"As students of NLS, we are committed to do our best to help bridge this issue of access. Taking the lead, some of our students had already started an initiative to ensure technical equipment such as laptops, dongles, etc, at least are available to aspirants who need them. Building upon this, student representatives from across various NLU student bodies have come together and are collaborating to create a database of students who would be willing to assist aspirants, wherever they are, in whatever access issues they might be facing-be it laptops or other equipment required for the exam," the statement reads.
It is further stated that if any aspirant is facing grave issues with respect to access, they may fill the attached Google Form with requisite details, and the student body shall assist them in any manner possible.
They have requested the aspirants to reach out at the earliest, as it might take a little time for them to process the logistics.
