3rd year students Stage protest,demand relaxation in Syllabus


Srinagar: The under graduate 3rd-year students Saturday staged protests against the Kashmir University (KU) authorities for issuing “flawed” date sheet for their exams scheduled from January 10, next year.

The students held protests in Press Enclave Srinagar.

“The date sheet issued by KU authorities has many flaws. We have been given only one day break between different subjects in science stream,” the protesting students said.

They said KU authorities should issue revised date sheet for 3rd year students and give some relaxation in syllabus as well.

“As per the already issued date sheet, our exams will complete with 10-12 days. We have just one day break between subjects. KU should provide some relaxation in our syllabus as well,” the aggrieved students said.

The students said their session started in mid week of May this year and later their colleges remained closed in wake of the unrest that erupted in 1st week of July. “We have attended our classes for less than two months and have completed only 10-20 percent of our syllabus,” the students said.

The students accused their respective college authorities of misinforming the KU authorities regarding the completion of syllabus of students. “We have attended classes for less than two months and it is not possible to complete 80 -90 percent syllabus in such a short span of time. Our college authorities are hell bent to ruin our career,” the students said.

Meanwhile, a top official in Kashmir University said the authorities would look into the students’ demand for breaks between various papers after they approach the Controller Examinations.

“The students should have first approached controller examination with their representation regarding the issue. Varsity will consider it if merit is found in it.”
