The UGC has clarified that in view of the current conditions across the country, no offline examinations should be conducted in May. The decisions of the examinations will be reviewed in the first week of June 2021. In addition, after assessing the local conditions, it has been asked to conduct an online examination.

It is written in the letter that the entire country is currently facing the second wave of the COVID-19 epidemic. In such a situation, the health and safety of all is of paramount importance. Because of this, the offline examinations in May are being postponed. Online examinations are allowed, provided the universities are prepared in all ways. Along with this, they should follow the guidelines and instructions issued by the Central Government, State Governments, Ministry of Education, and UGC.
