Sartaj Singh started this petition to Vice Chancellor - JCBose UST

I am writing this petition of behalf of all the students of JCBose UST. Everyone knows what stressful environment all of us are living in since March, with the constant fear of this pandemic. Everyone is stuck at different places in different situations since the lockdown just after our vacation. Like I am stuck 1200 kms away from college without books and barely working internet. There must be many of us facing this same issue.

Also we are also living in this constant fear of this highly infectious disease. There must be many living in sealed areas or containment zones, fearing for their lives and their families. Many must be having sleepless nights. This is not a vacation, we had not chosen this. This is just a rare situation we have been put into. Living confined inside our homes for 40-50 days is not a thing to cherish, you should understand.

Our university administration must consider all these things before taking any decision. In this semester, in the initial months classes were very disturbed. In the online classes 90% of syllabus have been covered in around 2 months. Isn't it too much?? Everyone knows the efficacy of online classes, and that's why live classes are arranged for subjects like science and engineering. If we had to learn online everything, we would have done on our own using YouTube tutorials. But everyone knows that's not feasible.

When we were living in constant stress, online classes started, which were below average, and classes and assignments were thrown to us like there is no tomorrow, just to complete the syllabus somehow. Still we managed to do all those.

We were unofficially told that 2nd sessional exam will not be conducted and marks will be awarded considering the assigments, attendance, etc. Earlier we had only two fears - how will we be able to managed through this pandemic and how will we complete those assignments. But, all of a sudden university announced that there will be 2nd sessional. So, we have the third fear now - will we be able to pass and survive this pandemic simultaneously??

The administration must understand that this is not a vacation for us, we aren't having great time here, so we can be bombarded with any amount of work. What if some student can't manage to prepare for the exams in any circumstance? Won't it be unfair with them??

So, I request you humbly to reconsider this decision and cancel it

 

-From all the students
