Earlier, the Uttar Pradesh Government had said that only final year exams would be held in undergraduate courses as it issued guidelines for annual and semester examinations in state and private universities for the academic year 2020-21 that has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma, who also holds the higher education portfolio, said that in the universities, the students will be promoted to the second year where the first-year exams in undergraduate courses were not held. However, based on the second-year exams in 2022, the marks for their first year will be decided.
