NSUI protest against UGC decision to conduct final exams

NSUI Students of Rajasthan University staged a protest at the University campus against the decision of UGC to conduct final exams of higher educational institutes.

The Rajasthan government had already decided to cancel all the exams of higher education but UGC a day after release the guidelines to conduct exams in September. This has now created confusion amongst students who are still not clear whether the exams will be conducted.

NSUI spokesperson Ramesh Bhati said that higher education exams should be cancelled and the government must issue guidelines to evaluate students. “We want clarity that exams are being cancelled. It is dangerous to appear for exams when the number of coronavirus cases are rising. There is immense fear in students of giving exams. So, the government should cancel the exam for the safety and security of students,” said Ramesh.

NSUI students said to cancel exams for final year as well. “There should be a mechanism to mark students as anyone can be affected by coronavirus. It is necessary to keep the decision of cancelation of exams,” said Ramesh.
