RGUKT students refused permission to sit for mid-term exams

Vijayawada: The management of Rajiv Gandhi University of Knowledge and Technologies (RGUKT) announced that nearly 1,280 students of Nuzvid Triple IT were not eligible to appear for the mid-term internal semester examinations.  

According to a press release issued by the Triple IT (Nuzvid) Director's office here on Friday, the students belonging to various departments from the first year to the final year failed to attend the classes for more than a month. As such, they were not allowed to appear for the exam due to insufficient attendance.

Speaking to The Hans India here on Friday, Nuzvid Triple IT Director Prof V Venkata Dasu said that the Triple IT conducts exams during three semesters in a year. The highest marks obtained in the best of the two semesters would be considered for promoting them to the next academic year. So, there was no problem to the students, he added.  

He said the announcement of ineligibility of the students is common in universities. He admitted that making a large number of students ineligible for the examination might be rare. He said that there would be no impact on the career of the students in future even if they were not allowed to sit for this semester. 

However, the students who abstained from the classes said that did not attend classes as they were frightened by the recent incidents like students suicide attempts and other controversies. "This was the only reason for them in not attending the classes,   said one student, on condition of anonymity. 

He said that most of the students returned to the college recently after Christmas holidays. But the college did not allow them to sit for the examinations and the incident was causing a lot of worry to the students, he said.
