Postpone exams, urges NSUI

The NSUI has urged the government to postpone the UG final year exams following the vaccination of college students on June 29 and 30. NSUI state secretary Yasin Bhatt said people experience fever and body aches for three to four days after vaccination, so the exams scheduled from July 1 should be postponed. The NSGI said since vaccinated students could face problems while appearing in exams two days after vaccination, the date sheet should be revised. Meanwhile, the NSUI also demanded that the date for filling up exam forms for second and fourth semester of UG courses be extended.

Open libraries in colleges: SFI

The SFI unit of Government College in Sanjauli has demanded that the libraries in college and university be opened at the earliest as the final-year students of the UG course will sit for their exams from July 1. The unit further demanded that the pending results be declared at the earliest and the exam schedule for the first and second year be announced soon.
