Hyderabad University is all set to conduct its nation-wide entrance exams for admission to various courses in the offline mode between September 24 and 26.

Hyderabad University will be holding its nation-wide entrance examination for admissions to various post-graduate and research courses between September 24 and 26, it informed on Wednesday.

University of Hyderabad Vice Chancellor Appa Rao Podile said that they were going ahead with the entrance exam after Supreme Court gave a nod to holding JEE and NEET exams as per schedule in September.

UoH had suspended all classes back on March 15 to check the spread of Covid-19.

Now, over 62,000 candidates across India who are seeking admission will take part in the offline entrance exams which will be held in 38 exam centres across India.

The VC said the varsity was planning to complete admissions and start off classes by the first week of November.

How is Hyderabad University planning to resume classes?

As per the press release issued by the varsity, around 2,000 post-graduate students in the ongoing batch would be starting classes online from Thursday.

Since some students in remote locations are facing internet connectivity issues, and the university has a guiding principle of leaving no student behind, online learning would primarily be in the asynchronous mode, the VC said.

A learning management system has been installed for this online semester at UoH. This can be used by faculty and students and by shoring up the information communication technology (ICT)infrastructure at the departments and schools, he said.

Measures taken by Hyderabad University

The UoH vice chancellor said that Hyderabad university was the first public university in the country to frame a high-powered task force to oversee the institution’s return to academic activities in the Covid-19 era.

The task forced has recommended a phased return of around 500 research scholars in the science schools who work in wet labs and carry out crucial experimental research.

Professor Vinod Pavarala, who is the chairman of the task force highlighted a few other measures taken:

  • A digital access grant (DAG) has been sanctioned for disadvantaged students
  • Fee payment during semester registration has been deferred
  • MPhil and PhD students have been given a time extension to submit their theses
  • The UoH alumni association said it would try to raise funds to help needy students
