Postponed exams from June 15, residential halls to stay closed, DU VC says

The Dhaka University (DU) authorities have decided to start taking in-person final examinations of various departments from July 1, unless the Covid-19 situation worsens again.

If the Covid-19 situation does worsen, then the exams will be taken online, with the exception of practical tests.

The DU authorities have also formulated a recovery plan to mitigate academic losses and session jam, DU Vice-Chancellor (VC) Prof Akhtaruzzaman told Dhaka Tribune after a meeting of the Academic Council on Tuesday.

The VC also said all postponed examinations at the honours and master’s level will be taken in person from June 15, adding that residential halls would open, and classes resume after students are vaccinated.

“Residential halls will not be open when the exams are held, and the departments and institutes concerned will contact the students about taking the exams,” he further said.

“The exam will be held following proper health guidelines.”

Semester finals, annual course finals, and practical examinations will all be held on a priority basis from July 1.

Recovery Plan

The departments conducting their courses under the semester system will be able to complete their course within four months, instead of six months, under the recovery plan. 

Similarly, 12-month courses will be shortened to eight months. 

Exam results will be published quicker than usual, and the number of test shifts have been increased, DU officials said.
