The officials said adequate time will be given to the students to prepare after the second semester exams ended.
The initial date for the first semester exams was December 7. Following the inclement weather and the consequent floods, the university rescheduled the exams to December 15. The University plans to hold the exams through the week without a break and end on December 21.
The first semester exams for affiliated colleges in other districts would be held as per schedule.
