Panaji: The National Students’ Union (NSUI) of India, Goa submitted a memorandum to Goa University asking the authorities to resolve various issues faced by the students. “Online classes has been started from 1st September 2020, initially the online classes were going good but eventually due to the Academic term 2020-2021 issued by Goa University for for Undergraduate and Post Graduate courses all the colleges are in race to finish the syllabus of six months in just three and half months through online classes, this has caused many problems.
Due to this teachers are taking full day online classes till late evening making it very stressful and tiring for students and few colleges are also taking classes on Sundays,” said NSUI President of North Goa, Naushad Chowdhari.
As students are trying to meet ends to study online it has asked to reduce syllabus for the final year students for the end semester exams-don’t include ISA/IT syllabus for the semester exam and also postpone the Semester Examination dates, give one week of preparation break from the day of it’s scheduled date for UG and PG students since students are finding it difficult for preparing in short period of time.
Conduct the Semester Exams in online mode as it will be safe for students and teachers and also since the mode education was online such as Classes, ISA/IT, Submissions, Project discussion.
The NSUI has also sought to use examination fees of last semester for the upcoming semester exams since last semester exam was canceled and the fees were not utilised.
