Students of BHU demand End of Uncertainty Around Exams; General Promotion to Students Without Exams
The academic year has been disrupted due to the unprecedented nationwide lockdown to contain the Corona pandemic. With delayed academic calendar and the possibility of offline/online examination without course-work being complete, there is a great deal of trepidation among the students.
The online classes are likely to be discriminatory to the underprivileged students given the highly uneven access to infrastructure and connectivity. It is also inadvisable to conduct exams without completion of course work in a physical class, where there is also very high risk of transmission of COVID-19 for the students.
In light of this, the students of Banaras Hindu University ask for the following demands:
1.All Students in Year 1 and 2 should be promoted without an exam. Extra classes for course work missed should be conducted after University re-opens. The marks may be offered on the basis of performance of previous semesters or next semesters or any other marking scheme favourable can be applied (after taking opinion from students), and the students who want to appear for exams may be allowed appear afterwards everything gets fine.
2.Students in Final Year should be promoted based on past performance with 10% extra marks since it is observed that students improve their performance in the final year
or from the marks of all previous semesters, which ones are the best, may be offered for this semester
and the students who want to appear for exams may be allowed appear afterwards everything gets fine
or any decision but to be made only after taking feedback/suggestions from final year students and must be favourable for them, their health, their safety and their future.
3.We also demand that University should not conduct any Online classes or tests.
And for rearrangement of things after lockdown, University may seek additional funds from PM Cares fund where teachers and University staff contributed.
The other Central Universities like Delhi University have already decided to give General Promotion to their students.
Students are the future of this country and their future shouldn’t be uncertain and dark due to this unprecedented crisis.
We demand mass promotions of the students to the next year, as the courses haven't been completed and there is very high risk of transmission of Corona in conducting offline exams which can be disastrous.
If you agree with these three demands, please sign this petition and send it to at least 5 of your friends.
