The tall claims of State Higher Education department failed to meet the expectations of students due to non completion of syllabus in several Government Degree Colleges in Jammu.
Although various colleges hired 800 candidates for 38 subjects for the 2018-19 session by government colleges for teaching various subjects to complete syllabus, Students of government degree colleges (GDCs) in Jammu are demanding that extra classes be taken so that their syllabus can be completed before examinations.
Talking to Young Bites correspondent Amritpal Singh said that for third and fifth semesters just a few days left and will are still facing hardship to cope up with incomplete syllabus, we are still waiting that our syllabus is completed.
He added that only way out is that the authorities could make necessary arrangement for extra classes.
It is pertinent to mention here that there are 47 government degree colleges in Jammu province, including 13 in Jammu, seven in Kathua, six in Rajouri, four each in Udhampur and Doda, three each in Poonch, Reasi, Kishtwar and Ramban districts, and one in Samba district.
The approach adopted by the authorities is condemned by students and several being critical of the college authorities said that if even the authorities hired more than 800 teachers on academic arrangement by various government degree colleges this year, the syllabus of some of the subjects were yet to be completed. What is the purpose for hiring teachers when the purpose is unfulfilled? They asked.
Rahul Jojra another student said that every year, the college authorities appoint candidates to take classes but still the syllabus remains incomplete. This is not the first time that the syllabus is incomplete, yet authorities remain in deep slumber and woke up every time students resort to protest demonstrations.
Her added that students who are financially sound can afford private coaching but students who come from the lower-middle class families cannot.

These subjects include chemistry, physics, Math, English, botany, zoology, geography, education, commerce, Urdu, environmental science, electronics, computer applications, biotechnology, geology, Persian, Hindi, Sanskrit, political science, music, economics and history.
