The State 's decision to promote non-exam intermediate semester students has worried students that they will have to take two exams together as and when they are held.

A large section of intermediate-semester students from a number of colleges and universities have written to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Vice-Chancellors of State-run universities to resolve the examinations and to clarify the evaluation method.

The State 's decision to promote non-exam intermediate semester students has worried students that they will have to take two exams together as and when they are held. In their letter, the students pointed out that there was no mention of the merging of the two semesters in the UGC guidelines. "The second and fourth semester students must study two major portions of the syllabus and take the exams at the same time. Also, if the 80-20 weighting pattern could be assigned to terminal semester students, then why should a similar decision not be taken for intermediate semester students as well?" the letter asked.

Fearing a setback due to the excessive pressure exerted on both semesters in the examinations, either successively or together, the students sought state intervention.

Rabindra Bharati University VC Sabyasachi Basu Raychaudhuri confirmed receipt of the letter.
