ATKT papers should be held alongside final year exams in Sep-Oct, V-Cs’ committee recommends

Musab Qazi

Mumbai: The pending repeat exams for allowed-to-keep-term (ATKT) students in Maharashtra’s colleges should be held alongside the final year exams in the months of September and October, a committee of vice-chancellors recommended on Friday (September 4).

The committee was appointed by the state government to prepare modalities for the exams following the Supreme Court’s judgment against the state’s decision to grant degrees to students without their regular as well as ATKT exams. On Friday, the committee, which includes V-Cs of six non-agricultural universities and directors of higher and technical education, submitted a report containing guidelines to conduct the exams.

The committee also suggested that the universities can conduct the final year examinations using a wide set of methods including multiple-choice questions (MCQs), optical mark recognition (OMR), home assignments and open-book tests. The suggestion comes a day after the governor and chancellor of all state universities Bhagat Singh Koshyari opposed assignments and open-book tests, insisting that the exams be conducted through MCQs and OMR. State higher and technical education minister Uday Samant, however, had favoured considering all forms of evaluation in order to simplify the long-awaited exams.

Other recommendations by the committee include completing the examination process by October 31, providing assistance to differently-abled students to take the tests and allowing students to take the exams from their homes, either online or through pen-and-paper mode, as far as possible.

A day earlier the governor had directed the universities to begin their practical exams by September 15 and complete the entire examination process including declaration of results by October 31.

The universities to convene meetings of their respective boards of examinations and academic councils to decide details of their examinations. The universities would then approach the state’s Disaster Management Committee for its approval. Subsequently, the state would apprise UGC of the pandemic situation and modalities of final year exams
