The students demanded stern action against the employees and also sought re-valuation, free of cost.

They also opposed the new examination system that has been implemented from the current year.

According to the new system, the students who have failed in the 1st, 3rd and 5th semesters,  are not allowed to appear for the 2nd, 4th and 6th semesters.

Similarly, unless the students clear the 2nd, 4th and 6th semesters, they are not allowed to appearing for re-examination of 1st, 3rd and 5th semester exams.

Earlier, students had the opportunity to appear for the exams even though they had not cleared the earlier semesters.

The students demanded the old system be continued.
