Another trending hashtag #StudentLivesMatter inspired by #Blacklivesmatter by the students across the country. It has received and re-tweeted by more than 104,000 users.
Delhi University and other such institutes like IIT has released a tentative examination date-sheet for final year/semester students of any UG and PG course while promoting intermediate students (1st and 2nd-year students) based on their previous semester/examination score or the basis of their internal scores.
Now final year/semester students demand the authorities of such Universities to pass and promote all the students irrespective of the year/semester they are in.
Previously all the universities in Maharashtra declared the cancellation of examination for all the students and promoting them on the basis of their previous scoring. Amity also decided to promote all its students. Now, Students of DU, JNU, JNTU, and other such universities who are going to take the online examination are demanding the same.
In such a pandemic situation, with the number of cases increasing day by day Universities were left with no other option but to conduct online examination but students who came from different states moved back to their respective states in march when university authorities asked them to leave the hostel and go back to their homes. Some of the students don’t have access to the e-resources and some are facing anxiety due to uncertainty of lives.Hence, #studentlivesmatter irrespective of their semester/age and other factors. University should treat its students equally and should take a decision which is the same for all.
Students are in hypertension mode right now as Universities have released a tentative date sheet and some of them didn’t get a chance of buying proper study materials, plus some teachers and colleges are also not providing the same. It’s obvious that students will be tensed and face anxiety because of the same.
