Students Write Exams in Biting Cold; KU Charges Rs 150 per Student for Heating Arrangements



Students appearing in First Year exams across Kashmir Wednesday alleged that they are forced to write examination papers in biting cold. They said that Kashmir University has made no heating arrangements as a result students face difficulty while writing their examination papers.

A group of students from Government Degree College Sopore said that University of Kashmir had charged Rs 150 per student for heating arrangements in examination halls, but unfortunately no such facility is there for the students. The students who appeared in these exams at Amar Singh College and other centres expressed same concern and appealed authorities to make heating arrangements for them.

The students complained that they face immense inconvenience while writing their exams.

“Our hands freeze while writing our exam papers. The biting cold gives us tough time in the examination centre. We are mulling to protest next time if heating arrangements are not made for us,” the students warned.
