2/3rd DU students, i.e. more than half students suffering:
Approximately 50 percent of the students have themselves suffered from covid or had their immediate family members infected. So, this analysis tries to highlight the mental and emotional stress experienced by around 2/3rd DU students amidst this crisis. Hence, the survey results are shared with the Delhi university administration. Also, it is endorsed by student organizations of 23 different DU-affiliated colleges. It includes colleges like Hindu, Kirorimal, St. Stephen’s, and more who stand united against the conduction of exams.
How to resolve the crisis of these DU students?
As per the recent survey, the student union of different DU colleges is against June exams. Also, petitions demanding the cancellation of final exams are being signed. Thus, DU students cannot be put into such an unimaginable amount of stress and appear for exams with mental trauma.
Also, 47.6 percent of the students don’t have an access to the Internet connection, and 48 percent don’t have the resources to appear for OBE. Previously, the physical mode was available and students were able to use cyber cafes. However, in these times of crisis, none of this is possible. Considering all these problems, and after running a survey, students decide to protest against exams.
