Gurugram college girls protest, demand cancellation of exams


Gurugram, Jan 2 | Hundreds of students of the government girls college situated in sector-14 of Gurugram blocked the road near Mahavir Chowk on Saturday demanding cancellation of second semester exams. The protest led to a huge traffic jam.

The students were protesting against the college management for again conducting their second semester exams despite getting promoted to the third semester.

The students alleged that they had given an online exam consisting of 20 marks during the second semester and at that time the management had assured them they will be promoted to next semester and the exam of the second semester will not be conducted. Now, the management wants to conduct the second semester examination in the next 10 days.

The students demanded the cancellation of the exams and sought written assurance about their promotion to the next semester.

Many students also alleged that the college is conducting exams despite promotion on the basis of internal assessment for all inter-semester students.

“We are preparing for final year semester exam and now how it could be possible to give second semester exams without any preparation even without any classes or without books,” said a protesting student.

“We are studying for the third semester since the previous year. How can we write the exam on the second semester in next few days?” a student from the girl’s college told IANS.

Furthermore, going ahead with the protest, students are planning to block the road till their demands are not met.

Speaking to IANS, Government Girls college Sector-14 principal R.K. Garg said, “We are following UGC directions to conduct pending semester exams. Even earlier, we have said that the decision of postponement of the exam can be changed if the situation becomes favourable. However a meeting in this regard will be held on January 4 with the university and further course action taken as per their directions.”
