Universities to finish exams by April 15 from coming academic year

All universities in the State other than Anna University will finish their examinations by April 15 from the coming academic year to provide a uniform system for students, a meeting of Vice – Chancellors decided.

At the meeting chaired by Higher Education Minister K. Ponmudy and attended by Higher Education Secretary K. Ganesan, the Vice – Chancellors expressed their views ahead of the demands for grants to be presented in the budget session of the Assembly.

Mr. Ponmudy said that in view of the difficulties encountered by students owing to different schedules, all universities had been instructed to complete their examinations by April 15 and publish the results by May 30.

He said the government would also table the Bill on the creation of a unitary University, comprising constituent colleges of Anna University, announced last year in the current Assembly session.

The issue of converting certain colleges into unitary universities would be resolved soon.
