Entrance Exam For BA Courses In Jadavpur University
Earlier, the university had scrapped the entrance exam system and announced that the admissions will take place only on the basis of the marks obtained in the class 12 board exams. However, students and teachers demonstrated protests over the decision and brought back the entrance test system fighting against the management.
Students even went on a hunger strike and the varsity was under stress for a couple of days. A couple of students who participated in the hunger strike had to be rushed to the hospital after their health condition deteriorated.
