Sable once again reiterated that colleges were not calling students to campuses to fill out forms given the pandemic situation and advised them to use online technology.
A section of students had called for exams to be canceled and requested promotion to the next semester like last year, citing the pandemic situation where many of them had contracted the deadly disease. Some of them had also lost one or both parents or loved ones to the contagious virus. However, the director of the examination had already rejected their request, stating that the students would suffer losses.
Earlier this week, TOI reported on how students ran a Twitter campaign under the hashtag #rtmnu_ to have exams cancelled.
