IUST students demand postponement of exams
‘Varsity Has Put Our Career At Stake’
Srinagar, Aug 21: The students of Islamic University of Science and Technology, (IUST) Awantipora have appealed the varsity management to postpone the exams scheduled to begin from August 24 in view of prevailing situation in the Valley.
A delegation of students told Greater Kashmir that though the notification from the exams has been issued, the IUST has not even provided identity and admit cards to them. “Under the prevailing situation, it will be impossible for us to reach the varsity and sit in exams,” they said.
The students said they had apprised the varsity authorities of the matter. “Ironically, they asked us to arrange our own transport for reaching the varsity. Most of us don’t have our own transport. Besides as the delivery of newspapers to south and north Kashmir has been barred, the students there even don’t know that the exams are scheduled for August 24. The varsity is putting our career at stake by scheduling the exams this time,” they added.
The students appealed the IUST vice-chancellor to postpone the exams in view of the unfavorable situation in the Valley.
