Allow us to appear for exam, students urge

They demanded they be allowed to appear for the examinations and the Department give them admission tickets.  The Department had denied admission tickets to 109 students belonging to MEWA PU College on grounds that the institution was not recognised.

The protesting students claimed that the MEWA College had admitted them to first and second PU courses as private candidates and had made necessary arrangements. Their applications had to be processed via another private College but the other College had not submitted it in time, to the Department.

Though the students had been protesting for over a week at the college, the Department had not initiated any action against the colleges.

Supplementary

The protest was withdrawn after the officials assured them that they will be allowed to appear for the supplementary examinations in June 2010. Speaking to Deccan Herald, Pre-University Department Commissioner S Shankaranarayana said there were logistic problems which prevented the Department from giving permission.

“We cannot provide admission tickets or registration numbers a day before the examinations. We will treat them as private candidates,” he said. The Department will also take strong action against MEWA College for misleading students and flouting rules, he added.
