Greetings from your beloved Madras Christian College. I know how much you miss the sylvan campus, friendly teachers and joyful classmates. The classrooms, corridors and gutters are also silently awaiting your return. During these difficult times of Covid-19 Pandemic, I hope and pray that you all are well, staying safe and healthy.
I understand that many of you are worried about completing your semester/degree since examinations are not conducted yet. I wish to inform you that our College has been making continuous efforts to mitigate the impact of the Pandemic on our academic calendar by taking the following steps.
i) Strategizing the conduct of ICA for the final years and be fully prepared to comply with any guidelines by the University/Government.
ii) Preparation to conduct online classes preferably through Google classroom during the extended lockdown period.
iii) Exploring the online assessment protocols and software for the future.
iv) Making available the Semester V mark sheet downloadable from the website so as to facilitate final year students to apply for the PG programme.
v) Conducting surveys among students to know the availability of gadgets and accessibility of the internet to strategize learning during the extended lockdown.
vi) Preparation for providing mail IDs for students to initiate online learning.
vii) Opening of the web portal for TRIAL prior to admission through sports quota and to scrutinize the applications.
viii) To be fully prepared with the processes concerning admissions for the Academic year 2020-21 and be made functional once the government provides the guidelines.
ix) Facilitating extended learning by encouraging the Departments to conduct webinars.
I sincerely wish that normalcy would resume soon and our affectionate MCC will be enriched by the presence of our Students and Teachers. May God Almighty continue to protect all of you and your dear families and keep you safe and sound.
Dr. P. Wilson
Principal & Secretary
