Students of Islamia College of Science and Commerce here have opposed the decision taken by the administration to hold their exam in offline mode.
Scores of students of the last semester said they were being forced to appear in offline mode of exam amid the ongoing COVID pandemic. “We appeared online in internal examination of 6th semester. Now, the College authorities have decided to conduct the major exams in offline mode which has left students shocked and disturbed,” a student said.
He said the College was forcing them to sit in offline mode of exams at a time when COVID cases were rising with each passing day.
“This is so shocking that the College is adamant to hold the exams in offline mode.
All the students are demanding online examinations,” the student said.
The student complained that despite pleading before the College authorities to conduct the exam in online mode, the officials conveyed them that “those not interested to appear in offline exams can wait and appear in bi-annual exams later.”
“We are not running away from exams but we are apprehensive about contracting infection in the exam centre. Who will be responsible if any student gets infected,” said another student.
