By TIOL News Service

NEW DELHI, MAY 04, 2021: THE Education Ministry on Monday wrote to all centrally-funded educational institutions asking them to postpone all offline examinations scheduled in May due to the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The letter addressed to all the heads of Central Universities, Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs) stated that all online examinations may continue as per schedule.

Higher Education Secretary Mr Amit Khare said the decision will be reviewed in the first week of June.

The institutions have been further advised to ensure that if anyone in the institution needs any assistance it should be provided immediate possible help so that he or she comes out of the distress at the earliest. All Institutions have to encourage eligible persons to go for vaccination and ensure that everyone follows COVID-19 appropriate behaviour to remain safe,” the letter said.

The government has already postponed the Class 12 Board examination and scrapped the Class 10 examination. The National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) exams for medical aspirants have been pushed to August while NEET-Postgraduate (NEET PG 2021) will not be held before August 31.
