    New academic year 2020- 21

    Universities and colleges may complete their admission process by the end of October and the new academic session for first-year students will likely begin from November 1, according to draft guidelines on the academic year prepared by higher education regulator University Grants Commission (UGC).

    The commission’s draft guidelines have suggested that educational institutions adopt a six-day week instead of the current five-day week and also curtail vacations to make up for lost time and ensure they get their final results on time, an official aware of the developments said on condition of anonymity.

    The UGC had earlier created an academic calendar that suggested that the admission process for the first year of Undergraduate and Post graduate students be completed by 31st August. For first year students it was proposed to start the academic session 2020-2021 from September 1, 2020. However, in view of the circumstanced, the commission has decided to issue a revised calendar,” the official quoted above said.
