Nagpur University to postpone exam, courtesy teachers’ strike

Nagpur News: Nagpur University has convened an emergent meeting today of its Board of Examinations (BOE) after members allegedly forced administration led by VC Vilas Sapkal the convene the meeting, sources told Nagpur Today.

According to sources, in this meeting the timetable of examination may be changed owing to the pressure of teachers who are on Strike.

Some universities in the state have already postponed the final examination of degree courses following the stir by the Maharashtra Federation of College and University Teachers Organisation.

The universities which have participated in the boycott include University of Mumbai, University of Pune, Shivaji University, Kolhapur University and the Sant Gadgebaba University in Amravati. exams.

Interestingly in Nagpur, both pro-VC Mahesh Yenkie and Ramteke had categorically ruled out any change in the exam schedule, to ensure students did not face problems. They had even said that they were ready to conduct the exam in any eventuality. Sadly, these two never raise their voice if the BOE or VC were taking wrong decisions.

In October last year, NU was forced to defer all engineering and home science exams, affecting over 60,000 students and disrupting their entire schedule. Even in this case, both pro-VC and CoE had vehemently opposed deferment of these exams, but both BOE and VC took this ‘illegal’ decision after local politicians and education barons pressurised them so that their illegally admitted students could appear in exams.

In Thursday’s meet as well, NU administration is most likely to postpone the exams as all BOE members were unanimous that the stir called by MFUCTO should be a success, sources added.
