Rajasthan University has declared earlier that the exams of the students will be conducted in July. However, there are 80000 students for whom the centres are yet to be fixed. Out of the 4 lakh students affiliated under the university, 3.2 lakhs have been allotted to existing centres in colleges and universities in Jaipur and neighbouring areas. This is due to the social distancing norm to be followed while the exams are being conducted. All the fixed centres will be able to follow the set norms by the UGC. However, more centres are required to fix the gap. The vice-chancellor of Rajasthan University, R.K. Kothari, revealed in an interview with a news publication that their first concern is to conduct the terminal exams of out-going students.
