Higher Education Minister Noraini Ahmad has asked public universities to be sympathetic to students hit by physical intakes and registrations suspension.
She said she understands students and parents’ anguish over the higher learning institution’s decision.
Expressing her concern over the unexpected infection, she urged those students who have already reached their premises to stay there and wait for further instructions.
She further apologised for the trouble as the move has triggered anger against the ministry. Youth ministers like Syed Saddiq have offered aid to the affected students.
