Scores of students from Kashmir University’s law department on Thursday staged a protest to press for deferring of their final semester exams to March.

Witnesses said dozens of students assembled at the campus and staged protests against the varsity’s law department authorities for their decision to hold exams in December.

The students demanded that the department should issue a notification to announce deferment of exams to March.

“The authorities seem to be in a hurry to hold our exams. The department should follow a proper calendar for holding exams so that students can get ample time for preparations,” said a protesting student.

Faculty members were seen trying to pacify the students. 

Head of the department of law, Prof Mohammad Hussain said that the exam was scheduled in December on the demand of some students who want to appear in the exams for the post of Munsif judge.

“The (government’s) law department has advertised 24 posts of Munsif judge and our outgoing (LLB 6th semester) students want to appear in that exam,” he said, adding the department wants to benefit the maximum number of students who want the exams in December.

“Now I am of the opinion that I will hold two exams, one in December and one in March and students will appear in the exam as per their convenience. I have no other option.”

Prof. Hussain said he waiting to see if the university higher authorities would approve of the idea.
