The exams were scheduled to start on July 4 and end on July 26.

"A lot of students had booked tickets to go home after the exams. Now they have to cancel those as we do not even know how much the exams will be postponed," he added.

When contacted, DU Vice Chancellor C Yogesh Singh explained the postponment saying, "There was an attendance shortage among students, which could have led to a loss of a year for them. Considering all aspects, I have instructed the Faculty of Law to continue classes for another two weeks. The exams will be held from 18th July."
