Higher education activities have been conducted online since March due to the onset of the pandemic

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has allowed private universities to take practical classes and examinations with special consideration.

UGC member Professor Muhammad Alamgir confirmed this information to the media.

He said the vice-chancellors of the private universities had a virtual meeting with the UGC on Tuesday. This decision was taken at that meeting to save the students from future troubles.

The authorities are yet to share the details on how health safety guidelines regarding Covid-19 will be maintained during the classes and exams.

The commission on March 23 initially urged all universities to continue classes online to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

On May 7, UGC published a guideline on conducting courses online in light of the prevailing coronavirus pandemic, including teaching, taking exams, and their assessment as well as admission for private universities.

As per the Commission's instructions, online classes on the unfinished syllabus of the courses were to continue in the current semester as in the previous semesters, but practical classes for all laboratory-based courses will have to be completed in the classroom once the situation becomes normal.
