Earlier, several students and teachers of Delhi University had earlier raised concerns regarding the conduct of exams amid the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Last month, the Delhi University Teachers' Association (DUTA) had written to the varsity's acting vice-chancellor PC Joshi demanding suspension of classes and cancellation of exams since many students and teachers have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
The varsity said on Thursday said it will take stock of the exam schedule, amid demands from students asking for exams to be deferred because of spiking COVID-19 cases in the country. The University has also warned against fake information circulating on social media.
