Students protest on Offline Exams
The #DUStudentsDemandOBE was trending on Social Media which was used by DU students when raising their concerns against the university decision of an offline exam. In Spite of such opposition, there was resolution from the University authorities which is why the students moved to filing a petition in Delhi HC.
The DU exam petition was filed by 8 students of the university alleging that despite the orders of offline classes many colleges of DU continued with online classes and the sudden decision to conduct the offline exams by DU was not a wise and favourable one for many students.
The petition is filed against the DU offline exams and also argues that the fear of COVID 4th wave is doing the rounds and the offline exams at DU will only increase the risk of students contracting the disease.
The issue of DU exams 2022 was also raised with Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan while the hashtag #PradhanJiHelpDUStudentsWithOBE.
