SPPU Exam 2023: The Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) has now postponed the second-year engineering courses following protests by students. It must be noted that SPPU students have been demanding the varsity to postpone their end-semester exams that were earlier scheduled to be held between January 25 to January 31, 2023.
As per the new announcement, the SPPU Semester Exams 2023 will now be conducted from January 30 to Februrary 7. In an official notification, the varsity said that the new timetable will be uploaded soon on the university's website. The decision is applicable to all affiliated engineering colleges in Pune, Ahmednagar, and Nashik districts.
The official notification also urged the principal and the college examination officer to direct the stakeholders regarding the rescheduling of the exams. The students as well as the activists from the National Students' Union of India’s Pune chapter have applauded the decision and said that they are relieved to some extent by the university's decision.
"The in-semester exam carries questions from the first two units in each subject and is conducted by the individual colleges. This ended on January 20. Now the end-semester examination which is based on the remaining four units was supposed to start on January 25. There was hardly any way for us to study the vast syllabus in just four days. Everybody knows that the majority of students study during preparatory breaks which are normally one month long," said a student.
"We are happy that the university took cognizance of the students' protest and postponed the exams," said Bhushan Ranbhare, president, of the NSUI Pune chapter, as reported by TOI.
