Delhi Cancels Exams For Diploma Courses, Students
The Board of Technical Education, Delhi has decided to cancel the examinations of all diploma courses in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. In this regard, the notice has been issued that all the students in all semesters of the diploma courses will be promoted to the next class without examination on the basis of their internal assessment and previous year's performance.

According to the board, the result will be prepared by combining 50 percent of the internal assessments made in the current academic session and 50 percent of the total marks obtained in the previous year's examinations.

The Board of Technical Education, Delhi has also said that if a student is not satisfied with the internal assessment and the result prepared on the previous year's performance, she/he will be given one more chance to increase his score. The examination will be conducted later for such students. Apart from this, students who have got compartment in their earlier exams or have a backlog in any subject, then they will have to pass that exam later.

The Delhi government has earlier appealed not to conduct final year or semester exams in the state, but the UGC issued a circular in July to conduct the exam. All universities and state governments opposed this decision of the UGC and a petition was also filed in the Supreme Court.

In this case, the UGC said during the hearing in the Supreme Court that the decision not to take the exam is not within the purview of the state governments. More than 150 universities had also told the UGC that they are in favour of conducting online examinations. These include Delhi University where degree courses have started from August 10. Online classes have also started in Delhi University from 10 August but the number of children in classes is very less.

Less than half of the classrooms that used to have 50 children before the Coronavirus pandemic. The biggest reason for this is the lack of mobile, laptop and internet facilities for children.
