University students in Rajasthan, MP demand cancellation of exams
NEW DELHI: Days after Maharashtra Government announced the cancellation of exams for university final year university students, their counterparts in Rajasthan are also demanding it.
The students took to social media to protest against the government’s decision to conduct exams in July. Following the Maharashtra Government’s decision, the students are demanding evaluation based on past semester performance.
On June 2, the chief minister of Rajasthan, Ashok Gehlot chaired a meeting with the higher education department which decided to promote the first and second-year students on a provisional basis.
However, the students are objecting to this decision as it creates “confusion” among the students on deciding the appropriate curriculum to study.
Further, demands to sanitise the university premises upon reopening have been made for precautionary reasons.
Many students who lived in rented accommodation in the state have returned to their home states during the lockdown. Demands for an exemption to pay the rent has also been made for such students.
Students from Madhya Pradesh also tweeted demanding cancellation of exams. Exams for university students in Madhya Pradesh are scheduled to be conducted from June 29 to July 31.
As more and more posts from students surfaced, #promote_all_college_students started trending on Twitter.
