After the students of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) decided to boycott the end-semester exams amid the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protests, the university administration wants students to appear for exams over email and WhatsApp, reported The Indian Express.

School of International Studies (SIS) Dean, Aswini K Mohapatra said in a letter sent to all Centre Chairpersons on Monday saying that the decision was taken after a meeting of the Deans of Schools and Chairpersons of Special Centres with the Vice-Chancellor and other officials ”in view of the extraordinary situation” on campus.

According to the proposed method, question papers will be sent to the students by their course teachers which they have to submit to the respective course teachers by December 21, the Express reported.

”Students may submit the answer scripts either through email or images of hand-written scripts through WhatsApp or personally to course teachers,” Mohapatra was quoted as saying.

However, there is no method or procedure to ensure transparency and that students do not cheat. ”In the given circumstances, there’s no other way. I am only concerned about the future of student,” Mohapatra wrote.

The move had been decided after a meeting between the Vice-Chancellor, the Deans of Schools, the Chairpersons of Special Centres and other officials.
