Rawalpindi Students protested against Government’s decision to hold Physical Exams.

Students of Fatima Jinnah Women's University in Rawalpindi are angry and have taken to the streets.

Students gathered outside the university to protest the government's decision to take physical exams. One student said, "Throughout the year, we used to take online classes, so exams should be conducted online as well."
Another student who took part in the demonstration said that teachers posted two hours long videos on social media instead of taking classes online. "We had to find out for ourselves from this clip."

Students complained that initially, the university announced that there would be online exams. "Now, two weeks before the assessment, they have released the date sheet of the physical exams without consulting any students."

The protesters added that they would end their protest only if the university administration assured them of proper marks, online exams and delay in exams.

Students across the country staged protests and sit-ins in several cities after Federal Education Minister Shafqat Mahmood announced the holding of exams in July.
