Lucknow University Annual Exams Being Delayed By Two Weeks

Lucknow: The annual examinations of Lucknow University are to be delayed by at least two weeks. According to the academic calendar, the annual examinations should generally begin from March 1. However, with the present preparations, the date has gone for a toss. Thrashing the deadline, the exams are likely to begin from March 15, 2011. Yashvir Tyagi, Controller of Exams, Lucknow University (LU), has said that the university is trying its best to begin the exams from second week of March. He also added that preparations are in full swing.

As per sources, the list of centres where the examinations would be conducted was declared on Wednesday i.e. on February 23, 2011. Students would take up the examination at 48 centres, one down from previous year's count of 49. The one college that has been ousted out is Swatantra Girls' Degree College. However, the college is de-affiliated from academic session 2011-12, but it's not been included in the list of centres.

In addition, the sources have also informed that the examination section claimed that students data card have already been filled up. The preparations of admit card is underway. With just a week left for next month to begin, the university is still not able to declare the confirmed dates. Highly placed sources, however, revealed that the examinations would not start before March 28. Moreover, it has also come to light that setting of examination papers and moderating work is still not completed. This is perhaps, a major challenge for university.

Meanwhile, a majority of the colleges has complained that they have not yet received the examination fund from university. According to a statement issued by Lucknow University Associated Colleges Teachers' Association President, Moulindu Mishra, if the preparations are really going on, the students will not suffer. The university should take care of examination fund and should de-centralize the evaluation work for better results.
