Students under the aegis of ABVP staged a protest urging the Mangalore University to conduct exams which were postponed on the direction of Dakshina Kannada Deputy Commissioner following a spike in Covid-19 cases in the district.
Mangalore University had commenced undergraduate exams for the first, third and fifth semester from August 2 and was scheduled to commence exams for postgraduate programmes from August 5. Following the direction of the Deputy Commissioner, the ongoing exams were postponed all of a sudden on Tuesday evening.
In a memorandum submitted to the Vice Chancellor of Mangalore University, the students said that majority of the students pursuing their UG courses were from the district. Only a handful of students were from Kerala.
