Student body for regular classes before exam by Guru Nanak Dev University

Tribune News Service

Amritsar, June 3

Stating that online education cannot compensate for regular classes, the Students For Society (SFS) has asked the university authorities to provide 15 days of clasrooom teaching to students before conducting examinations.

Guru Nanak Dev University has released schedule for examinations for exit courses but students say that they are half-prepared for it. “We conducted a survey among students of exit courses and a majority of them expressed dissatisfaction with online teaching. The fact is that only one-fourth of students reside in areas that enjoy good internet connectivity. Those from other states such as Jammu and Kashmir and rural areas cannot attend online classes,” said Vijay Kumar, the president of SFS.

Another roadblock to success of online teaching and self-study is that the sudden lockdown forced a lot of students to return to their native places without taking their luggage or books, he said.

A final year student of a bachelor’s course said: “Teachers are completing their syllabus only by giving assignments on Google Classroom. They don’t even take any Zoom sessions.”
