Christ (deemed to be University) final year students are expecting to face numerous issues in giving the end semester examinations online.

The problem may not exist with all the students but some students live in areas where internet connectivity is limited eg. Kashmir, areas hit by cyclones and rural parts of India. Moreover, the mock test conducted has resulted in various issues which are being brought up in class whatsapp groups but with only 4 days remaining for the examination.

Then comes the issue of conducting physical exams which they have given the option of in the month of July. We as students feel that Christ is not taking the global pandemic seriously enough as thousands of students travelling from not only different states but countries would have a high chance of being infected. This would put not only the students' but also the faculty's lives at risk.

We request all Christites and parents to sign the petition as a step towards inclusivity.

Note : Delhi University and IIT Kanpur among other colleges have cancelled final exams of final year students at the time of writing this petition.
