Srinagar, Dec 11: The decision of Jamia Milia Islamia University to conduct exams in proctored online mode has baffled Kashmiri students who are studying in the said university.
The students said the decision of the University will ruin their career.
“It won’t be possible for poor students to buy a lap top and in absence of high speed internet it is dead impossible for Kashmiri students to compete in University examination,” they said.
“For proctored online examination, a student needs a lap top with web cam, high speed internet service and uninterrupted electricity. There is ban of 4G here in Kashmir and one can’t expect even uninterrupted electricity in Valley. Besides, poor students can’t afford a lap top with web cam,” said a student.
“Jamia Milia decides to conduct exams on 21st December 2020 through online proctored mode. Around 700 students from J&K are facing imminent threat of being disqualified given the exam needs uninterrupted high speed internet & power supply for 3 hours which in J&K is a distant dream. Grave injustice with the students who face internet suspension every now and then due to security operations & DDC elections,” tweeted PDP youth leader Mohit Bhan.
Dean Students Welfare Jamia Milia Islamia declined to comment on the issue.
An official from the office of the Registrar, Jamia Milia Islamia, Dr. Nazim Husain Al-Jafri said a meeting will be held shortly and a decision will be taken in the interest of students. (KNT)
