The latest announcement made on Wednesday is applicable for the students who were preparing to write arrear exams as well. However, final semester students must write their exams in order to get their degree. “The state government has already granted exemptions to students who were to appear for the regular exams” Chief minister Edappadi Pazhaniswamy said in his statement.
“Accepting requests from the students and keeping their welfare in mind, and based on the recommendations made by the expert committee set up by government of Tamil nadu, examinations for students who were registered to write their semester exams by paying the exam fees, except the final semester exams, will be cancelled as per the guidelines of the University grants commission and All India Council for technical education and marks will be provided to them” the statement said.
Tamil nadu government had written to the Union minister for Education explaining that it was not possible to conduct the exams in the state by the given date due to the rising number of COVID 19 cases and other practical difficulties. The marks for these exams will be awarded based on the guidelines given by University Grants Commission (UGC) and All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).” the chief minister of the state said.
