HYDERABAD: After series of postponements due to the Telangana agitation, the first and third semester examinations of post graduate courses of Osmania University started on a peaceful note on Wednesday in all the campus and constituent colleges.
Nearly 40,000 students from different PG courses are writing these examinations being held in about 200 examination centres spread over campus, constituent and affiliated colleges.
Some students registered their support for Telangana and Central government's ‘indifference' on the issue wearing black badges, but at the same time preferred to write the examination.
“We want to continue the agitation but also ensure that academic year is not disturbed,” said several students.
Exams were held for MCA, MBA, M.Ed, M.P.Ed, MBA, MA, M.Sc, M.Com, MSW, MFC, MCJ, M.Li.Sc, BCJ and B.Li.Sc courses. University administration too was confident of a smooth affair thanks to the peace committee initiatives that interacted with the students and paved way for smooth conduct of the examinations. Large number of students said they were ready to write the examinations earlier too but some unfortunate developments on the scheduled day of the examinations forced them to withdraw.
Vice-Chancellor T. Tirupati Rao went round the colleges to over see the conduct of the examinations.
Officials of the State Human Rights Commission have also visited the campus colleges.
The Vice-Chancellor convened a meeting of the principals of campus and constituent colleges in the evening to review the situation and expressed satisfaction.
