Bachelor degree students demand reduction in syllabus
Srinagar, March 18: The
5th semester students of three year bachelor’s degree on Monday sought
reduction in their 5th and 6th semester syllabus by 50 percent. .
Staging protest at Press
Enclave, the students explained that they have very little time to complete their
syllabus therefore, it is important that the syllabus is reduced by half.
“Kashmir University (KU)
has asked us to appear in the 5th and 6th semester examination simultaneously.
It is really hectic to prepare for both the semesters simultaneously,” said a
Javeed Ahmad of IITM, Hyderpora.
Another student, Irshad
Ahmad said that they were yet to complete the syllabus of 5th semester.
“In August, the KU has
asked to appear in the examination. How can we complete the syllabus in a short
span of time? The authorities should rethink over their decision, ”Irshad said.
“At least, the syllabus
should be reduced by 50%. If KU authorities will not reduce the syllabus, many
of us won’t be able to qualify the examination. Our future is at stake,” he
The student also lashed
out at the KU authorities for failing to declare the result of 2nd, 3rd and 4th
semester in time.
“The result of backlog
students is still awaited. We fail to understand, why the result has not been
declared. We urge the authorities to announce the result at an earliest,” they
The students threatened to
hit the streets in case the syllabus was not reduced.
