The seven-point directives were sent to the vice chancellors and registrars of all private universities on Monday

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has published guidelines for private universities on conducting laboratory-based practical classes and examinations of their final year students vowing to maintain all health safety guidelines amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The seven-point directives, signed by Director (Private University) Dr Md Fakhrul Islam, were sent to the vice chancellors and registrars of all private universities today, said a press release issued in this regard on Monday.

The directives include not conducting more than one class or exam in a day, maintaining the health safety guidelines issued by WHO, not allowing more than 10 students in a class or exam hall, and to conduct oral tests online. 

The UGC asked the private universities to ensure that no student should enter the campus more than 30 minutes before their exam or class and leave within 30 minutes of finishing their respective exam or class.

The regulatory agency for higher education also asked the universities to ensure six feet distance while conducting practical classes and exams.

If any of the students, teachers, officials or staff members gets infected with Covid-19, the respective university has to take the responsibility of that person and bear all medical costs, it added.
