Exam schedule worries students.

Hyderabad : With the T-universities scheduling the semester examinations for Novem-ber this year, the students pursuing various courses at hundreds of engineering, pharmacy, MBA and MCA colleges in the region are feeling the heat. These students have been left in the lurch by the bandhs that led to the closure of the colleges which have not even been able to complete a quarter of the syllabus. Colleges have been closed since September 18.

While the universities prepared to test the students’ knowledge, the people who were supposed to impart that knowledge were busy staying away from work purportedly to support the Sakala Janula Samme. About 500 engineering and pharmacy colleges are affiliated to the JNTU-Hyderabad and over three lakh students are pursuing various professional courses in these colleges. There are 450 other MBA and MCA colleges in the T-region.

All the second, third and fourth year students are scheduled to appear for the first semester examinations in November. The students are not in a position even to pay the exam fee since the colleges remain closed. The college managements have announced that they will not open colleges till the APSRTC resumes its bus services completely. Students are caught in a catch-22 situation where on one hand they face the risk of “attendance shortage” due to closure of colleges, and on the other hand their syllabus remains “incomplete.”

“Our college started on September 5. We attended classes for 10 days when the strike disrupted everything on September 18. The colleges remain closed ever since,” said N. Bharghav, a first year B.Tech student. Students and parents see no chance of the colleges resuming before October 10. They are only hoping that the T-outfits will call off their agitation after Dasara and colleges will function normally.
