Students to be barred to sit in exam failing minimum attendance
Bhubaneswar: From now onwards college students having less than 75% attendance cannot sit for annual examinations. The Higher Education department has written a letter to all colleges of the State including private ones in this regard.
Higher Education Secretary Saswat Mishra stated in a letter to college Principals that students having more than 75% attendance will be only eligible to appear for the annual examination. In case any student fails to be present in classes for the required period, he/she will be asked to attend extra classes, the letter read.
College Principals were also directed to create awareness among students about the 75% attendance norm much ahead of the annual examination.
