Srinagar, Sep 24: Law students in affiliated colleges of Kashmir University and its School of Law remain worried as they had to face the entire question paper from out of the syllabus on Saturday.

The questions from out of the syllabus appeared in the BA.LLB tenth semester examination, paper Child Law and Juvenile Justice.

Interestingly, this was not first time this year that law students complained of end semester exam question papers out of the syllabus. The students of LLB semesters have also complained of out of syllabus questions and also that questions were not framed as per marks scheme given the syllabus.

The anxious students blamed the Kashmir University authorities for playing with their future by coming up with such errors and placing them under stress.

“The errors made by examination department of Kashmir University have put our careers at stake. There is no one to listen us at University. The repeated errors show that Kashmir University is no more a student-friendly institution. We feel it is because the ineligible persons have been posted at prestigious posts without any merit,” said a group of angry law students.

Senior officials of the exam wing in the university said that they had come across the complaints by the students on questions being asked from out of syllabus.

“We will set up a committee to look into the complaints,” said Majid Zaman, Examination Controller, KU.

Farooq Masoodi, Dean Academics, KU, said that no formal complaint or representation has been received from the students so far. “But I assure that justice will prevail.”

The scenes at Kashmir University and its South and North campus were disturbing. Some female students fainted after seeing the out of syllabus paper while some students were crying, weeping while coming out of the examination hall.

“The affairs at Kashmir University are becoming from bad to worse. No accountability, no transparency but the institution of a bag of errors. Our careers are at stake. The Kashmir University authorities are least bothered,” said another group of law students.
