SHILLONG: The Khasi Students’ Union (KSU), Federation of the Khasi-Jaintia and Garo People (FKJGP) and the Hynniewtrep National Youth Front (HNYF) on Thursday expressed their resentment over the decision of the North Eastern Hill University (NEHU) to implement the semester system at the under graduate level and voiced their support to retain the old system where the University undertook the responsibility of correction of answer scripts.

“One of the major reasons is that the Vice-Chancellor of NEHU did not hold any discussion with the teachers and hence they were neither able to suggest their point of view nor air their grievances againt introduction of the semester system,” KSU president Daniel Khyriem said.

Khyriem further mentioned that the meeting of the VC with the Principal Council is just an eye-wash as no consensus was drawn from the teaching fraternity.

FKJGP president Joe Marwein said the major issue is the UGC guideline which stipulates that corrections of answer scripts will be undertaken by the respective colleges.

“We are opposed to such a rule as the question of biasness will come into play,” Marwein said, while adding that the old method should be retained.

In this regard, the organisations have extended their full support to the Syngkhong Kyntiew Ri (SKR), an organization of Hynniewtrep university and college teachers, which has voiced its opposition to the unplanned implementation of the semester system.

It may be mentioned that the implementation of semester system at the Under Graduate level has been criticized by the University administration and the MCTA including the SKR and College teachers.

Sharp criticisms have come from the teaching fraternity over the nature of implementation that is being followed. Most of the issues revolve around a central point that the authorities are yet to hold a proper meeting with all the teachers and take their points into consideration.
