Anna varsity to give students a last chance to finish course

The Anna University has decided to permit students who have arrears and have exhausted the maximum duration as per regulations, one last chance to complete the course.

In August, the Higher Education Department had issued a circular that candidates from the University’s undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, who had arrears, would not be allowed to take exams any longer.

The circular said that in order to accommodate just a handful of students with arrears, the University had to allocate nearly two months for semester exams.

This not only ate into the vacation time of students but those who wished to take up internships could not do so either, the officials had said.

However, the affected students had repeatedly made representations that they be given one more chance to complete the course.

The Office of the Controller of Examination, in a release on Thursday, said the University had decided to accommodate students of university departments admitted in the academic year 2000 onwards (both UG and PG under full time and part-time mode) and students of affiliated colleges and those admitted during the academic year 2001, (third semester onwards) and 2002 (first semester onwards) and currently in autonomous colleges including distance education, a final chance. “No further extension of time will be given to the students from this category on any account,” the release added.

A notification would be displayed on the university website www.annauniv.edu and coe1.annauniv.edu.

Students must register their names in the latter website. After the registration process, the schedule of examination would be published in aucoeannauniv.edu, the release added.
