tu-students-take-to-social-media-to-call-for-online-exams

Prajwal, a first-year student at Tribhuvan University studying BSc Physics, is nervous about the approaching exams. With the lockdown lifted, the university has stated that exams will begin on July 24 in physical settings.

Prajwal stated, “The virus is not dead.” “During examinations, when a significant number of students assemble, the chance of becoming infected will be high. It would be preferable if the exams could be taken online.”

Many other TU students, like Prajwal, are nervous about the approaching exams. Many people have gone to social media to that the university give exams online. The hashtag of choice has been #WeWantOnlineExam.

In a popular Facebook post, Nishant Gaire writes, “Yes, there will be just 25 pupils in the exam hall, but we come into contact with many more while at the exam center.” “What if one of the pupils is infected?” you might wonder. Other universities, aside from TU, have successfully done online exams. Organize an online exam or use internal to promote us… #WeWantOnlineExam.”

Bishal Giri, another student, raises the possibility of a third wave. “The lessons online, but why should the tests be physical?” says the student. Giri is a writer. “Experts have predicted that Nepal would be hit by a third wave of the pandemic. I’d like to bring this to the attention of other student unions and request that tests be performed in a and secure manner #healthmatters #wewantonlineexam.”

Public health specialists are concerned as the government’s lockdown has been loosened and individuals have begun to gather in large groups. Exams and gatherings, they claim, can act as catalysts for the virus’s propagation.

Tribhuvan University decided in June to hold all exams that had been postponed owing of the Covid-19 pandemic this year. Bachelor’s level exams, which were due to be held last year, have yet to take place.

After mid-July, the university plans to hold exams for first and second-year programs in the arts, education, science, and management streams of the Bachelor’s degree, as well as the first year of Bachelor’s level under the faculty of law and the final year of the Master’s degree.

The pre-Dashain examinations will be attended by around 250 thousand students, while the post-Dashain examinations will be attended by approximately 600 thousand students.

Public health specialists are concerned as the government’s lockdown has been loosened and individuals have begun to gather in large groups. Exams and gatherings, they claim, can act as catalysts for the virus’s propagation.

Dr Sameer Mani Dixit, Director of Research at the Center for Molecular Dynamics, remarked, “This is not a indicator.”

“There should be no social events until everyone has been vaccinated. The virus will continue to spread unless everyone is vaccinated.”
