In the wake of increasing threat of Covid-19, the state governments had to shut down schools, colleges, educational institutions as a precautionary measure against the deadly virus. The Covid-19 pandemic has gripped the nation, especially since mid-march, affecting the education of thousands of students.
There is a sense of fear and panic among the parents and students as well, and the state governments are taking all the necessary steps to curb the spread, which includes shutting down educational institutes, vacating hostels, postponing entrance examinations, convocation ceremonies, etc.
The education of students has been affected and this emergency situation has called for the educational institutes around the globe to evolve, innovate and shift their operations to online learning. The need of the hour is to adapt to the situation and leave no stone unturned to help the passionate students fulfil their dreams.
Top educational institutions in India, including Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT-D), Delhi University (DU), Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI), Netaji Subhas University of Technology (NSIT), etc., have stopped their offline operations and shifted their focus to online learning. Bharati Vidyapeeth University is no exception, as the institute also followed the suit and ensured that the education of students remains unaffected.
Having entered into the fourth phase of Covid-19 lockdown, institutes across the country are making sure that the academic sessions are not compromised. In the wake of increasing number of positive cases of Covid-19, Bharati Vidyapeeth University has delayed all the term-end examinations of all programs at least till 15th July, 2020.
Likewise, many other institutes are delaying the exams and beefing-up their online presence, making it easier for the students to get admissions and watch the space for important announcements during the lockdown. It’s quite difficult to predict how long it is going to take before the situation improves. Till then, it will be important to exercise all the possible options to keep the scope wide open.
