No exams yet Kashmir University asks students to submit forms and fees.
The University of Kashmir, on Thursday, reported that all the students will be promoted with no tests. They will be scored premise interior evaluations or execution in past semesters. Be that as it may, the students are disturbed as they have been approached to submit assessment forms and fees.
The last year student from Srinagar, says, “We have been asked to submit our examination forms along with a fee of Rs 1650. Now, the university has officially decided to mass promote the students based on their performances in internal examinations. We are wondering why are we asked to submit the fee?”
The last year student further added, “Due to economic slowdown following the pandemic, most students are facing the pinch and not everyone can afford to pay the required amount.”
Nisar Ahmad Mir, recorder, University of Kashmir, discloses to Education Times that however the semester tests have been dropped, the divisions should present an elective evaluation framework set up. “The income created from for the test charge will be utilized for the equivalent.”
Another understudy, Sammi Ullah Baigh, who is taken a crack at BA LLB course is worried over money related emergency. “When the businesses are shut and laborers are jobless, many students who are suffering for daily bread and butter cannot pay the fee during the current crisis.”
No online learning in the valley
At the point when the entire world is taking the computerized course, understudies in Kashmir can’t satisfy their adapting needs as fast internet services have been suspended in the valley since August 5, 2019.
Firdaus, a final year student says, “We have access to only 2G internet here and it is almost impossible for us to attend online classes. We have hardly had around 10 classes so far. There is a major problem of connectivity and most of the time the voice breaks. We cannot access lectures on YouTube or download large files.”
Baigh, a local of Latief abad town in Baramulla region, is the first from his family to join up with a customary degree program. He is troubled as he can’t stay aware of the evolving laws, petitions, and decisions from around the world.
Baugh says, “When the internet is banned, we have to either wait for it to get back to normal or study from old notes. Although our departmental library is active, only 2 books are issued to a student. Being a law student, I need to stay updated. But, given the current scenario, I will have to write about a new law with or without its knowledge because the fact that I was unable to read about it due to internet shutdown will not be accepted as a reason.”
