@theshiva08: Need subject exemption we written 2-2 exams in pandamic and also 2-2&3-1 syllabus was held on Microsoft teams or zoom app so these is the reason we haven't attend the classes properly who are staying in non remote areas so we need #subjectexemption
@VenuBharadwaj3: We are First Batch in R18. If We Don't Get Subject Exemption. All R18 Batches Also Won't Get in Future. Every R-18 Student Needs Subject Exemption Right! Matter of 15 Seconds. Let's Make Trend on Twitter with #jntuhsubjectexemption
Students who were supposed to graduate in 2022 are demanding an exemption of all theory subjects for those who scored credits ranging between 150-160. On the other hand, the institute has fixed the credit limit at 160. The students claim that this is a disadvantage when it comes to higher education opportunities and future job prospects too.
Students informed that about 9,000 students are struggling because they haven't been granted the subject exemption. They were already struggling because of COVID-19 for two years and they say they deserve the option of subject exemption.
