As per the new schedule, the last day of examinations will now be August 19, while results are scheduled to be published on August 24.
In an additional note with the schedule, the pro VC's office said that exams which had been scheduled by individual departments in advance, on August 4 and 5, may be shifted to Friday afternoon, August 18, or Saturday, August 19, as admissions tests scheduled for the Friday are set for only the morning session. Otherwise, exams for these two dates may be set at any time between August 9-21, considering there is mutual consent between department authorities and students.
