The meeting discussed that since many things were uncertain and a large number of students had also requested to continue online classes as it was better for them to study rather than wasting their time at home under the prevailing situation, it would be in their interest to continue online classes in order to avoid wastage of academic year, which would also create problems for them to get jobs. The meeting also decided that decision regarding exams and assessment of the students would be taken later according to the circumstances at that time. The meeting decided that assignments could be given to the students however practical sessions with relevant module would be conducted later.
