KU reschedules UG 6th semester paper in view of CMAT

SRINAGAR: In a major relief to hundreds of undergraduate students, University of Kashmir has rescheduled the paper of their upcoming 6th semester examination in view of the CMAT examination.
A notification issued by Assistant Controller o Examinations at KU on Sunday said that the ‘Human Resource Training and Management Development’ paper of BBA 6th semester earlier scheduled by the varsity on January 30 will now be held on February 4.
The KU’s change in the date sheet comes days after Kashmir Reader carried a report over the undergrad students’ demand to reschedule the January 30 paper in view of the C MAT exam, which makes them eligible for admission to MBA programme at seven thousand colleges across India.
The students feared that in view of the prevailing weather conditions in the valley and the frequent closure of Srinagar-Jammu highway, they might not be able to make it to the examination centres on the examination day as they had to write the C MAT exam outside the valley on January 28.
They had also alleged that the KU had kept an “unnecessary” gap of nine days between the paper on January 21st and that of 30th and had asked the varsity authorities to adjust the latter on any of these days.
With the students having already lost an academic year due to the undue delay in their UG exams, it would have cost them another year had the KU not rescheduled their paper. The students would have to wait till next year in case they opted to miss this year’s C MAT.
Meanwhile, besides the January 30 paper, the KU has also rescheduled ‘Human Resource: System and Strategy’ paper of BBA 6th semester examination from January 27 to February 1.
Likewise, the UG 6th semester papers “English Literature (Indian writing in English)” and “English Literature (Post Colonial Literatures)”, which were earlier scheduled on January 15, will now be held on January 19 while as ‘Post Colonial Literatures’, earlier scheduled on January 18, has also been postponed to January 19 by the KU.
Pertinently, the KU had proposed combined 5th and 6th semester examinations in August this year to enable them appear in the proposed second entrance test, which was scheduled in November.
However, due to the lockdown in Kashmir since the abrogation of Article 370 on August 5, the combined semester examination was delayed prompting the KU administration to cancel the November shift of admissions.
