Final exams on hold since shutdown of educational institutions from March 18 last year

Dhaka University’s Deans’ committee on Wednesday recommended the university authorities to hold final examinations online which had been postponed due since the Covid-19 pandemic broke out in the country.

Confirming the matter, Pro Vice-Chancellor (academic) Prof Dr ASM Maksud Kamal said the committee recommended holding final examinations of all batches via online from July 1 if the current Covid-19 situation in Bangladesh does not improve by June.

“All the deans have been asked to formulate a strategic plan within two weeks on how the online tests will be conducted,” Maksud added.

The recommendation came from a virtual meeting of the committee comprising all the faculty deans of DU with VC Prof M Akhtaruzzaman in the chair on Wednesday evening.

Akhtaruzzaman said: “Deans of faculties recommended taking final exams online since the midterm exams have already been conducted this way. This will be finalized through re-discussion at the Academic Council  (AC) meeting of the university.”

The AC meeting is likely to be held on Thursday, according to the DU sources.

The teachers will be provided with necessary training about taking online examinations in the meantime, he claimed.

The regular classes and final exams at Dhaka University have been at a standstill since March 18 last year due to the outbreak of coronavirus. This has been a reason of immense frustration among the University’s students, especially those studying in final year.

Meanwhile, during the last one year, students participated in online classes and gave tests and midterms for their respective courses virtually.
