There is no other option left but to prepare ourselves for another session of online classes. Since the first semester has started late, we have little time to complete our syllabus. So, the priority now is to finish the syllabus,.

St Xavier’s College of west bengal , St Paul’s or any other collages , online classes will resume next week. “First and third  semester classes will start on October 25 for the English department. Online classes for others will also resume soon,”said a faculty of college .

A college principal/Teacher said who did not wish to be named said the decision by two main school boards to conduct examinations offline has rekindled hope that some decision to reopen colleges and universities might be taken soon. “Thousands of students graduated this year without setting foot on the campus. Students with science subjects did not conduct even basic experiments in the last four semesters before graduating. At least some on-campus activities should be allowed and decision on starting full-fledged offline classes can be taken later.
