Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has made an important suggestion regarding the incomplete board examinations, which needs to be considered seriously.
He said that in the present situation it will no longer be possible to conduct the remaining exams of CBSE 10th and 12th, so children should be passed on the basis of internal examinations, as done with children of 9th and 11th.
He also said that the entire syllabus for next year should be reduced by at least 30 per cent and the entrance examinations of JEE, NEET and other higher education institutions should also be taken on the basis of this reduced syllabus.
If the Ministry of Human Resource Development accepts this proposal of Sisodia, then there will be a great relief to the students, especially those who are hanging in the balance of 12th class.
Actually, the corona crisis has disturbed the entire rhythm of studies and examinations. The lockdown due to Corona in India was decided when the exams were in their final stages.
The remaining papers due to the lockdown had to be postponed. Now since nothing is certain about the date of removal of the lockdown, the matter of examinations also remains uncertain. Sometimes it is being said that examinations will be taken, sometimes that the remaining subjects will be given average marks. There was also discussion in the middle that the remaining examinations would be taken online.
Children are very upset by this dilemma. They do not understand that they should continue their preparation for these subjects or to get rid of this pressure and focus on preparing for competitive examinations. The government is not in a position to give any assurance to them as of now, because no one knows when the conditions will be normal.
Meanwhile, the time of the last session is over, so it is better not to take the exam, and the numbers are given on the basis of internal examination. It is not right to delay any such decision.
The children of children studying in tenth-twelfth are more sensitive. Even small things affect them a lot at this age. They are very concerned about their future at this time. Prolonged indecision may have a wrong effect on their mind and brain.
Anyway, children are very upset with the current crisis. Economy and livelihood - negative news coming from the employment sector is disappointing them. Suppose that even if the situation improves in a few days, after sitting empty for a long time, suddenly they will not feel comfortable in giving the exam again.
The suggestion to relax the syllabus is also very important. Students should be given some relief in view of the mental pressure created under adverse conditions. It is expected that the government and the board will make a decision about this soon.
