To be fair, we students are not demanding promotions but instead we are ready for the online examinations. Provide us tough questions and we will do our best to give correct answers.

It was not long ago when online classes got discontinued and physical classes started. Most of the syllabuses were covered through online classes, and to be factual, few of them are still not covered thoroughly by the teachers either in offline or online mode.
Let us ask the question of fairness when it comes to examinations. When you are taught most of the lessons in online classes, will you not expect your examinations be held in online mode too? This is a very simple understanding and a child can even understand it easily without a fuss. But, our respected Dhanamanjuri University’s higher authorities, such as the VC and Registrar are considering offline mode of examinations. Where is their sense of logic? They should at least have the common sense that their decisions are not fair and illogical.
To be fair, we students are not demanding promotions but instead we are ready for the online examinations. Provide us tough questions and we will do our best to give correct answers. Dear authorities, kindly reconsider your stand on holding offline examinations and have some humanity. “What was taught Online must be tested Online”. Why is it so hard to understand this? We want to be fair, and want to appear our examinations online just as our juniors (undergraduates) did. Also, our academic timeline is late, and we are lagging behind when compared to other universities. This may affect our academic journey in the future, so let the examinations be held soon in online mode.
Here’s our demand which we would like to request the DMU administrative:
- Conduct the upcoming PG 1st and 3rd Semester Examinations in Online Mode.
- Conduct the above mentioned examinations as soon as possible.
When these demands are met, the ongoing fight between the university authorities and the students will surely come to an end.
