Things are getting heated as students have reached the NUML Islamabad university premises and are currently protesting outside the gates regarding the administration policy of conducting on campus exams. Students claim that the quality of education that was provided throughout the semester is not up to the mark and the administration had changed its decision 16 times regarding its policy to conduct examinations.
Apparently, the following student seems to be the head of the protesters and this was his statement to Samaa News:
