73 students expelled due to low evaluations by IIT-Roorkee
With an unannounced culture being followed this year, Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee debarred an estimated 73 students from the college, with the reason being the poor scores and grades attained in their first-year examinations for B.Tech program course.
The news came as a shock for everyone, as the culture is basically not practiced. Students who scored below 5 CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) in the exams were shown the door, on Wednesday.
Undertaking Signed By the College Officials
During the admissions, the students were thoroughly informed and asked to sign the undertaking, stating clearly that the poor or any sort of low performance may result in expulsion from the institute.
On Thursday, a meeting was conducted on the sheer pleas of the students, and around 160 Senior Officials, including Lecturers, HODs and the Director itself were present during the presentation.
Counseling Sessions Steered as an Outcome of Mass Pleas
IIT-Roorkee organized counseling sessions, during which, several students admitted to the fact that the frequent work load and intense academic force were intolerable for them, and they were finding it complicated to manage as well. Officials stated that rather paying much attention to the studies, these students were busy adoring the relishes of “first-year of college”.
