In the same notice, the university has confirmed that the online examinations and evaluation process for all courses will be wrapped up by July 31, 2020, in order to advance with the next academic session.

JNU had asked all its students to return to their homes and vacate the hostels and campus premises in accordance with the guidelines issued by the government. Since not all students have the facilities to give exams online from their hometowns, the university has allowed these students to appear for exams once the university is open.
