New Delhi, Sep 2, 2020-

The National Students Union of India (NSUI) on Wednesday slammed the central government over 65 per cent attendance for the JEE examinations, saying many students missed the exam due to hasty move and lack of planning to provide necessary basic arrangements and demanded re-examination.

NSUI National Secretary Lokesh Chugh said, “As the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Mains kickstarted from September 1 only around 65 per cent students appeared for the examination, and many centres in the country reported meagre attendance of less than 45 per cent.”

He said, “NSUI demands a re-examination for the students who have missed their chances to attend the entrance exam because of the hasty move to conduct JEE and lack of planning from the government in providing the necessary basic arrangements to take students to examination centres amid this pandemic so that a large majority of students will not miss out on this academic session.”

Condemning the government’s move to conduct exams amid the Covid-19 pandemic, he said, NSUI condemns the imposition of JEE despite the concerns and demand from the students’ community to postpone the examination considering the pandemic.

“Though the government had claimed that they have taken adequate measures for the smooth conduct of examination and arranged transportation facilities for the students, the low attendance indicates that it is the failure of authority which denied the opportunity to many students to appear for the examination,” Chugh said.

NSUI National President Neeraj Kundan had also demanded the government arrange transportation facilities for students, especially those coming from rural areas. The Congress also launched a nationwide campaign on August 28 to demand postponement of NEET and JEE examinations after the government’s decision to conduct examinations in the month of September.  (Agency)Yes Punjab Online Since 2012
