Bangalore University’s calendar of events is coming apart fast.
After postponing commencement of classes for undergraduate courses due to the delay in evaluation of the semester exam answer scripts, it is the turn of postgraduate (PG) courses to take a beating.
The university, in a press release on Saturday, announced that all the PG examinations of the third semester, scheduled to begin on January 7, have now been postponed to January 16. Sources attributed it to delay in the supply of answer scripts to the exam centres.
However, university officials denied that was the reason. Registrar (Evaluation) R.K. Somashekhar said students had sought the postponement as some competitive exams were being held at the same time.
Asked if this change of dates would affect the rest of the academic calendar, Prof. Somashekhar said: “We wanted to hold the exams within a specific date, which is being done. I don’t anticipate any more delays.”
