    • May be after Sankrantri/Pongal Vacation.

      Osmania University is now busy with strike.

      Later on, in the first week of January 2018, O.U. is hosting 105th Indian science congress event at Campus and Prime Minister is the Chief Guest. All are busy in making grand arrangement for that event

      Even O.U. hostel students are given vacation till 2nd week of January so that the delegates could be provided with adequate accommodation.

      That means III Sem external exams might start after Sankrantri/Pongal vacation
