National Students’ Union of India (NSUI), Nagaland unit has requested vice chancellor, Nagaland University, Lumami, to end uncertainty around exams and to promote students without exams.

In an appeal to VC, NU, Lumami, the NSUI president, X Chophika Sumi and general secretary Khrieketoulie Metha stated that the academic year has been disrupted due to the unprecedented nationwide lockdown and stressed that with delayed academic calendar and the possibility of online examination without course work being complete, there was great trepidation among students.
While maintaining that online exams were likely “to be discriminatory to underprivileged students given the highly uneven access to infrastructure and connectivity”, NSUI stated that it was also inadvisable to conduct exams without completion of course work in a physical class.
In light of this, NSUI put forth the following demands, where all students in final year 1 and 2 should be promoted without an exam. It asked that extra classes for course work missed should be conducted after universities/colleges re-open, while students in final year be promoted based on past performances with 10% extra marks since it is observed that students improve their performance in the final year.
NSUI also stated that universities may seek additional funds from PM Cares fund where teachers and university staff contributed. While expressing that students were the future of this country and their future “shouldn’t be uncertain and dark” during the unprecedented crisis, the NSUI also was optimistic that the VC would take into consideration the demand of students.
