Hyderabad: Osmania University (OU) is all set to conduct the undergraduate final semester examinations for its engineering, pharmacy, BHM&CT, BEd, BCA, DPEd BPEd, and BCT&CA courses from September 17 amidst strict Covid-19 safety protocols.

Students have been advised to carry personal sanitiser and must maintain physical distancing in the exam halls. Candidates experiencing cough, cold, fever, etc. must inform the exam chief superintendent.

OU has asked chief superintendents of colleges where exam centres are located to strictly adhere to Covid safety protocols, sanitise the rooms/premises before and after every exam session. College authorities were instructed to thermal screen all candidates entering the college premises.

The university said it will conduct another special examination, as and when feasible, for such students who are not able to appear for all examinations of the semester/year for reasons of health or other unavoidable situations.

The colleges, according to the university, can hold second internal test, if not conducted already, in online/offline or blended mode. Likewise, the university entrusted the job of conducting practical examination in offline/online mode to the respective colleges. The colleges were also given the provision of conducting project/seminar/internships viva in online mode.
