NEP 2020: Kashmir University to issue advance date-sheets for UG exams


SRINAGAR, APRIL 27: The University of Kashmir has decided to issue advance date sheets for various undergraduate programs in a bid to streamline the academic calendar.


This new initiative has been conceived to bring the examination calendar back on track in the minimum possible time, and ensure timely completion of UG programs.


NEP 2020:

Controller of Examinations, University of Kashmir has issued a circular to this effect. The preparation of the calendar would enable the holding of the respective examinations within the time frames prescribed and the timely completion of various courses. It may be recalled that the delay in holding examinations in the past often led to courses being stretched beyond the prescribed timelines leading to the loss of valuable academic time.



The present move comes days after the government decided to fully implement the National Education Policy NEP 2020 from the current academic session and shift to a uniform academic calendar that will be synchronized with the national academic calendar.
