Jawaharlal Nehru University students boycotted the end-semester examination on Thursday, continuing their agitation against the hike in hostel fee.

However, the School of Engineering, the Atal Bihari Vajpayee School of Management and Entrepreneurship, and the School of Sanskrit and Indic Studies (SSIS) were exceptions.

Professor Hari Ram Mishra of the SSIS said students appeared in full strength for exams in 10 am to 1 pm shift.

In some schools and centres, including the School of Life Sciences, Special Centre for Molecular Medicine and Special Centre for Nano Science, students came out of exam halls within minutes. They told their professors that they won't be able to take the examination to show solidarity with the protesting students.

At the School of Biotechnology, MSc students told their professors that they would take the exam only after their demand for a complete rollback of the fee hike is met.

"Two days back, the protesting students had come to our department and urged their counterparts here to boycott exams. Our students told them that they support the movement against fee hike but will not support the exam boycott since it will jeopardise their future," he said.

The Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union (JNUSU) thanked the students for supporting the exam boycott. — PTI
