For non-professional degree courses , the student’s performance would be assessed on the basis of their past examination results.
If, any students opt-for examinations, they will have to make a written application to the respective University or the district collectorate concerned and depending on the Covid-19 situation, a suitable decision will be taken in the matter.
On the issue of backlog of past students, a separate announcement will be aired in the next few day.
