Scores of student from Sri Pratap College Srinagar staged a protest against College administration in Press Enclave on Monday. Students alleged that they were barred from appearing in External examination while college authorities citing attendance shortage as the reason.
The BSc first year students told CNS that they had formally sought leave form the College for the purpose of appearing in CET and other professional courses. “We were preparing for CET and today we were shocked when College authorities did not allow us to appear in External examination. If the College Authorities will follow rules then out of 2800 students only 50 odd students qualify for sitting in Practical Examinations,” one of the students said.
They appealed Higher authorities to look into the matter for sake of their better future.
When contacted Principal S.P.College Dr Muhammad Yasin Shah told CNS that these students failed in ‘Continuous Assessment’ as a result they cannot appear in examination this year. “The University has changed the pattern of examination. It is the decision of the Academic Council under which students have to qualify in Continuous Assessment,” he said.
