The Board of Technical Education, Delhi has cancelled all the examinations for the students pursuing various Diploma courses considering the COVID-19 pandemic. The University has issued an official notice informing that all the students of different semesters will be promoted based on their internal assessment and previous year’s performance.
As per the latest report, about 50 percent weightage will be offered based on the internal marks of the students. The remaining 50 percent of weightage will be given to the students based on their marks acquired in the previous year’s final exams. The student who is willing to improve his or her marks has a chance to take part in the exams. The concerned authorities haven’t announced the schedule of these exams.
The candidates who have compartment or back in any of the last years’ semesters must clear that exam post the officials hold the exams in the future, as per the new official notice. The candidates who have a compartment in any of the previous year semesters and finished their course duration will be offered a 1-year extension to qualify their diploma for all semesters. The official notice further states, ‘these issues with the prior approval of the competent authority.’
The Government of Delhi offers 3-year Diploma courses to all the students in technical education via different Industrial Training Institutes [ITIs] and some other affiliated polytechnic colleges. In recent times, the Government of Delhi said the Supreme Court that all the exams across various universities in Delhi have been cancelled. Manish Sisodia, the Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister of Delhi has instructed ‘all Delhi State Universities to cancel all written online and offline semester examinations including final year exams.’
