Saloni Tyagi started this petition to Prof. Suman kundu (Academic Council, Delhi University)

This petition aims to reduce the written work given to science students of DU in form of practicals and assignments. This is to shed light on the fact that overload of work causes academic stress in students. It takes a toll on our mental and physical health which hinders learning. 

What we are doing is passive learning, simply transferring the write up from textbook to practical files without understanding all of it. By the time we finish the writing work, it drains us to an extent that we would'nt able to do any learning. The whole semester passes in maintaining  these files. 

The hardwork which we do on practical files and assignments does not pay off anything. On the day of final assessment it was not looked even twice. Teachers also emphasize more on write-ups rather than teaching because that is what they had to do. 

I think, we can utilise our writing time in learning something new and innovative. Instead of assignments we should be given some sort of presentations, research projects or some other interactive activity that would build our personality.
