SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Youth National Conference on Tuesday took exception to the ambivalent attitude of the Kashmir University on the conduct of exams of law students in university’s law faculty, saying the undecided attitude of the university besides perturbing the students has cost them their precious time
In a statement, YNC Provincial President Salman Ali Sagar criticized Kashmir University administration on its failure to conduct impending online exams of Law students. “Nearly 400 law students were waiting for an online examination; the notifications of which were published online. Now suddenly the mode of examination has been changed to offline and the date sheet for the same has been published while Jammu University will conduct LLB examination through online mode. The law students from KU are demanding that the examination shall be conducted online as decided earlier,” he said adding that the prevailing COVID-19 induced crises makes the online mode indispensable since it helps maintain social distancing.
He said the conduct of exams in offline mode will put the safety of the students and their families in jeopardy.
Salman said the students affiliated with Kashmir University law faculty continue to suffer on account of the University’s and higher education department’s lackluster attitude. “The law students affiliated with the University of Kashmir already face a delay of one and a half years because of post 5th August 2019 clampdown and subsequent COVID 19 lockdown. The naïve attitude of the concerned authorities, the students decry has put their future at stake. Regrettably, university administration and the concerned higher education department are playing with the future of students,” he said.
YNC Provincial President demanded that the semester exams be done online as was notified by the concerned authorities earlier. He said going online will help maintain social distancing and necessary covid19 protocols. He urged the authorities to ensure that students don’t have to undergo any inconvenience at any level.
