The University Grants Commission (UGC) has released the academic calendar and exam guidelines for the 2021-22 session. It states that all universities will have to conduct the final year and semester examinations before 31 August 2021. UGC has also given instructions regarding new admission.
According to the guidelines, in the admission of undergraduate graduates in 2021, the order of the Supreme Court has been asked to be followed. Under this, admission will be started after the release of 12th results of CBSE, ICSE and other state boards i.e. from August 1. The new academic session will start from 1 October 2021.
All the universities have been instructed to finish the admission process by 30 September 2021. Time has been given till October 31 to fill the vacant seats. For some reason, if the result of any board of 12th is delayed, then the new session can be started from October 18.
Understand the complete guideline in 4 points
In view of the corona infection, the university will not be able to charge the cancellation fee from the students who cancel the admission till October 31.
A student who cancels the admission till December 31 can be charged a maximum of Rs 1,000 as processing fee.
The UGC has left it to the states to decide whether the session will run online or offline.
The academic calendar and guidelines have been issued after consultation with educational bodies like NICTE, NCTE, BCI, NMC, DCI, NIC, PCI and AYUSH.
What did UGC say on CBSE, ICSE and state boards?
The state boards of some states have already released the 12th board results. These include states like Himachal Pradesh and Bihar, while the process is going on in many states. It is expected that most of the state boards will release the 12th board results before July 31. UGC has expressed hope that CBSE and ICSE boards will also release the results by the stipulated time.
