He said the result of first semester backlog result was declared in 2017 but the KU administration is yet to conduct the backlog exams of other semesters.
“Even after a passage of more than one year, KU authorities have failed to schedule exams of other semesters,” he said.

“The sluggishness of the university will have adverse impact on our career,” the students said.
