Students protest to implement carry forward system, at Veer Narmad varsity
Students of Veer Narmad South Gujarat University staged a protest at its 50th Special Convocation ceremony in Surat on Wednesday, seeking implementation of a Carry Forward system.
In the middle of Vice-Chancellor Shivendra Gupta’s speech, some students stood up from their seats and chanted the slogan “Implement Carry Forward System” and “V-C Go Back”. Gupta and the heads of departments seated on the dais looked visibly shocked. Gupta stopped his speech for a moment but later continued, without acknowledging the students’ protest.
Speaking about the protest, VNSGU Syndicate member Bhavesh Rabari, who represents the National Students Union of India, said, “The students were protesting to implement the Carry Forward System in the university. In this system, if a student fails in a subject in the first year in the undergraduate course, he or she is allowed to sit in the second year and write the exams of both first year and second year”.
