About 2.50 lakh final year students of degree and professional courses will appear for these exams at about 300 centres across Telangana.

UGC released its guidelines asking the universities to conduct terminal semester examinations by September end.

“Results of examinations will be declared by August 15. Only after that schools will be opened,” said HRD minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank.

The exam was earlier scheduled to be held on December 22 but got postponed after Assam recently witnessed protests in several areas against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019.
