Hyderabad University will be holding its nation-wide entrance examination for admissions to various post-graduate and research courses between September 24 and 26.
University of Hyderabad Vice Chancellor Appa Rao Podile said that they were going ahead with the entrance exam after Supreme Court gave a nod to holding JEE and NEET exams as per schedule in September.
UoH had suspended all classes back on March 15 to check the spread of Covid-19.
Now, over 62,000 candidates across India who are seeking admission will take part in the offline entrance exams which will be held in 38 exam centres across India.
The VC said the varsity was planning to complete admissions and start off classes by the first week of November.
Since some students in remote locations are facing internet connectivity issues, and the university has a guiding principle of leaving no student behind, online learning would primarily be in the asynchronous mode, the VC said.
A learning management system has been installed for this online semester at UoH. This can be used by faculty and students and by shoring up the information communication technology (ICT) infrastructure at the departments and schools, he said.
Measures taken by Hyderabad University
- A digital access grant (DAG) has been sanctioned for disadvantaged students
- Fee payment during semester registration has been deferred
- MPhil and PhD students have been given a time extension to submit their theses
- The UoH alumni association said it would try to raise funds to help needy students
