Jammu & Kashmir – MBBS students demand postponement of exams citing pandemic and 2G issues. MBBS students from universities across Jammu and Kashmir are demanding that in light of the coronavirus pandemic examinations should be postponed. According to the students, the examination in Jammu and Kashmir Universities are scheduled from August 10. Students are however citing serious concerns regarding the preparation being hindered because of coronavirus pandemic.
“In the current situation, it is difficult for us to travel long distances to colleges. Our syllabus and practical work were not completed. We couldn’t complete online classes due to the 2G network service. Our books are in hostels for the past few months. We are requesting the authorities to postpone the exams to a suitable date,” a pupil from Jammu University mentioned.
Several students from across the two premier universities — the University of Jammu and the University of Kashmir — told indiatvnews.com that they don’t want to risk their lives and they are scared to come to colleges to give exams.
‘Preparation badly affected’
“There is no time for us to prepare. Half of our class is out of the Jammu division and some out of the union territory. Many students belong to the red zone area also. This exam poses a threat to us. Some of the students from our class are coronavirus positive and many of them are asymptomatic. Who will be responsible for our lives? We may not be important to the university but we are important to our parents,” said 1st-year MBBS student from Jammu University.
