HYDERABAD: Heavy rainfall across several districts has left students appearing for semester exams worried. They fear that they might not be able to travel to their test centres, and have urged authorities to conduct the exams only after the situation improves.
Over the last 24 hours, districts such as Adilabad, Nirmal and Nizamabad recorded more than 250 mm of rainfall. And this is likely to continue as the IMD, Hyderabad has forecast heavy to very heavy rains for the next few days. Students using RTC buses to commute worry that this might become a hurdle.
Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad (JNTU-H) officials informed TOI that the exams will be conducted as per schedule. “We have spoken to the exam centre heads in the affected areas. They have informed us that the situation is under control. Hence, we have decided to go ahead with the exams,” said Manzoor Hussain, JNTUH registrar.
