The second and third year lessons will begin on this date; But the new first-year course will begin on September 1st. Intermediate 6 semester students will be graded according to the internal assessment system based on the results of the previous or current semester exams. Depending on the situation, terminal semester students can be tested in July. M.Phil.6, Ph.D. students are given a maximum of 6 months and are allowed to take oral exams at video conferencing. Practical testing of any subject can also be done through video conferencing or Skype. University authorities can take steps if they wish to simplify the examination.
