In light of the recent surge in Covid cases in the country, a student from the “Institute of Law Nirma University” has approached the Gujarat High Court, seeking cancellation of semester-end exams and viva voce.
The petition was filed by Razaiwala Md. Hammad Hussain, who claimed that approximately 274 students/families have recently tested Covid-positive and that as a result, they might not be able to appear in the viva voce scheduled for May 8 and the written examination scheduled for May 20.
Many students have urged the university to consider a different grading system based on total semester results, according to the study. In light of the current situation, a number of other universities, including the National Law Universities, have given their students some relief.
The Respondent-University, on the other hand, did not provide enough relief to its students.
Such inhumane and pressurizing behavior on the part of the respondent university may lead to some students self-harming or committing suicide, according to the plea.
