'UP tech university final year online exams not before mid-July'
LUCKNOW [Maha Media]: The final year exams for technical university students would be held in online mode not before mid-July, said an official.
The technical education department is also working on developing a software that can work on mobile along with desktop and laptops, said secretary, technical education, Alok Kumar.
"At present, we are trying for a system where students can appear from their homes. Still, if students face connectivity issues they may visit a cyber cafe to take the test," read a tweet by Kumar. On complaints regarding many engineering colleges not taking online classes, Kumar asked students to share details of such institutes and he would look into it. "We will instruct institutes to run remedial classes," he said in a reply to a student who said they found it very difficult to study in online classes. A student, Shashwat Chauhan asked Kumar to consider the problems faced by those students who were living in villages and unable to take classes due to connectivity issues.
