#StudentLivesMatter trends on twitter after UGC issues revised guidelines for conducting exams


#StudentLivesMatter trends on twitter after UGC (University Grants Commission) issued revised guidelines regarding conduct of terminal, semesters and final examination by Universities and Institution.

UGC and HRD Ministry decision regarding conduct of exams didn’t go too well with the students. Students took to their social media raising concerns and opposing the decision. In no time #StudentLivesMatter started trending on twitter.

After 4 months of shutdown of all the Institutions which resulted to postponement of examination, the UGC and HRD Ministry has finally decided to conduct exams. The guidelines read,   

1. Mode of Terminal Semester/ Final Year Examinations (2019-20)

The universities are required to complete the examinations by the end of
September, 2020 in offline (pen & paper)/ online/ blended (online + offline) mode
following the prescribed protocols/ guidelines related to COVID-19 pandemic.

2. Provision of Examination through Special Chance

In case a student of terminal semester/ final year is unable to appear in the examination
conducted by the University for whatsoever the reason(s) may be, he/she may be given
opportunity to appear in special examinations for such course(s)/ paper(s), which may be conducted by the university as and when feasible, so that the student is not put to any inconvenience/ disadvantage. The above provision shall be applicable only for the current academic session 2019-20 as a one-time measure.

3. Backlog of Papers in Respect of Terminal Semester(s)/ Final Year Students

The students of terminal semester/ final year students having backlog should
compulsorily be evaluated by conducting examinations in offline (pen & paper)/ online/

commencement of next academic session, every university/ institution has to ensure
that it is prepared in all respects to carry out the academic activities following necessary protocols/guidelines directions/advisories issued by the Central/State Governments and MHRD/ UGC from time to time, in view of COVID-19.

Coronavirus cases in India has crossed 7 lakh mark with more then 20,000 deaths. The terror and fear among people is very prevalent during these unprecedented times. Students are in no mood to go to their examination centre risking their health. Netizens are completely against this decision.

I really don’t understand what they think of these numbers! Ranking third all over the world and still their concern is final year exams ! #FirstparliamentThenexams

It’s such a risk that MHA has allowed Universities and Institutions to conduct exams. You are not allowed to risk lives of students. While per day cases are going more then 20,000.. Please cancel the exams.

India being the third most affected county by Covid-19 after USA and Brazil, it will be be important whether or not the UGC and HRD Ministry considers the plea of the students.
