Pune: Out of 20 students from First Year BCom from Garware College, who were denied to seat for the final examination, eight were allowed to appear for the exams after paying late exam fees.
Earlier, the students did not fill the examination forms and so were denied to take the exams. On Thursday, parents of some students approached the college and requested the authorities to allow their wards to appear for the examination, however, the college rejected the pleas stating that the dead line has been crossed.
One of the students, Shradha Salunke said that after requesting the college authorities that their complete one year would be wasted, they allowed them to fill the examination form and allotted the admit card.
“We have to pay the late fees for the examination and now we are appearing for the examination,” said Salunke. Another student, Kajal Andekar said that only eight students were allowed as rest of the students decided to refrain from the exams.
When contacted, the college authorities said that in order to save the students academic career, they have allowed the students to appear for the exam and in a special case, got their examination forms filled and issued them admit cards. “Since other students chose not to appear for the exams, we did not force them to come and fill the forms,” an official said.
