The Islamic University authorities have given approval to start the final examinations of the Honours-Masters online or in person from September 12.
However, during the exams, the university dorms will remain closed.
The decision was taken on Saturday at an emergency meeting chaired by Vice-Chancellor (VC) Prof Sheikh Abdus Salam, said acting registrar of the university Ataur Rahman.
He said that the regular Honours-Masters finals, retakes, partial or remaining course finals as well as viva or practical exams will be held online or in person from September 12.
The departments which have completed the terminal exams or do not have such batches, can take the examinations of other batches. However, no department can take more than one batch test the same day. Students of those departments willing to take in person exams without having dorm facilities would be able attend exams physically, the registrar said.
In this regard, Pro VC Prof Mahbubur Rahman said that the departments will be able to take the exams of different academic years physically on the basis of priority. Students won’t get residential facilities. So, the departments can also conduct online exams if they want.
