SRINAGAR: Students of the third year of Kashmir University (KU) whose examinations are underway have asked the varsity authorities to reschedule the dates of their 2nd year backlog papers.

Taseer Bhat, a BCA student said that on 1st February he has to appear in both papers in different centers at Nawakadal and Amar Singh College. Even a man with wings cannot make it possible how can I? he asked.
Another student Aasia Bashir, a BA student from Women’s college Baramulla also complained about the similar problem and termed it atrocity of varsity with its students.
