As we all know that final year students have to write exams throughout India , UGC has clearly mentioned the exams can be conducted through online/blended/offline modes. But recently Tamilnadu government had announced that the exams will be held offline in exam centers which will pose as a major threat to the students.

Students stepping out of their house and coming in contact with numerous other students itself will put them and their families at risk of contracting COVID 19.Moreover many students live in different parts of the country and many NRI/FN students have already left to their respective home countries .Thousands of final year students have also started their jobs in various places .NRI/FN students who have left cannot immediately travel back to India due to lack of flights. In this situation , asking students to travel back to Tamilnadu to give exams will not only put their lives at risk but is also practically very tough.

Given the above mentioned issues, the government should conduct exams online or atleast provide alternatives for students who cannot attend offline exams. The Tamilnadu government like other state governments of Maharashtra, Karanataka etc should also give the liberty of conducting exams through whichever mode best suitable for a particular University/college rather than generalizing the decision ignoring the plight of thousands of students.
