The students who are boycotting examinations have been warned by the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) that they will not be allowed to register for the next semester if the academic requirements of the institution are not being fulfilled.
JNU conducts the evaluation of students in several ways such as home assignments, quizzes, term papers, presentations, sessional examinations, etc, college authority said.
Also, some protesting students are stopping the bona fide students to sit for end-semester exams. The university said that the deans of Schools and chairpersons of Special Centres have decided to give ‘take-home exams’ to the students.
“Those who refuse to write the exams on their own will, in spite of the fact that the university is making every effort to conduct the examinations, will not be eligible to register in the next semester if they do not fulfil the academic requirements as per University ordinances,” the university administration said.
Therefore, all students who are willing to take the exam will get the opportunity to write the exam.
“Protecting the academic interests of bona fide students is the top priority. Deans of Schools and Chairs of Special Centres will prepare their schedule and post on the JNU website,” the university said.
Earlier, the JNU students come up with the protest on the issue of hostel fee hike and have boycotted exams. JNU students condemned the university for sending question papers to students through WhatsApp.
