According to the notice(dated 11.7.21) the KTU S6 end semester exams begin on 02.08.2021. We are expecting it to be kept online or even cancel it, it may not be a  realistic expectation but we want to at least postpone it considering the following reasons:


1. Our comprehensive viva is taken only in the coming weeks which means we will have to spend a week to study for the viva eating up our time to study for the university exam.


2. Lab exams are conducted in the coming weeks too as the university did not give proper instructions to the colleges about when the university exams were going to take place hence eating up our time which we could have devoted for our university exam.


3. As the university knows very well the classes were conducted online we require more time learning and figuring out the concepts on our own as online teaching does not give the benefits of offline teaching.


4. Students abroad and stuck in other places also need more time to arrange their arrival and quarantine thereafter.


5. Students of the academic year 2018-2022 weren't given any consideration for s5 (last semester) examinations too. Our exams were conducted inspite of having such a grave situation whereas the exams of all other (odd) semesters were postponed and we were given no considerations regarding the gaps between the exams or even regarding the time to learn prior to the exams. Many of our papers even had out of syllabus questions on top of that, increasing our anxiety and stress at an already stressful time.
This semester also our tentative timetable shows a similar case that no gaps are given in between our subjects. We find it very difficult to study these subjects without proper study leave.


6. This semester is very important for us as we are sitting for placements in the next few months. If we get supple this semester, we will be eliminated from sitting in majority of the companies. There are many hard working students that may even lose their opportunities of getting placed in good companies because their sgpa may have gone down due to not being able to prepare adequately for the exam due to the lack of time.

7. Most colleges have not finished their portions.Classes are still going on.

This petition seeks to either postpone the exams or to at least change it to online mode.

Help us reach our goal. Please sign the petition.
