[Final Exams amid COVID-19] Karnataka HC asks VTU to examine if "Special Chance Exams" can be conducted Online

The Karnataka High Court today declined to pass any order for the online conduct of University final year exams in Karnataka, in view of submissions made by VTU that they did not have the infrastructure and manpower in place for conducting online exams.

Instead, Justice Sunil Dutt Yadav asked the VTU to explore if "special chance exams" to be conducted for students who may not be able to appear for the final exams can be conducted in online mode.

The University is expected to file a detailed affidavit on this matter, after due consultation with experts, by September 25, when the Court will hear the matter next.
