UGC guidelines on new academic session from November leaves colleges, students confused

Wednesday, 23 September 2020

A day after the University Grants Commission (UGC) released guidelines for the new academic calendar for first year batch of the 2020-21 academic year, students and colleges in the city were unsure about the implementation of the new dates.As per the latest schedule shared by UGC, the new academic session for the current first year batch should commence in the first week of November, however, going by the previous schedule, many colleges have already started their first-year batches online.







“The previous UGC guidelines had scheduled start of the new academic year for all batches as September 2020, so colleges did exactly that and started lectures online. The University of Mumbai had also suggested the same so now we don’t know how these new guidelines will be implemented,” said Marie Fernandes, principal St Andrew’s College, Bandra.MU had conducted admissions to first year undergraduate course batches in July and August months and most colleges had completed filling all their vacant seats by the end of August itself.
