TU preparing to conduct exams halted by second wave of Covid-19

Tribhuvan University (TU) on Sunday issued a notice stating that the university is making preparations to conduct all the remaining examinations, which were previously postponed due to the Covid- 19 pandemic.

TU urged all the campuses to continue online classes and start the course through online medium. “We are preparing for alternative methods to conduct exams soon,” states the notice published on an official page of Tribhuvan University which is also the oldest university of the country. 

The university is yet to decide on the modality of the examination.

On April 13, after the second wave of pandemic hit Nepal, TU had postponed all the scheduled examinations of all levels.

Even last year after the government imposed a nation-wide lockdown on March 24, the examinations were postponed for over a year.

The university administrations shifted the teaching-learning activities to the virtual medium amid the pandemic. However, despite requests from the students, the university refused to hold the examinations online which led it to conduct in-person tests only after December 2020.

As the situation in the country gets worse day by day, students are concerned that the already lengthy academic session would be postponed further which would be unbearable as they have already wasted over a year during the previous lockdown.

Tribhuvan University (TU) was established in 1959 as a pioneer and single University of the entire country. Since its inception it has crossed various milestones of development and by the age of sixty years, it has become one of the largest universities in the world in terms of enrolment of the number of students and its coverage of higher education in Nepal and beyond.
