VTU exams postponed: Visvesvaraya Technological University has postponed its examinations scheduled to be held on December 20th, 2019. The decision to postpone the VTU exams was taken due to the curfew being imposed in several parts of Mangalore and section 144 being implemented in Bengaluru, along with many other parts of Karnataka.
This news came on the late night of December 19th, as VTU issued a notification on its website www.vtu.ac.in. Students can view the VTU exam postponed December 2019 notice under the “Circular & Notices” section on the website. A copy of the notification can also be viewed below.
The VTU notification reads, “In view of the curfew and declaration for holiday of schools and colleges in Mangalore, VTU exams scheduled on December 20th have been postponed. The revised time table will be announced soon.”
Until late evening of yesterday (December 19th), VTU officials as well as the Bangalore Police department had ensured that all Educational Institutions and transportation facilities will remain functional. The Police department implored the students not to panic. But thats not the case anymore as the Curfew in Mangalore caused all VTU exams to be postponed statewide.
The present scenario highlights the students’ anxiousness as the ongoing unrest throughout the country puts the students in a tricky situation. The Government and Police departments are ensuring the public of safety and functional services but the protests have certainly caused panic among students as to how will they reach their exam centers.
Its only obvious that VTU students are having doubt about their exam being postponed as many Universities across the country have postponed their exams including Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of Technology and many others.
The postponement of VTU exams will only put students’ whole study plan and training/vacation plans in jeopardy since most of them come from different parts of the State.
Here is the notification for VTU exam postponement:
So, for the students asking Is tomorrow’s VTU exam postponed or not? Yes. For December 20th, the exams have been postponed. But as for the VTU exams on December 21st onward, VTU officially has not released any notification stating the postponement or rescheduling.
A notice about the exams to be held on Saturday and Monday is expected soon from VTU.
The VTU earlier had postponed and rescheduled B.E. 2015 scheme exam for the subject code/ title (15**35) due to the overlapping. The said exam which was to be held on 1st January will now be conducted on 29th January, 2020, the official notice reads.
