 Ask Govt to withdraw decision of holding sixth semester exam: Raqeeq ahmed Khan

Jammu, June 8: Jammu and Kashmir Apni Party (JKAP) has demanded mass-promotion of all the students in colleges and UG courses including medical, engineering and other professional courses across the Union Territory in view of covid-19 lockdown.“The students are worried about the way authorities in higher education have been asking the sixth semester students to appear in examination. Instead of asking students to appear, the Government should mass promote the students especially in view of the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown,” said J&K Apni Party, youth leader, Raqeeq ahmed Khan, addressing a press conference in Jammu. During his interaction with the media,  Raqeeq ahmed Khan said, “The students pursuing courses though UG/PG in Jammu University and Kashmir University have not been promoted. Whereas, Kashmir University has told their students that they will give them four to five internal assessment questions which they will do from their home and accordingly, submit it online.”All the colleges affiliated with the University of Jammu and Cluster University Colleges in Jammu have told six semester students that they will have to answer 180 multiple choice questions in 3 hours, said Raqeeq ahmed Khan referring to the concerns of the students who want that they should be mass promoted.The J&K Apni Party, youth leader, said the mathematics and chemistry students have expressed their concern saying they would not be able to answer multiple choice questions. It would also be a problem as a result, as well. To end all the confusion,
there is a need for mass promotion of the students.Meanwhile, the medical students in 38 different courses like female multipurpose and male multipurpose have concerns that their examination was already conducted leaving two three to four papers. These medical students also want that they should be mass promoted, he said.Raqeeq Ahmed Khan said the syllabus of MBBS and  should be reduced and their exam should be conducted on the bases of two units only. On the basis of students’ concern, the J&K Apni Party has appealed to the Government to roll back the decision of holding examinations of sixth semester students in graduation in various cluster universities.“At the moment, when assembly of people is strictly prohibited across the country, it is not a mature decision. The students of sixth semester are being forced to appear in the examination from across the division amid lockdown,” said Khan.He said that it is not possible for the students of Rajouri, Poonch, Doda, Kishtwar,Anantnag, Bandipora, Kulgam and Ramban to appear in their examination in Jammu/kashmir especially when public transport is off the road.“The Government should review their decision in view of the prevailing situation where assembly of people may lead to the spread of coronavirus,” said Khan.Claiming that the students of these cluster universities have approached him, the J&K Apni Party leader said, the students were worried because they were not taken into confidence before reaching this decision.“The students of these cluster colleges in Jammu have claimed that till March 2020, less than 30 percent syllabus could be completed,”
Anuj Manhas Jammu kashmir Apni Students Union Leader  said,  that he have learnt from the professors and senior lecturers were called in the colleges a month back to set question papers for the scheduled sixth semester examinations of the students of cluster universities.The decision to hold the examination was taken in hurry and it was not in the interest of the students as well as of faculty members. “If the students in hundreds are assembled and examinations are held, the examination centres may become hotspots of spread of covid 19,” he said.
Anuj Manhas Jammu kashmir Apni Students Union Leader  said,  that Mass promotion of JK,ut  Students of all classes is the only solution left before the administration. The vice chancellor of all nine state universities and two central universities should immediately pass order to promote JK student. Later he said nothing more and nothing less.
