The left-backed, democratic students’ organisation, NSUI has asked the Delhi Government to follow in the footsteps of Maharashtra Government, to cancel exams and promote all the students.
Maharashtra Chief Minister, Uddhav Thackeray, on Sunday said that the state universities will not hold final year exams either and students will be awarded marks based on an aggregate of previous years’ results. The decision has been taken after reviewing the present circumstances that don’t allow exams to be held immediately.
NSUI has asked the Delhi Government to make “a brave call” for the welfare of the students of Delhi- NCR based universities like Delhi University, IP University and Ambedkar University.
“National Students’ Union of India requests you to cancel the exams of universities and promote students on the basis of their previous records keeping in the view the alarming situation of COVID-19 pandemic. The recent decision of Mr. Uddhav Thackerey for students is commendable…,” NSUI said in a statement.
“We also want that exams should be cancelled for first and second year students and they should be promoted without exams. Final year students can be declared pass with 10 per cent extra on the aggregate of their previous years’ results for IP University, Ambedkar University and University of Delhi,” Lokesh Chugh, National Secretary, NSUI said in his letter to Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal.
