This year’s academic year has been confusing throughout the corona background. There is serious concern among students and parents who do not know when any test will be held. The Central Government has already canceled the CBSE Tent exams. Many states have also canceled several board exams and promoted students to upper grades.
The Telangana government has also canceled the Tent exams. Officials also released the results by assigning marks to students based on formative assessment. The government has promoted Inter First Year students in Telangana to Secondary without any examinations.
However, no decision has been taken so far in the case of inter-secondary examinations. Authorities will conduct a review of corona conditions in the first week of June and make a final decision on the tests. However, the CBSE has not yet taken any decision on the Class 12 exams.
The meeting will be attended by Union Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal, Women and Child Welfare Minister Smriti Irani and Information Minister Prakash Javadekar. The meeting will be held in a virtual setting. The situation in the respective states will be reviewed.
The authorities will decide on the conduct of the examinations. In a letter to the respective states, Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal asked teachers to look into all possibilities for conducting exams with a view to the safety of students.
Meanwhile, the Center is considering proposals to conduct examinations for only the major subjects out of a total of 374 subjects in the CBSE Class XII. Marks obtained in these subjects are expected to be assigned to other subjects. Clarity on this topic is likely to come in another two days.
However, students are demanding the cancellation of the exams. They are concerned that it would not be appropriate to conduct tests at this time when the corona is booming. To this extent they want the government through posts on social media.
