Azerbaijan Institute of Theology declares guidelines for summer exam session
The Academic Council of Azerbaijan Institute of Theology (AIT) made several decisions on the assessment of students’ knowledge for the spring semester of the 2019-2020 academic year and the organization of the summer exam session.

Second year BA students are exempted from the requirement of writing a term paper. Graduate students will also be exempted from the requirement of academic practice training and writing a thesis; their assessment and final attestation will be based on the results obtained during their studies (GPA). Graduate students with no more than two academic debts will be able to take the exam without participating in classes.
MA students who will defend their theses will be exempted from the requirement of publishing an article. The thesis defense will be organized in the Specialized Council in accordance with the methodological guidelines for the prevention of coronavirus infection (COVID-19) during examinations prepared by the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
According to the decision, complex topics that require extensive responses were not included in the exam questions; the number of exam questions were reduced and the summer exam session of the 2019-2020 academic year will be conducted online.
The educational process in all institutions of the Republic of Azerbaijan was postponed since March 3, 2020 to stop the spread of COVID-19.
