Explaining the reason behind the move, the officials said, “Despite taking their Class 10th or Class 12th exams in November, students who want to enroll in professional courses out of UT have to wait until the new academic term as those universities starts their session in July.



“Due to the November session, the precious time of students gets wasted,” said the officials.



The officials further added that the move will bring the academic session in line with the schools across.”



It was further revealed that the March to March session proposal is almost through and needs a formal order only.

The move follows the government’s decision to simultaneously implement the National Education Policy (NEP)-2020 and the Uniform Academic Calendar in the Higher Education Department (HED) starting with the current academic session.
