Dates revised following protests by students
Bengaluru: In the wake of protests by students, the Department of Pre-University Education (DPUE) has revised the dates of the midterm examination for II PU students.
It will be held from Dec. 9 to 23, and held simultaneously for I and II year PU students.
The DPUE had initially announced that midterm exam would be held from Nov. 29 to Dec. 10, as they feared that the State would be see a third wave of COVID-19. However, II PU students were up in arms against this on the grounds that teachers had not completed the syllabi.
The Department has also decided not to conduct centralised evaluation. A circular issued on Thursday stated that the evaluation would be conducted at the College-level. Marks had to be uploaded on the SATS platform. While the question paper for II PU students would be sent by the Department, I PU students would get the papers set by their faculty members.
