Students bear brunt of teachers’ strike

The strike by NEHU teachers over pay package might be well over, but the students are still bearing the brunt of it.
There is undue delay in declaring the results for various under-graduate examinations once again and the NEHU authorities this time put the blame on the recent strike by teachers over pay package and other issues, stated Shillong Times.
The delay has sent the students’ future into uncertainty as they are waiting for the results to decide their future career and studies while admissions in many prominent institutes outside the State are already over.
Most of the under-graduate exams of the North Eastern Hill University (NEHU) were conducted in March, but even after three months the University has so far failed to declare the results.
Decrying the delay in announcement of results by the NEHU every year, some aggrieved students wondered as to how the boards like CBSE, who deal with lakhs of students, can declare the results in just two months. “NEHU has only a few students to take care of. Why cannot it declare the results early?” the students questioned.
“How many more months should I wait for my results?” a BA 1st year student said on request of anonymity.
“I am not being able to take a decision on my future studies as NEHU is yet to announce the results,” M Barua, a BA III year student of a private college told this reporter.
“Admissions will be over in the institutes outside by the time NEHU declares the results,” she added.
When contacted, Controller of Examinations, David Syiemlieh said, “The results are late as under-graduate exams were scheduled two weeks later due to the agitations in the university.” The University is computing results to declare the results at the earliest, he said. “It is a laborious task and we are in the process of declaring the results,” he added.
