Law students urge KU to postpone exams till February



Srinagar Dec 19: Law students at Kashmir University have demanded deferment of their 2nd semester exam to February 2021 citing harsh weather conditions. The exam is scheduled in January.

The students said that their batch was enrolled in 2019, but they attended classes only for two months due to “ disruption” in the academic session in the wake of abrogation of article 370 and the covid19 pandemic. “ The university was closed in March soon after the outbreak of covid19.” The students said that in the wake of Covid19 lockdown, they were promoted to third semester. " But now the department is planning to hold our second semester exams. We urge the department to hold our exams in February in view of harsh weather," the students said.

“ We also need preparation time, as per guidelines of UGC and Bar Council of India ( BCI).” The students alleged that the department has confused them through a number of circulars issued from time to time. " Vide its notifi cation dated 30/ 05/ 20 the KU shi ed to online examination mode and conducted online exams in spring session," the student said.

“ Through another circular, it was informed that online exams would be conducted on MCQ type pa ern,” they said. “ Therea er, on September 29, examination forms were issued listing only fi ve papers instead of six and students were charged excess fee," the students said.

The students said both these grievances were brought to the notice of HoD and dean and the department assured resolution. “ But, both the issues remain unresolved till date."
