A section of students of Rajshahi University of Engineering and Technology (RUET) staged a demonstration on the campus yesterday morning demanding cancellation of newly adopted examination system.

Led by 13 and14 series students under the academic sessions of 2013-14 and 2014-15, they started demonstrations programme at the university’s Shaeed Minar Chattar that started 8am that continued till 5pm. They also announced to continue their movement for unidentified period.
Earlier, the students also submitted memorandum with their demands to RUET Vice-chancellor Prof Dr Rafiqul Alam Beg on his office on 22 January.
According to the credit system, introduced during the 2013-14 session, a student will have to achieve minimum 33 credits out of 40 to pass and move to the next session.
RUET Student welfare Affairs adviser Dr Quamruzzaman Hiru, said, 33-credit system has been introduced for the greater welfare of the students. But it is not meant to them.
But the students of 13 series have been movements consecutively against this rule. They demanded to cancel this rule which is no such type of credit system at any engineering and technology university in the country.
Rakibul Hasan, an agitating student, said the RUET academic council in 2013 introduced the credit system that faced a big number of students to suffer year loss.
Talking to the journalist, RUET vice chancellor Prof Rafiqul Alam Beg said the students’ demand is ‘illogical’.
Out of 725 students, only 29 could not manage the required credits in the ongoing academic session due to their own failures to attend classes and for not studying well, said the VC.
Mentionable, the classes for the first year B.Sc (Engineering) Courses under the academic sessions of 2016-17 of the campus started yesterday.
UNB adds: As per the previous rule, students were allowed to attend classes and examinations of the next session in spite of failure to achieve minimum credits. Later, they could obtain the credit through appearing in the examinations. The Ruet authorities cancelled the rule in 2013-14 academic year.
