Talking about the final examinations of PG examinations, the VC said for the next academic year, the university will also think about conducting the examinations away from the home centre.

 

For instance, PG students studying in a particular college will have to write their exam in a different centre in order to maintain transparency.

 

"Calcutta University is trying to strengthen the examination system by making it fair and following a path of discipline," the VC added.
