SRINAGAR, Mar 25: Final year students from Valley Government colleges today staged a protest against Kashmir University (KU) for alleged poor evaluation.
Several under graduate students (BG) gathered before Sir Syed Gate of varsity and started sloganeering against KU and evaluators. The students alleged that evaluators do not care about their career and “KU is trying to generate finance from them and it looks more a business unit than an educational institute”.
The protesting students said evaluation status of math and English subjects is worst where only about 8% students have managed to pass and that too with less marks. “Is it possible that only 20 students among 300 can qualify English and those who have secured good marks in other subjects fail,” asked Abrar Ahmad, a student.
The students of the Islamia College of Science and Commerce alleged that evaluators have done hard marking and maximum students have failed and others are not eligible for KU entrance test because of low percentage.
“It has become a new trend of Kashmir University to harass students in different ways. KU students get low percentage as compared to other reputed institutions of the country. We are depressed as our career is on stake, we are confused and request authorities to look into the matter and redress our problem,” the students added.
