Disruptions,disconnections:still they hope for bright time ahead

 CNM Digital Journalism Training Program

Final year  UG students are leaving their campuses amid a big surge  in Covid-19 second wave in Kozhikode district.They had to leave their physical classrooms much ahead of their scheduled time due to the pandemic.  They attended virtual classes for nearly long months. Exams were held,following strict Covid-19 protocols. Using public transport ,that too in very limited numbers was a real concern,especially for women.Colleges with  transportation facility was a sort of relief for some students.But,others it was a tough task.

Projects and Vivas were conducted,online. However, many students feel Covid lock downs really disrupted their campus life, write TT Asmina and  N Ashika  

Covid-19 pandemic has affected the entire educational systems. The virus has forced universities across the world to suspend physical classrooms and shift to online classes. Government decided to shut down educational institutions in an attempt to reduce the spread of Covid-19.
     For the outgoing UG students, they lost the charm and excitement of campus life  in their later  second year and  nearly the third whole year .
  They have lost the beautiful days in their life . They didn’t get much  opportunity to engage and  interact with their friends and teachers during their decisive academic times. Usually,the third year marks a good rapport and team work among students and teachers,along with fun trips and exciting events.
Nasrin Shan,a Final year BA English,Malabar  Arts and Science College for Women,Chekkiad says:
 “I missed offline classes a lot.  Interacting with friends and teachers, spending time with them,everything is a big loss for me.”
Lack of public transportation facility during the examination  was a real concern for many. Rasla Fathima,another student in the same batch  narrates it as a nightmare,travelling in a pandemic time:
“I travelled long distance to attend the exams. I had to pick connection vehicles to reach home. I spent Rs. 150 on daily basis as travelling fare as there was no proper public transport services ,considering the student’s plight  and it took much time to find a vehicle and reach home. Travel trouble and fear of corona really mattered.”
After long months break,they  returned   to college only for attending the examinations.And,wearing masks,throughout the day was a hard task.
There has been a change of pattern in examinations. The Covid pattern offered more options in questions.
Another remarkable change was attending exam without marking their names and signatures in attendance sheet. Similarly exam invigilators also were  exempted to put sign on the hall tickets.
Exams are over and it is time to say good bey to their colleges . The time has really changed that they can’t even think about their send off party. They didn’t get a chance to celebrate great events or to have a study tour just before the course end. This New year is really a worst year for final year students, that their campus life is confined to an online platform.  The final year students attended their viva through online. They worked hard to submit their project report in the time of pandemic.
“I longed for an exciting college tour with my friends and teachers in the final year. I thought ,at least in the final year the pandemic threat will disappear and all my expectations will come true, But it was only my dream . My college day programs and other arts and sports programs are remained as dreams”-says Amrutha Priya another outgoing Final BA student at Malabar.
      They  are leaving the campuses by wishing their juniors  bright  college days. Now they have great expectations in  their minds . They are expecting about a good future without the fear of Covid-19 pandemic. They are leaving campus with a hope of reunion.
  Salha Mariyam Saleem,a final year student  of High Tech College,Kallachi points out the disruption that Covid-19 pandemic brought into this world:
”  The global pandemic has driven me crazy. I found it arduous to concentrate on academics. It was difficult to reach exam on time for the students like me  who travelled long distance  .”
  It was suffocating using masks for a long time and some other students had to rush to get bus on time because there was only limited bus services available “-says Arshina a third year student,
MET College,Nadapuram.
“Daily traveling was risky during this pandemic.  Even if social distancing protocol was there, people don’t pay much attention.
 But there is some hope as question paper pattern has changed and exam got liberalised-commented Anlita Dias, third year student,Nadapuram Govt. College.
Traveling was an issue during exam time. And breathing was not easy while wearing masks. But the new question paper pattern was friendly with overall ceiling marks. It did break the ice-says Souda KP,a third year student at MET College, Nadapuram.
“Traveling was not a problem for me. I found great difficulty to concentrate on my studies.  “-says Vaishnavi Manohar,a third  year student at Sreenarayana College Vadakara.
” It is a great loss that I couldn’t interact closely with my friends. We missed many memorable moments in our college days due to this pandemic “-says Marwa,final year BA English literature student,Malabar Arts and Science College for Women,Chekkiad,Nadapuram.
