Acting on students' grievance, Devi Ahilya Vishwavidhyalaya (DAVV) on Monday extended the exam form submission date till November 8. Monday was the last date for submission of exam form date for first, third and fifth semester of BCom, BA, BSc exam.

Earlier, scores of students from different colleges affiliated to the DAVV submitted memorandum to the university registrar requesting for extension of exam form submission date on Monday.

Students complained that due to festivities they got less time to submit exam form and most of the students failed to submit their examination forms at the university or different examination form forwarding centres.

It is to be mentioned that more than 270 colleges in eight different districts affiliated to the DAVV. Acting on students' complaints, university registrar give five days more time to the students and extended exam form submission date till November 8.

Students to get only two more days

Though the university extended exam form submission date till November 8, but students virtually will get only two days as university and examination form forwarding centres will remain close on November 4, 6 and 8 on account of Muharram, Gurunanak Jayanti and public holiday on Saturday.

In such condition, students will get only Wednesday and Friday to submit their exam forms. If this is not enough, Government Arts and Commerce College (GACC) on Monday requested university to shift examination form forwarding centres to some other government college quoting reason that they had not enough manpower and space to continue as base.

College told university that they had already responsibility to conduct exam of 5,500 students and it is difficult to take responsibilities of 4,500 private students.

BCom Private students in dilemma

Though the university extended final date of exam form submission, future of thousands of BCom second semester private students is hanging in balance as university is yet to declare their exam results. Crying foul over university, students said that how could they submit our next semester exam form with no previous semester results.

Mayank Sharma, second semester private student, said university exam department can't accept incomplete form and in case no result, what we will fill in previous results column. Sharma added that university callous attitude left thousands of students career in dilemma.
