The exams for the final year students, that are supposed to take place in offline or physical mode are being altered. The new proposed examination dates are from February 7, 2022. The exams for all other students, from other different programs, have already been conducted successfully as per the schedule.

The semester-end examination for postgraduate students at the GU as well as for those in GU-affiliated colleges will also be conducted as per the proposed schedule in offline mode.

Meanwhile, the University in the circular stated, “In a partial modification to the circular dated August 9, 2021, relating to academic terms applicable to UG/PG general education programmes for the academic year 2021-22, the term break shall be from January 24 to January 29, instead of February 9, to February 13,”.

Goa University administration in another circular listed the provision for special examinations for the students who missed one or more papers due to some listed unforeseen reasons. These include the inability to appear for exams due to illness, COVID infection or family members being COVID positive, restrictions due to statewide curfew or lack of public transport.

Such students would be allowed to appear for the special exams that would be conducted by the GU administration. However, any such date has not been proposed by the administration so far.
