Wait is finally over. University of Kashmir has kick started the admission process for various post graduate courses this year.
Scores of students have submitted their application forms for the entrance test in various courses. The admission process started late this year given the summer unrest which disturbed the academic calendar in 2016. Last year the admission process started in mid-February and class work started from the first week of March.
“The admission process seems to be crumbling in the university which was ranked one among the top 100 universities of India,” said Gowhar, an aspirant who is desperate to get admission at KU.
Professor Mohammad Ashraf, Dean academic affairs, KU, said due to last year’s unrest the examination of final year students got delayed and that is the reason that admission process for PG courses started late.
Last year, classes for the first semester classes started on time and the students were supposed to write exam in May-June. But due to the unrest the exams were held in December-January.
“The students are frustrated. Unlike KU, the students of Central University of Kashmir (CUK) and Islamic University of Kashmir (IUST), did not face problems”, said Mohammad Irfan, another student.
Presently running the two semesters, Kashmir University has decided not to take supplementary shift this year. “It is not possible to cope up with three semesters and a supplementary shift at the same time,” said Prof Ashraf.
