Srinagar 24 March (KNB): B.Ed first semester students of College of Education, Srinagar on Wednesday expressed their concerns on conducting of their examination tomorrow at the GDC Bemina, which they claim is inaccessible due to waterlogging in its compounds.
The aggrieved students said to Kashmir News Bureau that they were scheduled to appear in the examination of paper — Foundation of Education on March 25, which is being conducted by the Cluster University of Kashmir at the centre Government Degree College Bemina.
They said that in the wake of waterlogging in the centre’s compound, the conducting of examination tomorrow is full of challenges for them. “The surroundings of our examination centre is completely submerged with water. It would be a huge problem for us to sit in the centre. Therefore we appeal to the examination conducting body to please postpone the examination,” said a B.Ed student.
Another student claimed that “other institutions are also deferring examinations which, however, are to be taken from days now, but why our exams are not being postponed when the conditions are not looking feasible for conducting the exam.”
They said that above 200 students have to appear in the examination and have to come from far areas. “Other students have to come from the south and north of the valley, and rains have already disrupted normal life there. So in this regard, the authorities should think about those ones also who are not living one or two kilometres away from the examination centre.”
While talking to Prof Khursheed Ahmad Mir, Controller of Examination, in this regard, he said that he had received no such information from the examination centre on that score. “If there would have been any problem, then the concerned principal of the college where the examinations are going to take place would have informed me,” he said.
