"Our under-graduation degree is supposed to end in four years, but we, the students of 46th batch under the 2016-17 academic session have been in third year for almost three years. We haven't finished our third year yet," said Nur Hossain, one of the protesters.

"We sent a memorandum to the Vice-Chancellor's office demanding completion of our year-final examinations. But our demand has been refused by the administration," he added.
