The Lucknow University Associated College Teachers’ Association (LUACTA) has demanded to boycott undergraduate and postgraduate examinations in view of rising Covid-19 cases. LUACTA has also written to CM Yogi Adityanath.
Earlier,a section of students had also made a similar demand. Exams are scheduled in July and August. LUACTA President Prof. Manoj Pandey said,”It would not be possible to follow safety norms while carrying out exam process for over 1.5 lakh students who are not only from the city but also from other parts of the state.”
From frisking students to handling of answer copies and invigilation will be a challenge. LU spokesman Durgesh Srivastava said, “The decision to announce exam has been taken after government’s direction.
