted at the college level in a cluster system. This means that there will be one lead college and 6 to 7 schools in the area. In this one cluster, examinations will be held one at a time, as per the schedule. Question papers will also be cluster wise. Students will receive instructions from their college regarding the same.

Moreover, all the theory examinations will be based on the syllabus taught in the college till March 13, 2020 and will have to be taken online. Furthermore, the university has directed the colleges to start the backlog examinations from September 25, 2020. However, if the college has taken the backlog student exams in February-March 2020, then it does not need to be taken again.
