Jalandhar, August 17

Students of other states pursuing GNM course from the nursing colleges of Punjab are upset as they say they might not be able to appear for practical supplementary examination being organised by Baba Farid University of Health Sciences from August 19 to 28.

Want no loss of time

The university authorities maintain that this is the second chance for them to save their future and that students have been given sufficient time of 1.5 months to make arrangements. However, the students are seeking postponement again as they say it was still impossible for them to make it to Punjab owing to the prevailing travel restrictions and lack of amenities.

Supriya, a student from Bihar, said: "I have got a message from my college to appear for my compartment examination but there is no way that I can return, given the flood and Covid conditions in my home state. The college authorities have expressed their helplessness in the matter".

Mike, a student of the course from Arunachal Pradesh, said: "There are no buses or trains or air travel facilities at the moment from my state. So I cannot reach my college to appear for the examination. I have been demanding cancellation of the examination but to no avail."

The university authorities said: "We want maximum number of students to take their practicals and clear the pending examination at the earliest so that there is no loss of time. In any case, if we think that there are genuine issues, we may even allow them a third chance". — TNS
