Coronavirus fallout: Final year exams not compulsory in Maharashtra

The Govt has announced that as part of the precautionary measures against coronavirus the final year exams have been made optional - those who don't want to appear for the exam will have their previous semester grade counted as the final year result.

MUMBAI, June 21: In view of the coronavirus epidemic, the Maharashtra Higher and Technical Education Department has made the final year exams for professional and non-professional courses in all the 14 universities in the State optional for the students. That is, those who want to take the exam can do so and those who don't want to take the exam and want their previous semester grades to be taken as the final results can opt likewise.

"If you wish to change the grades or feel the marks are not up to your expectations and you want to take the exams, then the District Collector looking at the COVID-19 situation can give the exam," said Uday Samant, Minister, Higher and Technical Education, Maharashtra Government.

Either way, the students will have to give a written consent to the concerned university whether they want to take the exam or not. There are about 10 lakh students in the final year. Decision about those yet to clear previous semesters will be taken soon.

Currently 41 colleges and 198 hostels are being used as quarantine centres for coronavirus suspects. Maharashtra leads the States with the highest number of infections. Almost one-third of the country's cases are from Maharashtra. Of 13,254 deaths so far in the country, Maharashtra has recorded 5,984.

Meanwhile, Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari has expressed his difference of opinion.

At the same time, early this week the Government had also announced that classes for Std 9, 10 and 12 will commence on July 1.
