While the Punjab government is not keen to go ahead with the examination schedules, the majority of students in Punjab and its state capital, Chandigarh besides the academicians are in favour of scheduled examinations. Students say any delay in these exams will not only wash away their preparations and hopes but will also increase the competition if the exams are re-scheduled.
They say that this will also increase unemployment besides wasting their valuable time. Vice Chancellor, Chandigarh University Satnam Singh Sandhu said that there was no harm to conduct the exams if the Covid-19 protocols and procedures are followed strictly. “Students have done the preparations and their hard work will be wasted if the exams are re-scheduled,” Sandhu said.
