No UG & PG Exams In Odisha Now: Saswat Mishra
Bhubaneswar: The Higher Education Department on Monday said that it has no plans to conduct undergraduate (UG) and postgraduate (PG) examinations in Odisha at the moment.
In a letter to all degree college principals and university vice-chancellors, commissioner-cum-secretary, Higher Education, Saswat Mishra said that though online classes are being conducted across the state in view of the COVID-19 pandemic, several students are deprived of the facility due to different reasons. Under such circumstances, it is not desirable to hold UG and PG examinations.
