It is a good news for the students of Nagpur University as the varsity has scrapped the controversial rule barring Allowed to Keep Term (ATKT) students from taking final examinations of degree courses in Education.
The varsity has dropped the rule and the candidates who have been ‘allowed to keep term’ can appear for final examinations of Bachelor of Education (B.Ed), Master of Education (M.Ed) and Master of Physical Education (M.P.Ed) courses.
Vice-Chancellor of Nagpur University, S.P. Kane revealed that there was an error in the previous rule and the amendment has been made on March 15, 2017. The varsity has rectified the error and amended the rule through a corrigendum by using the special powers of Vice-Chancellor.
