CBSE Students considers 2020 as a troubled year. Hence, a group of students has submitted petitions at change.org to cancel upcoming board exams. The CBSE Board Exams 2021 are scheduled to start from 4th May 2021 and will last up till June 10. This schedule was announced by the ministry of education. However, a group of CBSE students believes that board exams should be cancelled and are running a petition for it.
Why do the CBSE students want the cancellation of Board Exams?
The CBSE students hold the view that online classes didn’t help them in any way possible. Also, their classes remained suspended for some time after the declaration of the covid-19 lockdown. Hence, online classes started late and were not helpful. The students are yet left with a lot of uncovered syllabus which worries them.
As per the CBSE students who are running the petition, most children were unable to take online classes. Unavailability of resources like smartphone and internet connection hurdled the student’s education. Hence, a lot of incapable students could not impart online classes because of their helplessness.
These are the justifiable reasons for which several students are submitting petitions. Hence, they ask for the cancellation of the Board Exams altogether.
CBSE’s take on the student’s hardships:
CBSE has made considerable changes in student’s favor, owing to the pandemic and online classes. Hence, there has been a reduction in the syllabus, changes in exam pattern, and also alterations in the marking scheme. Also, the board exams 2021 have been delayed up till May. Even the practical exams have been delayed and will be conducted in March. Therefore, ample changes have been made for the convenience of CBSE students.
What does the petition by the CBSE students say?
The student’s petition states that it is unfair to conduct Board Exams this year. It also adds that students cannot perform their best due to the shortcomings of online classes. Hence, some students are unable to attend classes and those who do, can’t grasp anything. The petition further includes that the coaching institutions which provided some assistance have also been closed. Nevertheless, delaying the exams will put unnecessary pressure on the students. Hence, these are the issues highlighted in the petitions.
