A fake notice dated 2 July 2020 has made its way through various websites and WhatsApp groups.
The notice with the University of Delhi as its header and a forged signature of the Dean of Examinations states that the 2nd and 4th semester exams for the students of UG courses and SOL will be taking place in the coming first week of August considering the current public health scenario. The notice also states that the method of the examination will be online based or traditional offline based. The reason mentioned in the notification for conducting the examination is that if no examination is taken then it will deteriorate the performance of the regular students with good grades in the final year.
As per the notice, this was the result of the meeting held on the 27 June 2020 in the presence of the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Delhi, the Dean of examination and the members of the examination committee.
The notice also includes a link to the official website of DU and states that the date sheet of the exams will be uploaded there by the third week of July’20. The notice urges the students to keep an eye on the websites of their colleges/departments/faculties/SOL/NCWEB.
