Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank states that even though physical classes have resumed, there will be a continuity in online classes. Hence, no attendance is mandatory in educational institutions.
Mr. Pokhriyal quoted, “ We will not let go of the online classes, even after the reopening of schools and colleges.” Therefore, as per the education minister, online classes will continue hand in hand with the physical classes. It is preferred that around 50 percent of the students continue studying via online mode. Hence, this will eliminate unnecessary crowd in the institutes and promote social distancing and safety.
Education Minister explains the working of the authorities in the new normal:
He declared that the educational institutions will not go back to their original state anytime soon. Hence, only after the authorities are completely satisfied with the situation, all the students will be allowed to resume physical classes. Therefore, all safety protocols and social distancing norms will be followed for now.
He also reached out to the worried parents and assured them of their children’s safety. Hence, the minister asked them to send their kids to school and entrust their ward’s safety with the authorities present there.
Education Minister’s statement on the upcoming JEE / NEET Exams:
JEE Mains and NEET students are in a great dilemma over the conduction of their exams. Hence, the education minister cleared their confusion by asking them to gear up for physical examinations. He said that the Board Exams have been pushed up till May. Hence, this will entrust the students with ample time for preparations and studying.
The situation is also expected to get better by then as the covid-19 cases are constantly receding. However, the biggest vaccination drive of India has also begun in full swing. Hence, it brings a ray of hope for better situations in the future. Therefore, the JEE and NEET aspirants are advised to prepare for physical examinations with no fear and confusion.
