Handwara,February 14,2017 CNS: A large number of college students from North Kashmir’s Handwara town staged a demonstration on Tuesday against what they termed unfair marking of their papers in the BA, BSc and B.Com Part-II examination.

  The demo by the students caused traffic mess for quite some time. The demonstrators said a large number of students have failed because of unfair marking by the examiners. They demanded the government look into the issue and provide relief to them.

   “Our examinations were started on 8 December last year and the papers were examined by Professors at College level. They haven’t done fair marking, as a result 80 per cent of students have cut a sorry figure,” the protesting students told CNS.

     Meanwhile, the B.A.3rd year Economics students alleged that the Economics paper in which they appeared on 10 February at Islamia College was out of syllabus. They accused University officials of being insensitive towards the problems of students. “Our Economics paper was completely out of syllabus. Despite bringing the issue into the notice of University officials, nothing was done in this regard,” said a student.

   Controller Examination, Abdul Salam suggested these students to give him a representation so that he could ascertain the facts. (CNS)
