Jamia Millia Islamia Postgraduate Students Stage Protest Against Offline Exams

Several students enrolled in postgraduate programs at Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) protested against offline exams on Tuesday. On the first day of exams resuming in physical mode, students protested in front of the varsity proctor's office demanding online exams. Additionally, a section of students boycotted their exams. While classes were held offline, the Jamia authorities said that the exams would be held in the physical mode as planned. 

Tuesday marks the beginning of exams for most postgraduate courses, including MAs (Human Rights), MBAs, MAs (Political Science), as well as MAs (Public Administration). Vivek Singh, a postgraduate student said that "I have boycotted the exam because we have only had classes in online mode for two months currently. How can students be expected to memorize everything and give exams outside of class?"

The chief proctor, Waseem Ahmad Khan said that some students boycotted their exams and demanded that the exams be held online. "We have made it clear that in the February 20 meeting it was decided that exams for courses for which there were no online classes will be conducted offline," he said.
