Rajkiya Kanya Mahavidyalaya students at Gurugram held a protest outside their university on Saturday demanding the cancellation of their second semester exam.
The protesters said the university administration sent them a message saying they had been promoted to the third semester, but were then asked to take a second semester exam.
“We protested to demand that the second semester exam be canceled. We were unable to study because classes were suspended amid the lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. The university administration in a notice had said that we had been promoted. Three days ago, another notice arrived stating that our exam will take place and the dates will be announced on January 20, ”Anjali, one of the protesting students, told ANI.
“Now, we have been told that there will be a meeting on January 4 at the university. We will make a big protest if the exams are not canceled. If we can study for 10 days and pass all exams, then what is the point of a three-year course? Do it for a month, take the exams for the three semesters in 30 days and give us the title, “he added.
Another protester, Preeti, said: “We demand that the university administration support the students and cancel the exams.”
Traffic on the old railway line, Mahavir Chowk, Agrasen Chowk and Bus Stand Road was affected due to the student demonstration.
Rajkiya Kanya Mahavidyalaya is affiliated with Gurugram University, a state government university established under the Haryana Act 17 of 2017 and started operating from the 2018-19 academic year.
