Aswin Pillai started this petition to UGC (University Grants Commission) and

We final year students of various colleges in India are having our final examination offline amid the surge of 2nd wave of COVID-19. It is a threat to us and people near us. When the classes can be conducted online, why can't the examinations be online too? Why conduct the examinations offline, when the cases are increasing day by day? Why expose us to threat? It would have a domino effect, as even if just a person (whether the student or the invigilator) contracts the virus will exposes everyone in the examination hall. Now even the family of each and every person in that hall would be at the risk of contracting COVID-19, but also all the others whom they meet.

As already COVID-19's 2nd wave is on a surge, with having more than 1 lakh new cases everyday. We would like to request our dear Hon'ble education minister Shri Ramesh Pokhriyal Sir, Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), UGC and our respective college management to please conduct our final examinations online, for the safety of each and every student and people near us. 

When the new cases where less than 1000 per day instead of 1 lakh per day, all the colleges had already adopted online teaching method,  conducting online classes. When the classes can be conducted online, can't our examinations be conducted online too? If we can adopt to a non-conventional method of teaching, shouldn't the same be done to the method of conducting the evaluation, by conducting online examinations. It won't put anyone in risk and is a much better solution to conducting examinations online. 

We students urge you to sign our petition and my other fellow final year students those who are in support of us please join our telegram:
