Srinagar: Echoing students’ concerns, Social Activist Peer Tehleel on Thursday sent a letter addressed to Punjab Chief Minister on behalf of over 4,000 J&K students.
“The students of various colleges affiliated to I. K. Gujral Punjab Technical University are in a great dilemma because of the unfair decision of the university to conduct offline examinations during the pandemic whereas every other university has given the choice of online mode as well,” Social Activist Peer Tehleel said.
Students have been informed to stay outside any place rather then staying in hostels, if the mode of teaching was online, why to conduct Examination through offline mode, he added.
The students said almost every university in the country was conducting online examinations or open-book tests.
“The Punjab Technical University is risking students’ lives because they don’t take it seriously. Nobody is asking them to not conduct examinations, we are only requesting for choices,” students said.
