The year 2020 has been a challenging year for all of us. It not only changed the way we work, but also how we learn. Covid-19 pandemic has pushed the education online. The University of Delhi has been closed since March. The University has shown its ability to adapt in current situations. Traditional classroom teachings were replaced by online platforms. However, it is feared that if the colleges do not open this year, the next session will be under a lot of pressure. Delhi University has now decided that the final year students, who need to use laboratories and do practical work, can come from February 1st to March 31st.
