"In view of measures being taken to curb COVID-19, exams only for final year/semester of universities will be held. The order in this regard was issued by the higher education department on Monday evening," a public relations official said.
All annual and semester exams of correspondence (non-regular) students of universities will also be held after the lockdown ends, he said.
