University Grants Commission guidelines 2020: The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has given a nod to the UGC to conduct university exams. “The Home Ministry in a letter to Union Higher Education Secretary, today permitted conduct of examinations by Universities and Institutions,” said a statement by the MHA.

The University Grants Commission has released the new guidelines according to which all universities have to conduct the final term examination. Moreover, universities and institutions can now conduct other examinations also as per the recent orders released by the UGC.

These orders have been supported by the Union Ministry of Health & Family Welfare. The final year exams are compulsory to be conducted by the universities as per Academic Calendar for the Universities, and as per the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP).
