DIMAPUR, JUN 18 (NPN) | Publish Date: 6/18/2020 1:39:42 PM IST

Since the University Grants Commission (UGC) and the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) have not given any guideline to promote the final year students, the All Nagaland College Students’ Union (ANCSU) and Nagaland University (NU) have agreed that NU alone promoting the final year students without conducting exams could nullify such degree certificate beyond the state of Nagaland.

In a press release, ANCSU president Vimeyiekho Vitso and general secretary Imnameren N Jamir said that the union and the university have “mutually agreed” that the state government should, therefore, ensure the safe return and stay of students to their respective institution districts. 

According to ANCSU, this was decided at a meeting convened by NU Controller of Examination at the University Headquarters, Lumami on June 16, 2020.

After ensuring the safe return and stay of the students within a stipulated time, the union said NU would notify the exam routine (minimum 20 days ahead from the date of exam commencement). 

ANCSU said it was also agreed that all the 52 exam centres conducting end semester exam for the 7500 undergraduate final year students under NU should properly sanitize the exam halls/rooms and follow safety guidelines. Autonomous colleges and universities have also been appealed to follow such remedial measures.

At the meeting, ANCSU highlighted UGC guidelines (April 29, 2020) and proposed that the promoted 2nd and 4th semester students be given a chance to improve their grades. NU officials agreed to be put up with the University Authority for favourable decision.

Further, ANCSU said the NU has taken note of its appeal for proper dissemination of information regarding conduct of exams to the students and stakeholders of the affiliated colleges. 

As per the UGC guidelines, the ANCSU said it requested the University and colleges to establish a cell for handling student grievances related to examinations and academic activities.

Since assent for promoting the final year students without examination has not been received till date from UGC and MHRD, the ANCSU has appealed to the final year students to continue preparing for the end semester exam. 

ANCSU has, however, express hope that UGC/MHRD would thoroughly asses the prevailing situation in the country and issue guidelines in the greater interest of humanity. ANCSU said it has also apprised the state chief secretary and the department of higher education for necessary action.
