Due to an increase in COVID-19 cases throughout the country due to the second wave of novel Coronavirus, the Gujarat government has decided to cancel all college and university examinations in the state.
The state administration has stated that all students in colleges and universities would be promoted without having to take examinations.
Vijay Rupani, the state’s Chief Minister, has granted ‘merit-based progression’ to students in the second, fourth, and sixth semesters.
Except for medical and paramedical students, a total of 9.50 lakh students from all colleges and universities would be promoted.
“In a major relief for over 9.50 lakh undergraduate college students, CM Shri @vijayrupanibjp decides to grant Merit Based Progression to the 2nd, 4th & 6th semester students, other than medial-para medical courses, of all the Govt and Pvt colleges/universities of the State,” a tweet from the Chief Minister’s Office said.
Due to the pandemic, the state administration had previously declared that students in grades 9 to 11 will be promoted without examinations this year.
According to the Gujarat Board’s recommendations, school administrators can give students in Class 9 and 11 more than 10 points as a grade.
