KU to issue UG 6th semester date sheet in coming days

SRINAGAR: After issuing the schedule for the penultimate semester examination, authorities at the University of Kashmir are now issuing the date sheet for the undergrad 6th semester examination in coming day.
The KU recently issued the schedule for UG 5th semester examinations scheduled from December 18 till January 11.
The date sheet for only 5th semester for now had raised apprehensions among the 6th semester college students, who feared of losing a chance to appear in the 2020 KU entrance examinations in case the 6th semester examination got delayed.
Controller Examinations KU, Prof Farooq Ahmad Mir told Kashmir Reader that they were issuing the date sheet for the 6th semester examination in the coming days and hoped the results of both the semesters will be out by the time the entrance examinations begin.
Over a question on the proposed joint examination of 5th and 6th semesters, Prof Mir said, “We will issue the date sheet for 6th semester halfway down the 5th semester examination, so it will anyway be a joint examination”.
The Controller Examinations said the joint examination had been specifically scheduled to enable the outgoing college students to appear in the upcoming entrance test.
“We will also declare the results of the two semesters by then,” he added.
The KU had proposed combined 5th and 6th semester examinations in August this year to enable them appear in the proposed second entrance test, which was scheduled in November.
However, due to the lockdown in Kashmir since the abrogation of Article 370 on August 5, the combined semester examination was delayed prompting the KU administration to cancel the November shift of admissions.
A top official at KU informed that there will be only the routine spring entrance test at the varsity now on.
Earlier, the Kashmir University had said the “policy decision” to hold two admissions this year had been “consciously taken for the benefit of the students”.
However, opposing the move, the Kashmir University Teachers’ Association (KUTA) had said the two admission sessions this year will rather “create an academic mess” at the KU.
