“It will be injustice with students who have better IQ and acumen which though cannot be measured by academic score,” he said.

A senior faculty of Kashmir University wishing anonymity said the varsity has the capability of holding entrance test. “University should decide after exploring all options. They cannot ruin the future of thousands of students who are working hard to crack the test,” he said.

Media spokesperson Kashmir University, Professor Shahid Rasool said if conditions permit, the University will conduct an entrance test. “If the condition doesn’t permit then we have to decide on doing away with the entrance test. As of today, keeping in view the situation, we have decided to withhold the decision,” he said.

Professor Shahid said that the decision has to be taken after discussing the issue with the administration. “They should allow us to hold exams in the valley. This is an emergency and we cannot decide without consulting the government. The decision will be taken hopefully by the second week of July,” he said.
