LUCKNOW || As India steps up vigil against the Novel Coronavirus pandemic, Lucknow University will enter the exam mode on Tuesday keeping a very high level of alertness in mind.
The University had sometime back announced strict precautions during exams against the coronavirus spread. The University administration is ensuring all benches, chairs, doorknobs, handrails are sanitised using alcohol-based sanitizers.
Students have been asked to maintain a safe distance in the examination hall. They will be positioned one metre apart. Those who have travelled to COVID 19 affected countries recently will have a separate seating space.
Unlike 40 in a room, this year one room will have only 20, doubling the number of rooms required.
Rooms will be sanitized and dustbins and tissues will be offered. Durgesh Srivastava, spokesperson, Lucknow University has been quoted saying, “We will take measures to mitigate any chances of spread of any infection.”
Notably, even the PhD entrance examination is starting as well. Over 3000 students are expected to appear for the annual and PhD entrance exam on the first day.
Barring examination, all educational activities stand suspended till March 22 on directions of the state government.
