The Jawaharlal Nehru University students boycotted the exams on Thursday (December 12) over the hostel fee hike issue, even as the School of Sanskrit and Indic Studies (SSIS) saw students appearing for their papers.

Professor Hari Ram Mishra of the SSIS said there was full strength of students who appeared for exams in the 10 am to 1 pm shift.

Sources said the SSIS was the only school where exams were held. There was no immediate reaction from the varsity administration.
