There were no books, only few lectures were held initially, no online lectures during the lockdown, no update on exams or books. All we got were empty promises. Finally, they told us that we have been promoted to second year and apparently internal exams were going to be held. Nothing has been communicated to us on that front. I didn’t register for the second year because what is the point of getting a degree without even giving the exams?”

Even now, I only have books for 4 out of 6 subjects but there is no update on exams.”
