Srinagar, Sep 24 (KNS): Tenth semester students of Bachelor of Law say their question paper on Child Law and Juvenile Justice was out of syllabus.

Speaking to Kashmir News Service (KNS) said that examination setters are taking students for a ride by asking out of syllabus questions.

The anxious students blamed the Kashmir University authorities for playing with their future by coming up with such errors and placing them under stress.

“The errors made by examination department of Kashmir University have put our careers at stake. There is no one to listen us at University. The repeated errors show that Kashmir University is no more a student-friendly institution. We feel it is because the ineligible persons have been posted at prestigious posts without any merit,” said a group of angry law students.

The scenes at Kashmir University and its South and North campus were also disturbing. Some female students fainted after seeing the out of syllabus paper while some students even cried in examination hall.

“The affairs at Kashmir University are becoming from bad to worse. No accountability, no transparency but Kashmir University has become a bag of errors. Our careers are at stake. The Kashmir University authorities are least bothered,” said another group of law students.

Interestingly, this was not first time this year that law students complained of end semester exam question papers out of the syllabus. The students of LLB semesters have also complained of out of syllabus questions and also that questions were not framed as per marks scheme given the syllabus.

Meanwhile Kashmir University in a statement said some examinees of B A LLB 10th semester have claimed that their examination paper of "Child Law and Juvenile Justice" which was held on September 24, 2022 was allegedly out of syllabus.

"As per the Standard Operating Procedure to be followed in such cases, the said question paper will be sent for evaluation by an expert committee to ascertain the genuineness of the claims of the examinees, in a time-bound manner. Further course of action will be taken only after the expert opinion is received. Students are advised to stay assured that appropriate justice will be done with them to safeguard their examination prospects," statment reads. (KNS)
